Democrat bullies are getting a taste of their own medicine. Democrat-controlled states, counties & cities have been establishing illegal alien safe zones for some time. Currently, there are over 300 such “sanctuary” jurisdictions across the country.
Two can play at the sanctuary game. A rapidly growing number of counties are declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries. The county sheriffs are refusing to enforce gun-control laws that they consider to be infringements on Americans’ constitutional right to keep & bear arms.
NORMAL AMERICANS IN OR, WA, NM, IL ARE FINALLY STANDING UP TO DEMOCRAT BULLIES
Normal Americans are rebelling against majority Democratic rule in Washington, Oregon, New Mexico and Illinois. Elected sheriffs and county commissioners say they might allow some people deemed to be threats under “red flag” laws* to keep their firearms. In states where the legal age for gun ownership has been raised to 21, authorities in some jurisdictions refuse to confiscate guns from 18- to 20-year-olds.
In the 2018 mid-term elections, Democrats took control of more state governments. They immediately began enacting repressive gun control rules, regulations & laws, using the excuse that they want to prevent mass shootings. Their real goal, of course, is to disarm law-abiding citizens so Normal Americans will be easy prey for armed government agents when socialism is established.
Oregon, Washington, New Mexico and Illinois are in the vice grip of Democrat rule. Democrats hold the governorship and both chambers of the state legislature in these four states. Nevertheless, brave county sheriffs are standing up to the Democrat bullies out of respect for the Second Amendment and Americans’ rights to self-defense.
SECOND AMENDMENT SANCTUARY COUNTIES ON LEFT COAST
This writer grew up in Washington State. So far, 21 county sheriffs and other elected officials have refused to enforce un-Constitutional gun laws that have been enacted these last two years. There are 39 counties in Washington State and additional counties are considering declaring their jurisdictions Second Amendment sanctuaries, too.
The Civil Rights of Oregonians have been going steadily down for decades. The current governor, who went to law school with this writer, is so full of hatred for her fellow Americans, she is working overtime to kill our Second Amendment Rights. She and her fellow travelers are weakening citizens’ ability to fight off the tyranny of the Rule of the Elites: Socialism.
Voters in eight Oregon counties have approved ordinances stating that residents have the right to own semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, even if federal and state law bans them.
SECOND AMENDMENT: FLYOVER COUNTRY VS. LEFT COAST & EAST COAST
This right-wing sanctuary movement is exposing the rift between rural and urban America as much as the one between the Republican and Democratic parties. Small conservative counties are pushing back against statewide edicts passed by big-city politicians.
“If they want to have their own laws, that’s fine. Don’t shove them on us down here,” said a member of the board of Effingham County, Illinois, about 215 miles south of Chicago.
Backers of the Second Amendment sanctuary movement say they want to take it nationwide. Leaders in all four states where it has taken hold have formed a loose alliance. They share strategies or texts of resolutions. They also say they are talking with like-minded activists in California, New York, Iowa and Idaho.

*A red flag law allows police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may (in a Liberals opinion) present a danger to others or themselves. A judge makes the determination to issue the order based on statements and actions made by the gunowner in question. After a set time, the guns are returned to the person from whom they were seized unless another court hearing extends the period of confiscation.
NOTE: THIS PERSON HAS NOT BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME. Based upon OPINION and not FACTS, an American is deprived of a basic Civil Right. Like Abuse Prevention Restraining Orders, this will be used & abused by family members who have a dispute with the targeted person, and not for safety. This is yet ANOTHER scheme to destroy Second Amendment Rights.
Such orders are known as “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” (ERPO) in Oregon, Washington, Maryland and Vermont; as “Risk Protection Orders” in Florida; as “Gun Violence Restraining Orders” in California; as “risk warrants” in Connecticut; and as “Proceedings for the Seizure and Retention of a Firearm” in Indiana.
