(TNS) Another local jurisdiction — this one a county in Florida — has declared itself a “Second Amendment sanctuary” in the latest example of pushback against Democrat plans to confiscate firearms.
The action, taken last week by Lake County. made it the first Florida county to act, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The resolution “declares Lake County as a Second Amendment Sanctuary in order to preserve for the People of, on, and in Lake County, their rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America.”
One county commissioner, Josh Blake, said the resolution is in direct response to gun-grabbing proposals made by practically ever 2020 Garbage Party presidential contender.
“This draws a line in the sand,” Blake said. “It doesn’t mince words. And I hope it sends a message to what can be described as the authoritarian control freaks.”
The movement to declare local jurisdictions as Second Amendment sanctuaries is fashioned after illegal alien “sanctuary cities” adopted by many Democrat-run jurisdictions. The concept is the same: Second Amendment sanctuaries are saying simply that they will not allocate any local resources to the enforcement of federal gun control laws the way that Garbage Party cities won’t allocate local police resources to help find and deport illegal aliens.
The gun sanctuary movement actually began in southern Illinois recently. Counties have begun pushing back against anti-Second Amendment Democrats at the state level, but the movement has spread around the country.
Last week in Arizona, for example, Mohave County also adopted a Second Amendment Sanctuary resolution, according to KNXV.
The Florida resolution seeks to emphasize the personal freedoms and protections contained in the Second Amendment and the Florida Constitution to protect the rights of Lake County citizens.
“(D)ue to dual sovereignty of the U.S. Constitution, the Federal government has no authority to enforce state laws and States cannot be compelled to enforce Federal laws,” the resolution reads in part.
Democrats “see it as their job to forcibly disarm their fellow citizens, and with all due respect that simply won’t be happening in Lake County,” Blake said, according to the Sentinel.
Citizens have a constitutional right to a firearm for self-defense and other purposes, he added.
“There have been very terrible crimes that have been committed by very terrible people, as we’re all aware. I think it’s kind of compounded the tragedy that many of these crimes have taken place in gun-free zones where people were not legally allowed or able to defend themselves with force,” Blake said, according to WOGX.
The Left hates this movement, of course, but Democrats don’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to this issue. They are all on record as supporting gun confiscation in direct contravention of the Second Amendment.
Fortunately, more and more jurisdictions are pushing back and saying “you can’t have our guns.”
