Across the country, law enforcement agencies are telling their legislatures that they’ve had enough. From several states, they have decided to join forces in refusing to enforce laws that inappropriately limit the Second Amendment. The movement is called “Second Amendment Sanctuary”:
For instance, in New Mexico, 30 of 33 county sheriffs have signed a letter pledging to not help enforce several gun-control measures supported by Democrats in Santa Fe, according to the state’s sheriff association. The sheriffs, who are elected, say they are heeding the wishes of voters in the counties they serve. More than two dozen counties in the state have enacted ‘sanctuary’ resolutions backing the sheriffs and affirming that no tax dollars in their jurisdictions should go to enforcing the proposed laws.
