2nd Amendment Sanctuaries in MN?

County board hears ‘2nd Amendment sanctuary’ request
The Hubbard County Board received a request Tuesday to adopt a resolution expressing their intent “to uphold and protect the 2nd Amendment,” declare the county a “2nd Amendment sanctuary” and promise to “oppose any infringement on the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.”

Jason “Bucky” Johnson of Park Rapids and Matthew Berge of Bemidji presented the resolution.

Is St. Louis County next stop for gun sanctuary?
As a pro-gun rights group presses the County Board to adopt a measure, commissioners wonder how much symbolism is too much.

Commissioners pass Second Amendment resolution
County Board revises language before giving unanimous support
The resolution was brought up for vote with commissioners Lovell and Roper voting in favor of its passage. However the resolution failed when commissioners Groskreutz, Young and Warmka voted against the resolution.

Commissioner Young then offered a resolution to change the word 'will' to the word 'may' in the section of the document which was being questioned. Following a second, the resolution passed with a unanimous vote.

The board then voted unanimously to also pass the Symbolic Declaration of Principle resolution.

So the County sheriff does not enforce any federal laws?

Is anyone here involved with any of this? I found this -

I'm not on FB so I had my wife try to get on the Washington County facebook group but never got a response. I would like to get involved but don't know how to find the group for my county. Anyone here active in this effort?

Nice speech on this issue by a North Carolina county Deputy Sheriff.

Do sanctuary counties still count during governor's emergency orders? We shall see.
