BATAVIA (FOX19) - On Monday, the Clermont County Board of Commission voted to become a Second Amendment sanctuary county.
It passed with a unanimous vote of 3 to 0.
The resolution declares that the board opposes any restrictions on the Second Amendment and reads as follows:
“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 resolution protects the right to bear arms even if state or federal laws are passed restricting ownership or possession.
Similar resolutions trying to protect gun rights are being adopted nationwide and locally.
Kenton County recently became a Second Amendment sanctuary according to our media partners at the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Boone County plans to vote on its resolution on Jan. 14.
