Make Gwinnett Co. GA a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary

What would it mean for Gwinnett County to be a 2A sanctuary county? 
A 2nd Amendment County is any county that chooses not to enforce any gun laws they find to be unconstitutional. If Gwinnett Co. became a 2A Sanctuary, it would create a protection for any of the counties’ residents against any of Georgia’s laws that may be passed against the 2nd Amendment (unconstitutional). In simpler terms, this means all of the law enforcement within Gwinnett County will not enforce the unconstitutional gun laws and they would not be recognized should they be passed.

 

Who has been called upon and why?
Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway and Gwinnett County Chief of Police Tom Doran: These two men are in charge of the counties’ law enforcement. The powers granted to them allow them to dictate what their deputies/officers can and can’t do, and for that reason we’re calling upon them to not enforce any unconstitutional gun law that may be pushed within the state or county. For this reason, if both Sheriff Butch Conway and Chief of Police Tom Duran choose not to enforce any unconstitutional gun laws passed within our county or state, and/or they choose to agree with the creation and enforcement of an ordinance with the Board of Commissioners, Gwinnett Co. becomes a 2A Sanctuary.

Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners: The men and women that form the Board of Commissioners are responsible for both executive and legislative actions within Gwinnett. We would like to formulate an ordinance/resolution that would grant us the ability to declare Gwinnett County a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary in agreement and cooperation with local law enforcement. 

 

Why was this petition created? 
As of currently within 2020 and even prior into 2019, the Federal and State government across America has been proposing, passing, and enforcing all kinds of gun laws that are blatantly unconstitutional. These laws include but are not limited to: Red-Flag gun confiscation laws, magazine capacity limits, ammunition and firearm purchase limits, and “assault rifle” bans. 

There is currently a battle taking place within the state of Virginia to protect the constitutional rights of the law abiding gun owners within the state. Many of the people in charge of the law enforcement in certain counties within Virginia have made it clear that they will not enforce any of the laws should they be passed and have declared the county as a 2A sanctuary.

Now you may be asking yourself, that’s Virginia, what about Georgia? As of currently this “trend” of laws being proposed and passed to help and fight gun violence is sweeping the US both federally and on a state level. Georgia law makers themselves are even creating bills that would restrict our gun rights granted by the second amendment. So, with the threat of this unconstitutional fight against the second amendment and the law abiding gun owners, this petition has been created to fight to ensure that the residents of Gwinnett County Georgia are safe from any unconstitutional laws that may be pushed within the state of Georgia and to preserve our rights.

What is the Second Amendment? 
Amendment II of the US Constitution states:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

This amendment grants the RIGHT to ‘We the People’ of the United States to be armed no matter what the circumstance may be. It also allows ‘We the People’ (the militia) to fight against the government should it try and strip us of our constitutional rights.
