Growing number of cities, counties declaring themselves 'Second Amendment Sanctuaries': When it comes to gun control in America, no state is confronting the issue harder right now than Virginia.
For the first time in more than two decades, Virginia elected and just swore in a new state legislature controlled by Democrats.
“Virginia is officially blue, congratulations,” said Gov. Ralph Northam, D-Virginia, on election night 2019.
The new Democrat-controlled state legislature is vowing to pass gun control measures. That’s prompting some local governments to make their own moves by declaring themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuary” cities and counties.
So far, more than 100 cities and counties in Virginia have declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries.”
They’re not the only ones: from Florida to Colorado to Nevada and elsewhere, local municipalities are voting in favor of designating themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries.”
