Hood County (Texas) calls itself a ‘Second Amendment sanctuary county’
The resolution says that they will not enforce any restriction that infringes on the Second Amendment.
The Hood County Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday saying authorities there will not enforce any restriction that infringes on Second Amendment rights — dubbing the local government a “Second Amendment sanctuary county.”
Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds proposed the idea last month.
“I’m not going to stand by as a sheriff for this county and they are not going to stand by as the commissioners’ court of this county and let Second Amendment rights be violated,” Deeds said. “This is all about the right to keep and bear arms.”
After the mass shootings in El Paso and Midland and Odessa, several state and federal leaders called for tougher gun laws.
County leaders oppose stricter gun laws, so they drafted the resolution.
