On March 1, 2021, the Garvin County Sheriff’s Office, with the support of the County Commissioners declared the county a Second Amendment Sanctuary. We were unable to find a copy of the resolution signed by the commissioners due to Garvin County not having a website that we could locate. However, the Garvin County Sheriff indicated in his own declaration and Facebook post below that a resolution was passed. If you have a copy of the resolution, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

OFFICE OF THE
Garvin County Sheriff
To the Citizens of Garvin County, Oklahoma:
Today, I am honored to announce that as your Sheriff, I formally declared my support of the Second Amendment Sanctuary movement, and that your Board of County Commissioners has officially spoken out in support as well. Through these actions, we join other Oklahoma counties in a united stance against laws that would infringe on rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment, and we become part of a strong community of American cities and counties that pledge whole-hearted support of our right to bear arms.
My Declaration Supporting Second Amendment Sanctuary has been officially published and I hoped to make an even more powerful statement. In conversations with each of your County Commissioners, I discovered that each of them strongly supports making a similar official statement. Accordingly, in its meeting today March 1, 2021, the Garvin County Board of County Commissioners unanimously Passed a Resolution in Support of Second Amendment Rights, and through this Resolution, has identified our County as a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.
According to this Resolution, the Garvin County Board of County Commissioners declared Garvin County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County, and that the Board of County Commissioners stands firm in support of “the rule of law in the United States, and against official government action that would limit our citizens’ lawful rights granted under the Second Amendment. In so doing, Commissioners Gary Ayres and Mike Gollihare, along with District One Foreman/First Deputy Randall Chandler (acting on behalf of the citizens of District One due to the retirement of former Commissioner Kenneth Holden) pledged to our citizens, businesses and visitors that beginning today, March 1, 2021, Garvin County shall be known as an American Second Amendment Sanctuary County.
Through these actions, we stand with a growing number of our sister cities and counties of Oklahoma in a united front. I am proud of our work in support of this important national issue, and extend my heartfelt thanks to each and every citizen who personally urged me to speak out. With your help and the help of our commissioners, we have taken a stand in support of one of the foundational American rights that we in rural Oklahoma hold most dear. I want to personally and publicly thank the Commissioners for their strong stance, and the citizens of Garvin County for their support.
Respectfully, humbly and with my heartfelt thanks,
Garvin County Sheriff
