New Mexico Counties Vote To Become ‘Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties’


As DC gears up to infringe on your rights and violate the Constitution, multiple counties across New Mexico are voting to declare themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties” in a similar way to how some cities have voted to become sanctuary cities for those who are in the US illegally.

SAN JUAN COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – Three more counties have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties. San Juan, Lincoln and Eddy Counties have all adopted the resolutions, Tuesday.

At the San Juan County meeting, hundreds of people filled the room. These counties now join Quay, Curry, Union and Socorro Counties who pledge not to enforce certain new gun laws if they pass the state legislature.

The New Mexico Sheriff’s Association has been vocal against the gun bills, including one that would require background checks on all gun sales. It says the laws would be unenforceable and punish law-abiding citizens.

Other counties are also considering taking up the measure.

And here’s another report as the movement gains traction in the state.

Second Amendment advocates are praising the movement.  For instance, the New Mexico Shooting Sports Association took to Twitter to advocate for more counties and municipalities to join in.

This is just the beginning, more counties and municipalities will soon join this group! #nmpol #nmleg #2A

Recounting the counties that have declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties,” NMSSA highlight them in tweets.

We have just been informed that Lincoln County has passed a resolution to declare themselves as a “Sanctuary County” for the Second-Amendment! #nmpol #nmleg #2A

On Tuesday, the group pointed back to what seems to have been the catalyst, which was a resolution passed in 1994 in Carton County, New Mexico.

Back in 1994, Catron County NM passed a resolution opposing Federal Gun-Control. Today, counties are standing up again against anti-gun laws and for the rights of their residents. #nmpol #nmleg #2A

Additionally, the group also tweeted on Tuesday that Valencia and Hidalgo counties both voted to join in.

BREAKING: The Valencia County Commission has voted to become a “Sanctuary County” for the Second-Amendment! #nmpol #nmleg #2A

Hidalgo County too! Their County Commissioners voted tonight to declare themselves as a “Sanctuary County” for the Second-Amendment! #nmpol #nmleg #2A

— NM Shooting Sports Association (@NM_SSA) February 21, 2019

In all, 13 counties have passed these resolutions.

Well done!  Now, if we could just get people to start taking their counties back one at a time like this on every single right the government is supposed to be protecting but has been infringing on, then we might actually have a shot at restoring America, one county at a time.
