At Tuesday’s Northampton County Board of Supervisors Regular Meeting, the board unanimously approved a resolution of support for the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution.
The resolution, which “urges the Governor and members of the General Assembly to take no action which would violate the freedoms in both constitutions,” is similar to others adopted across Virginia, but stops short of 2nd Amendment Sanctuary status.
Much of the response has to due to Gov. Ralph Northam’s proposal to tighten gun-control measures.
Locally, theTown of Exmore adopted a resolution to be recognized as a sanctuary town–they vow not to use tax dollars to enforce new gun laws.
