Southampton County’s original Second Amendment Sanctuary resolution is sufficient
Southampton County was a late adopter of their Second Amendment Sanctuary resolution and had the foreknowledge that localities might be able to pass their own local gun-control. Southampton preemptively addressed that situation in their Sanctuary resolution. Hence, Southampton County doesn’t need to pass VCDL’s “No local gun-control laws” resolution.
Here is the key part of the Southampton County Second Amendment Sanctuary resolution adopted on February 25, 2020:
…WHEREAS, House Bill No. 421 proposes to amend and reenact §15.2-915 authorizing any county, city or town to adopt or enforce an ordinance, resolution, or motion governing the possession, carrying, storage, or transporting of firearms, ammunition, or components or combination thereof in the locality;
WHEREAS, the Board of Supervisors of Southampton County, Virginia wishes to publicly and officially express its position, in the event that the aforementioned or similar legislation is enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia and signed by the Governor.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Supervisors of Southampton County, Virginia that it hereby expresses that it does not intend to exercise any such authority which may be granted by the General Assembly of Virginia pursuant to the aforementioned or similar legislation…
Great job, Southampton County Board of Supervisors!
