More Nebraska counties approve Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions

(NTV News) More Nebraska counties have approved resolutions declaring themselves “sanctuary” Second Amendment counties. On Tuesday, the Adams, Harlan and Polk county boards all unanimously approved the resolution. Kearney County Clerk Myra Johnson said the Board of Supervisors discussed the resolution at its Tuesday meeting but will not vote on it until its May 4 meeting. York County Clerk Kelly Turner said the Board of Commissioners also discussed the Second Amendment sanctuary resolution and will consider it at its May 4 meeting. The proclamation comes as President Joe Biden recently announced a plan to address gun violence. The “sanctuary” designation allows for counties not to enforce federal gun laws they consider too restrictive. According to the Nebraska Firearm Owners Association, counties including Buffalo, Clay, Hall, Lincoln, Merrick and Sherman have passed the Second Amendment sanctuary resolution. Last week, Gov. Pete Ricketts also signed a proclamation to declare Nebraska a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State.
