Petition to Harold Brooker, Greg Jones, Scott Chitwood, Lynn Laughter, Barry Robbins, Roger Crossen, Mark Gibson

Whitfield County to become a Second Amendment Sanctuary.

Proposition to the Board of commissioners and sheriff of Whitfield County, Georgia to the offices of Chairman Lynn Laughter, District #1 Barry Robbins, District #2 Harold Brooker, District #3 Roger Crossen, District #4 Greg Jones, to County Administrator Mark Gibson and to Whitfield County Sheriff Scott Chitwood. This is a petition / proposition to make the Whitfield County, Georgia a Second Amendment Sanctuary in reference to resist any state or federal legislation that could further restrict constitutional rights of citizens listed under the second amendment of the United States Constitution.  These possible infringements include, but are not limited to, universal gun background checks, high capacity magazine bans, assault weapon bans, red flag laws, and any other counter measures to hinder or restrict constitutional rights of the people.  While the county may not be able to provide complete immunity from laws intended to be resisted, under the Dillion Rule the county can be granted the authority to decide the priority of enforcement. By refusing to enforce specific laws or appropriate funds towards their enforcement, our county can severely limit the impact of laws passed by the state or federal government. There have been more than 320 counties, cities and townships in over 19 states thus far that have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries. It is our duty and responsibilty as the people, the electors of power to implore that our rights our forefathers granted be protected and to ask the Board of Commissioners to construct and vote on a resolution declaring the county's intention for no further infringements or enforcements of said infringments of the Second Amendment of the United Stastes constitution listed above but not limited to in paragraph two along with a signed letter from the Whitfield County Sheriff, and every one elected here on, endorsing the resolution.
