NC – GUN RIGHTS – Davidson County Commissioners unanimously vote to become Second Amendment protection county

Davidson County gun owners can claim a victory as the Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday night to make the county a Second Amendment protection county. The board, which is made up of seven Republicans, heard from 20 members of a standing-room-only crowd of more than 150 during a 30-minute public-comment period. Every person who spoke did so in favor of the proposed Second Amendment protection resolution. “I want every one of you to think long and hard about the decision to declare Davidson County a sanctuary county for the Second Amendment,” Tina Snyder, a Lexington resident, said. “There’s a lot of patriots standing behind me who would support that decision, and they’re voting, too.” The resolution, introduced by commissioner Zak Crotts, affirms the county’s support of the right to keep and bear arms, and prohibits the use of any county resources to enforce a law that would unconstitutionally infringe upon those rights. Davidson County joined Wilkes, Stokes, Surry, Rowan, Lincoln and Cherokee Counties in passing such a resolution. However, the resolution holds no legislative power based on the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution that establishes federal law as taking precedence over any state or local law. Commissioners Steve Shell, Chris Elliott and Crotts spoke in favor of the resolution before the vote.
