MI: Residents speak out about Livingston County becoming second amendment sanctuary county

There's a debate over sanctuary counties and the second amendment in Livingston County with a resolution to make Livingston County a Second Amendment sanctuary county. The resolution was presented in front of the public safety and infrastructure committee, and it would limit what law enforcement can enforce.

It’s a topic that has many people speaking out. People are making their points about why Livingston County should or shouldn't be a Second Amendment county. Some say it’s a good idea while others say no way.

"I believe that we need sensible gun laws that are designed to keep everyone safe," said Cindy Kalogeropoulos, a long-time resident of Livingston County.

Video available.
 

MI: Jackson becomes 2nd Amendment sanctuary county after tense 6-2 vote

If Jackson County's sheriff and prosecutor ignore enforcing any future gun laws they find unconstitutional, they'll have the blessing of the Jackson County Board of Commissioners.

The board voted 6-2 Tuesday to become a 2nd Amendment refuge county – better known as a “sanctuary county.” The wording was changed, because of the negative connotation associated with the phrase “sanctuary cities,” county officials said.

More than 100 people packed the Feb 18 county board meeting. While the majority of the crowd supported the resolution, 15 of 32 people speaking to the board were against it.

The resolution states the prosecutor and sheriff can use “sound discretion to not enforce against any citizen an unconstitutional firearms law.”

Grassroots efforts across Michigan to enact local ordinances or resolutions protecting 2nd Amendment rights are growing. The Jackson County Board of Commissioners is the latest local governmental unit in Michigan to approve a resolution supporting 2nd Amendment rights. The commissioners were first presented with the proposal early last month. The resolution supports the county Sheriff and Prosecutor in efforts to refuse to enforce unconstitutional firearms restrictions against any citizen. The original resolution presented to the full Jackson County Board of Commissioners originally declared the county a 2nd Amendment “sanctuary” County.

It seems at times like mighty revolvers have lost their thunder to polymer and steel semi-autos, but they possess a capability and quality that endures.

Sure, revolvers don’t pack the capacity or technology of their semi-automatic competition, but they still stir something in the soul. Whether you want to carry a revolver, keep it in a drawer for home defense, or target shoot, there are a variety of fantastic revolvers from a variety of manufacturers that can fit your needs.

Here’s a list of what we think are some of the hottest revolvers available today.

Gun-rights activists scored a Second Amendment victory in Virginia this week over the state's Democrat governor and legislature -- and gun-control financier and Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, Laura Ingraham reported Tuesday.

"Just a few months ago, anti-gun Democrats in Virginia thought they could easily ram through a new ban on so-called assault weapons and high-capacity magazines," Ingraham said Tuesday night on "The Ingraham Angle," "and Gov. Ralph Northam was supporting this bill, of course, with a phony argument that rolling back the gun rights of law-abiding Virginians would make all Virginians safer."

So what right, as a victim of a violent attack, do you have to fight back?

Eyewitness News spoke with a legal expert who says what you may consider self-defense could actually put you behind bars.

The heart races, pupils dilate, blood rushes to the brain and muscles and before the victim of a violent attack even realizes it, the body has entered into flight-or-fight mode.

Leftists are now seriously arguing that the right to trial supersedes the right to self-defense.
Thus, when you shoot a violent criminal who is actively trying to murder you, you have deprived your attacker of the right to trial by jury, thereby impinging upon his civil rights.

This is a really scary notion.

A future court of leftist judges may conflate the right to a trial with a prescription against self-defense, thus making any kind of self-defense illegal, as is the case currently in the UK and Canada.

February 19th at 5:00PM was the deadline for bills to advance from their chamber of origin. Bills to ban standard capacity magazines and increase the red tape to obtain a CPL did not receive a floor vote and are likely defeated for the session. A bill to reform Washington’s onerous background check system passed the House. Unfortunately, several anti-gun bills did clear this deadline and will also continue in the legislative process.

In early 2019, Tactica Defense Fashion introduced one of the most comprehensive lines of women’s concealed-carry gear and clothing ever produced. While some manufacturers have successfully dabbled in individual pieces of women’s gear like a purse, a holster or a few styles of range pants, Tactica went all in on its inventory, producing stylish clothing with thoughtfully designed features that female gun owners appreciate. With pass-throughs and ambidextrous false pockets incorporated into its sweaters and shirts for easy access to holstered handguns, female concealed-carry practitioners were suddenly able to dress for everyday carry without limiting their wardrobe to men’s-style blazers or oversized tops or slacks.

A county in Utah has shot down the idea of more gun control by becoming the first county in the state to declare itself a Second Amendment sanctuary.

The three-member Uintah County Commission voted unanimously Jan. 29 to pass an ordinance making the county a stronghold that refuses to comply with federal or state laws that county leaders deem unconstitutional.

The ordinance, Uintah County Commissioner Bill Stringer told The Daily Signal, is in preparation for anticipated unconstitutional legislation restricting gun sales and ownership at the state level.

The Marshall County Fiscal Court unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday evening which states the county will not follow any state or federal laws regulating guns that local officials perceive to be unconstitutional. The resolution follows other similar resolutions passed by counties to reassert gun rights across the Commonwealth.

The resolution would declare Marshall County a “safe harbor” for second amendment rights, while also expressing the county government doesn’t intend to use resources to enforce federal or state gun regulations it perceives as unconstitutional.

A Second Amendment advocate proposed a resolution to the Nelson County Board of Supervisors during its Feb. 11 meeting to support a call for muster of an unorganized militia in Nelson County.

The resolution came just less than a week before Gov. Ralph Northam’s push to ban the sale of assault weapons failed in the General Assembly on Monday, according to The Associated Press. Senators instead decided to table the bill for next year and ask the state crime commission to study the issue further.

The spokesperson for a group of residents in Catoosa County has been pitching the idea of making the county a “Second Amendment sanctuary” to local officials.

During the Feb. 4 Board of Commissioner’s meeting, resident Ray Blankenship identified himself as administrator of Catoosa County Georgia’s “Second Amendment Sanctuary Group,” and said he’s met with the sheriff about a resolution that would protect local gun owners against any new legislation that threatens the right to bear arms.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Today the taxing power, rather than chattel slavery, is the instrument by which the parasitical element of the population subsists. And that element, which includes politicians, panics at the slightest reduction in the state's power to plunder. Once you start liberating taxpayers, even a little tiny bit, nobody knows where it may end. —Joseph Sobran
