Haralson County To Consider ‘Second Amendment Sanctuary’ Resolution

Haralson County could be the second county in the state of Georgia to adopt a “gun sanctuary” resolution during the board of commissioners’ next regularly scheduled meeting in February.

District-Three Commissioner Adam Budde presented the resolution on Tuesday, which is designed to prohibit or impede the enforcement of certain gun control measures perceived to violate the second amendment.

Budde stated that his resolution would protect county resources from being used to enforce what he termed “unconstitutional” gun laws, such as specific gun safety laws and firearm confiscation statutes, if ones were approved by state or federal lawmakers.

Budde’s resolution comes at a time that 400 municipalities in 20 states have adopted local resolutions to defy state and federal gun laws.

Experts have suggested that sanctuary resolutions are largely symbolic and not legally binding.  A number of state attorneys general and other legal experts argue that there could be court challenges or lawsuits for localities that do not enforce state gun laws.
