Second Amendment Sanctuaries are More Important Than Ever

The Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties movement could not be stopped by a mere global pandemic. County government meetings were delayed somewhat due to social distancing measures, but progress eventually resumed. Virtual meetings took the place of in-person meetings and resolutions were proposed and passed.

As we find ways to adapt and meet the challenges imposed upon our nation by this virus, many governors (and other politicians at every level) have taken the opportunity to enforce all manner of draconian “gun control” measures. From shutting down gun ranges and gun stores to refusing to issue concealed carry permits; politicians are now showing us their true colors.

If there was ever any doubt as to whether what we are doing in this movement is necessary or justified, one need only look to these gun-grabbing politicians who are treating this pandemic more like an opportunity than a catastrophe. We must keep the actions of these tyrants in mind as we continue to fight to make each and every county in our country a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.

Our Largest Update Ever

News Media

As usual, we try to make higher resolution national map graphics available for the news media to use when referencing this movement. All we ask is that if you use our graphics, please include a link to our homepage: https://sanctuarycounties.com/. Aside from that, the map is free to use. Here is a link to the Google Drive folder where you will find our most up-to-date national map: Click Here!

Article Updates

While county board meetings slowed to a trickle, we at SanctuaryCounties.com did not sit idly by. As we endeavor to ensure that this site is your primary source for information about the Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties movement, we used this slow period to make updates to many of the articles that we already published on the site.

New Resolutions

These updates took many forms, but the majority of updates we made involved finding and publishing the actual Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions that were passed by the county boards (or whatever term they use in each county). This is a very time-consuming task that involves pouring over various county government websites, utilizing some advanced Google search parameters, and in many cases even calling up county clerks via phone.

We generally find out about new Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties by finding a news story about them, so sometimes we will link to that news story as a source. However, we prefer to use actual source documents where possible, so finding those resolutions is a primary goal of ours. With that in mind, we are happy to report that we have updated 378 articles with actual copies of resolutions that were passed in support of the Second Amendment. You can see all of the articles on our site that have resolutions attached by visiting this page: https://sanctuarycounties.com/resolutions/.

Other Updates

Other updates that we have made include breaking many counties out of articles that accounted for more than one county. Due to our reliance on news reports in some cases to determine which counties have passed resolutions, sometimes we come across articles that account for more than one resolutions. In these cases we sometimes have to account for more than one county on our site using just one article. We have been working hard to track down alternate sources of verification (specifically passed resolutions) so that we can have one article per county.

New Sanctuary Counties

In addition to making updates to the articles that we already had, we have also been diligently adding new counties as they make their declarations and pass their resolutions. Since our last map update, we have added 74 new counties to our site and our map. In case you were not already aware, we do not add counties to our map until we have a corresponding article on our site with some form of verification that the county has passed a Pro-2A / 2A Sanctuary County resolution.

Corrections

We removed several counties due to inaccurate news articles. Unfortunately, we don’t control the reporting of various news outlets, so when we see information reported about a new Second Amendment Sanctuary County, we tend to assume that it is true unless we can prove otherwise. In this update, we had to remove approximately 5 counties from the states of Pennsylvania, Washington and Michigan due to inaccurate reporting.

  1. Missouri Constitution Article I, § 26 now reads: “That the right of every citizen to keep and bear arms, ammunition, and accessories typical to the normal function of such arms, in defense of his home, person, family and property, or when lawfully summoned in aid of the civil power, shall not be questioned. The rights guaranteed by this section shall be unalienable. Any restriction on these rights shall be subject to strict scrutiny and the state of Missouri shall be obligated to uphold these rights and shall under no circumstances decline to protect against their infringement. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent the general assembly from enacting general laws which limit the rights of convicted violent felons or those adjudicated by a court to be a danger to self or others as result of a mental disorder or mental infirmity.

  2. When was this added to the Missouri Constitution 2014? We have been debating adding the state as a full covered. But were not able to find a ACT.. guess this why. Even based on this Article it is not impossible for legislators to enact red-flag laws sadly.
