Five Illinois counties have now declared themselves to be “sanctuary counties” for gun owners, and 20 more counties in the state are considering the same move.
The push for “sanctuary” status is intended to send a message to the Democrat-controlled state legislature, which has considered numerous gun control laws again this session.
Fox News reports the declaration of “sanctuary county” indicates employees of that respective county will be instructed to ignore new gun control laws rather than enforce them.
Breitbart News reported that Effingham County was one of the first to proclaim its “sanctuary” status. Effingham County Board vice chairman David Campbell told Fox News, “It’s a buzzword, a word that really gets attention. With all these sanctuary cities, we just decided to turn it around to protect our Second Amendment rights.”
