So, Deeds began researching his options and learned that cities and counties across the country were declaring themselves sanctuaries for gun owners and fierce defenders of the Second Amendment. Since the fall, nearly 20 Texas counties have adopted similar resolutions, according to the conservative news website The Texan.

Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions, as they’re often called, have been passed in counties and cities in Colorado, Virginia and Illinois, where its believed the movement got its start, among other states.
