IFC WELCOMES NEWS OF FREMONT COUNTY’S “SECOND AMENDMENT SANCTUARY” STATUS – 1/3rd OF IOWA NOW A 2A SANCTUARY
The Fremont County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution, unanimously, on Wednesday to make their community Iowa’s 33rd Second Amendment Sanctuary County.
“In only a matter of months, 1/3rd of Iowa’s counties have stood up and said ‘our rights are not up for negotiation’,” said Dave Funk, IFC President. “This is a historic day for the state of Iowa and it’s citizens and we look forward to the day when we can say the entire Hawkeye State is a Second Amendment Sanctuary.”
Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions at the county level do not supersede federal law but they do prevent local resources from being used to assist the federal government in efforts that violate the Second Amendment.
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, Page, Lucas, Taylor, Union, Hancock, Buena Vista, Pottawattamie, Cherokee, Montgomery, and Wayne.
The Iowa Firearms Coalition, an affiliate of the NRA and NSSF, is a 501(c4) nonprofit and is Iowa’s only effective pro-Second Amendment rights organization.
