(WZTV) — As more Tennessee counties continue to push "Second Amendment Sanctuary County" policies, one Tennessee lawmaker wants the state as a whole to support the Second Amendment. Rep. James Micah Van Huss has filed a resolution reaffirming Tennessean’s right to bear arms. Rep. Van Huss cites a book which states 262 million people worldwide have been killed by their governments and says it is a "God-given" liberty to stand against a tyrannical government. "We avow that Tennessee will not comply with extra-constitutional actions from any government or body that infringes on our citizens’ right to keep and bear arms," the legislation states. In addition, Rep. Van Huss extends an invitation to the citizens of Virginia as gun control bills make their way through the legislature there. "We extend a safe harbor to Virginians and other U.S. citizens whose constitutional rights are being violated by their elected officials." The bill specifically states citizens have the right to bear arms which includes AR-15s, AK-47s, and similar firearms.
