Virginia County Revolts Against Gun Control

Published

on

In the wake of the Virginia Beach shooting, the Virginia General Assembly is heading towards a special session that could see gun control proposals moving forward.

However, one Southwest Virginia county just turned itself into a gun rights sanctuary regardless if gun control is passed or not during the special session.

The Roanoke Times reports that Carroll County supervisors passed a resolution in April decrying the “slippery slope of restrictions on … Second Amendment rights” in both Virginia and the United States. The resolution declared the county a “Second Amendment Sanctuary.”

The Roanoke Times breaks down the specifics of this gun rights sanctuary trend:

Most gun-rights “sanctuaries” are in the Midwest or West. The states of Kansas, Idaho, Wyoming and Alaska are gun-rights “sanctuaries.” So are a majority of counties in Illinois, New Mexico and Washington, with Colorado not far behind.

On top of that, local jurisdictions east of the Mississippi have joined in the fray:

Besides Carroll County, only a handful of localities east of the Mississippi — in North Carolina, Maryland, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Maine and New York — have declared themselves gun-rights sanctuaries.

The development of gun rights sanctuaries is one of the more positive pro-Second Amendment trends sweeping the nation.

When the federal government and state governments won’t act, the localities must pick up the slack.

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.

Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.

President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
