LCS: Palo Pinto County designated a second amendment sanctuary
During the Nov. 12 Palo Pinto Commissioners Court meeting, the commissioners voted to designate the county as a second amendment sanctuary county.
The resolution states the county and commissioners court supports the second amendment to U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution protecting citizens’ right to keep and bear arms.
Palo Pinto County Judge Shane Long said a colleague came forth with a resolution which had been sent to him that the commissioners rewrote and adopted for Palo Pinto County.
“I think the commissioners court wanted to make a statement that we do support the second amendment of the constitution of the United States, that’s the reason for it,” Long said. “I think, probably, that comes on the heels of individuals like Beto O’Rourke making crazy statements about taking away guns. I’m sure that those kinds of things help make people want to reaffirm their belief and commitment in the second amendment.”
The commissioners further resolved their support for the Sheriff of Palo Pinto County and his decisions in the exercise of upholding the Constitution of the United States.
