OHIO – Two Counties in Kentucky Pendleton and Kenton became sanctuary gun counties recently. Now Ohio has moved into law very similar protections.
This morning Monday January 13th the Clermont County Board of Commissioners met to pass a resolution “declaring the Clermont County Board of Commissioners opposition to any restrictions on the second amendment.” This passed with a unanimous vote of 3 to 0.
The board restricts:
“That the Board of County Commissioners adopts Resolution Number 008-20 resolving to (1) declare Clermont County’s commitment to the Second Amendment in order to preserve for the citizens of Clermont County, Ohio their rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America; (2) to express its intent to uphold the Second Amendment Rights of the Citizens of Clermont County, Ohio; (3) to oppose any infringement on the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms; and (4) through this Resolution hereby declares our rights, our freedom, and our liberty as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America.”
The county can now choose to not enforce laws which officials see as against second amendment rights like stock bands, high cartage bans, and the red flag laws.
This is Ohio’s second county to pass such laws to protect 2nd amendment rights recently Meigs County passed a similar law. A third county, Stark County is now working towards being a sanctuary County.
