I strongly encourage the Becker County Board to declare Becker County a Second Amendment sanctuary. This is a growing movement which as of August 2020 included 13 Minnesota Counties. From the interview in the Feb. 3 Detroit Lakes with Joseph Allen, Mr. Allen couldn’t have been more correct regarding the threats that exist to our Second Amendment Rights. If you doubt a threat exists, I plead with you to look up and read Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee’s bill H.R. 127: Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act. The verbiage and intent of this bill is stunning in it’s overreach. Less than two weeks into the new administration, this first attempt at stricter gun laws is stunning. There will be more to come.
