Resolution No. 38-20
To Declare Shawano County’s Vigorous Support of the Peoples’ Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms
Whereas, the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms is guaranteed as an individual right under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and under the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin, Article 1, Section 25 which states – “The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security, defense, hunting, recreation or any other lawful purpose.”; and
Whereas, the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms for defense of Life, Liberty, and Property is regarded as an Inalienable Right by Shawano County; and
Whereas, the people of Shawano County derive economic benefit from all forms of firearms use, including for recreation, hunting, and shooting conducted within Shawano County, using all types of firearms allowed under the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin, and
Whereas, the Shawano County Board is a body elected by the People of Shawano County and duly sworn by their Oath of Office to uphold the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin; and
Whereas, the Shawano County Board, on behalf of the residents of Shawano County, opposes any efforts to unlawfully infringe upon the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, or to unlawfully ban the possession and use of any firearms, magazines or ammunition now employed by the law-abiding citizens of Shawano County for the defense of Life, Liberty and Property.
Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Shawano County Board of Supervisors, in session this 23′ day of September, 2020, that it hereby opposes the enactment of any legislation unlawfully infringing on our rights under the Second Amendment, and further makes clear that all law-makers are hereby urged to honor the Second Amendment, as well as Article 1, Section 25 of the Wisconsin Constitution, and to be vigilant in their duty to avoid improperly or unconstitutionally abridging a citizen’s right thereunder to keep and bear arms.
Be it further resolved, that Shawano County shall not appropriate any funds for any enforcement of unconstitutional laws against the people of Shawano County, and requests the Sheriff to utilize his discretion to avoid the unlawful enforcement of any law which unconstitutionally impedes our fundamental Second Amendment right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Be it further resolved, that the Shawano County Board, hearing the will of its constituents, hereby declares Shawano County to be a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.
