IFC WELCOMES NEWS OF PAGE COUNTY’S “SECOND AMENDMENT SANCTUARY” STATUS
The Page County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution on Tuesday to make their county Iowa’s 24th Second Amendment Sanctuary.
“At this point, it’s become a job, in the greatest sense of the word, to keep track of how many communities are affirming their Second Amendment rights,” said Dave Funk, IFC President. “We would like to thank the Page County Board of Supervisors for taking this important step in the fight against federal encroachment.”
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, Humboldt, Kossuth, Ringgold, Buchanan, Van Buren, Winnebago, Decatur, Dallas, Guthrie, Benton and Wayne.
The Iowa Firearms Coalition, an affiliate of the NRA, is a 501(c4) nonprofit and Iowa’s only effective gun rights organization.
We are nearing 25% of Iowa’s counties being 2nd Amendment Sanctuaries. Senator Zach Nunn has also introduced a bill to make all of Iowa a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary.
