Algona, Iowa — Kossuth County’s Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution declaring the county a Second Amendment Sanctuary. Kossuth County Sheriff Roger Fisher says it shows elected officials in the county support for the U.S. Constitution. According to the Iowa Firearms Coalition, Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions at the county level do not supersede federal law, but would prevent county resources from being used to enforce gun restrictions that are at odds with the U.S. Constitution. Boards of Supervisors in Buchanan and Kossuth Counties adopted the policy statement this week. The coalition’s tally indicates Boards of Supervisors in 13 other Iowa counties have passed Sanctuary resolutions (and those other counties are Adams, Carroll, Chickasaw, Cedar, Clarke, Hardin Jasper, Madison, Mills, Mitchell, Pocahontas, Washington, and Wayne counties). Opponents say the resolutions are purely symbolic and carry no legal weight.
