Lake County, Florida has become the first Second Amendment sanctuary in the state. A resolution passed by county commissioners declared no authority will infringe on the Second Amendment rights of its law abiding citizens.
The Lake County Commission just voted to declare our county a “Second Amendment Sanctuary!” Thank you ￼Commissioner Josh Blake for bringing this forth and for your commitment to the Constitution. Proud to represent the most pro-2A county in Florida! ￼ @lakegov #sayfie
The measure states the government can’t compel officials to enforce federal laws, as it would give the government power far beyond what the Constitution intended.
Commissioner Josh Blake also targeted several Democrats in his comments on the proposal.
“Cory Booker, Kamala Harris — these people have all called for mandatory buybacks,” stated Blake. “I hope it sends a message to what can best be described as the authoritarian control freaks who… are not our problem anymore, as of yesterday.”
Last year, county commissioners approved a plan allowing county employees with a concealed weapons permit to carry firearms while on the job.
