Gun, file (iStock / Getty Images Plus) TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — Cherokee County Sheriff Jason Chennault issued a declaration on Jan. 25, making the county a Second Amendment sanctuary. Chennault issued the following statement: I, Cherokee County Sheriff Jason Chennault, am joining other sheriffs across the State of Oklahoma who have declared their counties to be Second Amendment Sanctuaries. It is my intention, by making this declaration, to enforce our citizens’ right to bear arms, as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. As Sheriff and chief law enforcement officer of Cherokee County, Oklahoma, it will always be the goal of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office to provide service and protection to the people of Cherokee County without infringing on the rights of Cherokee County citizens who choose to possess firearms to protect themselves and their property. I am also announcing my support, and asking you to do the same, of Senator Warren Hamilton’s Senate Bill 631 of the first session of the 58th Oklahoma State Legislature (2021). If Senator Hamilton’s bill is passed, it will make the entire State of Oklahoma a Second Amendment Sanctuary. The Sequoyah County sheriff followed suit and declared his county a Second Amendment sanctuary as well on Jan. 26.
