VA – GUN RIGHTS – Prince Edward to discuss Second Amendment Sanctuary status at special meeting

The Prince Edward County Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at 7 p.m. to discuss its Second Amendment Sanctuary status. “The Board will receive citizen input and consider a resolution regarding declaring Prince Edward County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County,” county spokesperson Kate Pickett Eggleston said. “The meeting is open to the public; however, only citizens and taxpayers of Prince Edward County will have the opportunity to provide input.” The meeting will take place at Prince Edward County High School on Zion Hill Road in Farmville. Several counties in Virginia have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries. The push behind these resolutions stems from the results of the 2019 election which saw the Democrats take control of both the House and Senate in the General Assembly. The expectation is that with control of both chambers and the Governorship, Democrats will pass gun control legislation in the 2020 session. Gov. Ralph Northam has said that they would start with the legislation he introduced for a special session on gun control this past summer that ended after 90 minutes. In a statement to CBS 6, Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a gun rights group, he said that the “flood of Second Amendment sanctuary localities across the state, and the massive crowds at those government meetings, is sending a message to the General Assembly that Virginia does not need any more unconstitutional gun control.”  [full article]
