Counties in Illinois are fighting back against the state legislature on gun control by passing “sanctuary” resolutions designed to protect law abiding gun owners.
“It’s a buzzword, a word that really gets attention. With all these sanctuary cities, we just decided to turn it around to protect our Second Amendment rights,” David Campbell, vice chairman of the Effingham County Board told Fox News.
Close to 20 other counties requested copies of his county’s resolution to review the details and possibly mimic the proposition, Campbell said.
“We”re just stealing the language that sanctuary cities use,” Effingham County prosecutor Bryan Kibler told Fox News. “We wanted to … get across that our Second Amendment rights are slowly being stripped away.”
