Local sheriff reacts to Gov. Stitt making OK a Second Amendment Sanctuary State DUNCAN Okla. (TNN) – A local sheriff is among gun rights activists who are proud that Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill making Oklahoma a Second Amendment Sanctuary State. The bill states any policy, state or federal, ordering the buyback, confiscation or surrender of guns or ammunition is now considered an infringement on citizens rights to bear arms. “The second amendment has been something they have been coming after, certain individuals, anti-gun activists, has been coming after this for years,” McKinney said. He said Biden’s orders won’t stop criminals from acquiring firearms but make it harder on the average person to get a firearm for protection. In February 2020, he declared Stephens County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County. He was the second sheriff in the state to take that action. “I will not take part in any kind of gun confiscation from law-abiding citizens,” McKinney said. “I will continue to go after the criminals. Whether they have weapons or not, we’re coming to see them, but the law-abiding citizens, that’s their right under the Bill of Rights and I will protect those Bill of Rights as long as I’m sitting here.”
