Virginia County Opposes Dem Governor’s Gun Control, Declares Itself “Second Amendment Sanctuary”

Appomattox County in Virginia has declared itself a “Second Amendment sanctuary” and will not comply with Democrat governor Northam’s gun control legislation.

WashingtonExaminer reports a county in Central Virginia is the latest in a string of local municipalities to declare itself a safe haven for gun owners.

The Appomattox County Board of Supervisors on Monday unanimously passed a resolution declaring itself a “Second Amendment sanctuary.”

“The current governor of Virginia has stated that he intends to endorse and pass into law legislation that is unconstitutional as it pertains to the rights enumerated in the U.S. & Virginia Constitution,” the resolution states. “The Appomattox County Board of Supervisors is concerned about the passage of any bill containing language which could be interpreted as infringing the rights of the citizens of Appomattox County to keep and bear arms or could begin a slippery slope of restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of the citizens of Appomattox County.”

More than 100 people packed the board room on Monday night, the Lynchburg News and Advance reported.

“This is the silent majority,” resident Troy Carter told the newspaper. “And they’re waking up.”
