Boone County becomes Second Amendment sanctuary

Gun Rights

BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (FOX19) — Boone County officials voted unanimously to approve their Second Amendment sanctuary resolution Tuesday. Boone County Commissioner Jesse Brewer wants to make the county a Second Amendment sanctuary, he says, in order to protect gun rights for people in the area. “There are some legislators across the state that are trying to pass what are known as red flag laws,” he told FOX19 NOW, “and red flag laws can vary, but they do take a bite out of the Second Amendment and they do infringe upon those rights.” Red flag laws allow police or family members to request court-ordered removal of firearms from a person they believe presents a danger to themselves or others. It isn’t immediately clear what effect Brewer’s proposed resolution will have, but he says it would have the teeth to challenge any perceived infringement upon Second Amendment rights.
