IFC WELCOMES NEWS OF BUCHANAN COUNTY’S “SECOND AMENDMENT SANCTUARY” STATUS
The Buchanan County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a resolution on Monday to make their county Iowa’s 14th Second Amendment Sanctuary.
“This is a great day for the residents of Buchanan County and the state of Iowa,” said Michael Ware, IFC Chair. “Every week Iowans are sending the message to Washington that in the Hawkeye State we cherish all of our civil rights.”
While Second Amendment Sanctuary legislation at the county level does not supersede federal law, it does prevent local resources from being used to enforce measures that are at odds with the U.S. Constitution. The IFC has been working with state and local elected officials to protect the right of Iowans to keep and bear arms in the wake of threats by some in Washington, D.C. to support actions that would infringe upon the Second Amendment. Iowa’s Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties, so far, also include: Mitchell, Chickasaw, Pocahontas, Hardin, Carroll, Jasper, Cedar, Washington, Madison, Mills, Adams, Clarke, and Wayne.
