    Thumbs up Yavapai County AZ Declared ‘Second Amendment Sanctuary County’

    This where I live and these are my Yavapai County Supervisors. Took two hearings, but we got it done!



    Second Amendment supporters fill the Yavapai County Administrative Services Verde Valley Complex.
    Wednesday, the County Supervisors listened to a pro-Second Amendment presentation, as well as
    passionate pleas to consider making Yavapai County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.

    Meanwhile in Commiefornia, land of anti-free-America, the only sanctuary is for illegal criminals. Law abiding folks are oppressed.

    Good for Arizona! We still haven't ruled out relocating to AZ.

    YAVAPAI COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

    RESOLUTION NO.2020

    A RESOLUTION OF THE YAVAPAI COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS SUPPORTING THE SECOND AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION AND ARTICLE II SECTION 26 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA, AND DECLARING YAVAPAI COUNTY A “SECOND AMENDMENT SANCTUARY COUNTY”

    WHEREAS, the Board of Supervisors met in Regular Session this 5th day of February 2020; and

    WHEREAS, Arizona Revised Statute § 11-251 (17) and (21) provide authorization for the Board of Supervisors to “adopt provisions necessary to preserve the health of the county” and “make and enforce necessary rules and regulations for the government of its body, the preservation of order and the transaction of business;” and

    WHEREAS, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, adopted in 1791 as part of the Bill of Rights, protects the fundamental and individual right of the people to keep and bear arms; and

    WHEREAS, the Supreme Court of the United States, in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 [2008], affirmed an individual’s right to possess firearms unconnected with service in a militia for traditionally lawful purposes such as self-defense within the home; and

    WHEREAS, the Supreme Court of the United States, in McDonald v Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 [2010], affirmed that the right of an individual to “keep and bear arms,” as protected under the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and therefore applicable against the several states of the United States; and

    WHEREAS, the Supreme Court of the United States, in United States v. Miller,307 U.S. 174 [1939], opined that firearms that are part of ordinary military equipment, or whose use could contribute to the common defense, are protected by the Second Amendment; and

    WHEREAS, Article II, Section 26 of the Constitution of the State of Arizona provides that “the right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the state shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain, or employ an armed body of men.”; and

    WHEREAS,upon assuming office the members of the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors took an oath to support and defend the United States Constitution and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, and today hereby reaffirm our commitment to the United States Constitution and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona.

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, by the authority granted by the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona and the people of Yavapai County, Arizona, do hereby commit to stand and defend their rights and liberties as guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona.

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors affirms its support of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and declares Yavapai County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will not authorize or appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies contractors, buildings, detention centers or officers for the purpose of enforcing laws that unconstitutionally infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms.

    Approved and Adopted by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors this 5th day of February 2020.

    Fellers and Gals, you can use this as a template or example for you to use if your county hasn't approved making your county a Second Amendment Sanctuary county.
