North Carolina County Declares Itself America’s First ‘Gun Sanctuary’

A small county in North Carolina has passed and ratified one of the country’s first gun sanctuary resolutions. Cherokee County has ruled that it will “not authorize or appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies, contractors, buildings, detention centers or offices for the purpose of enforcing or assisting in the enforcement of any element of such acts, laws, orders, mandates, rules or regulations, that infringe on the right by the people to keep and bear arms.” Associated Press says that the county’s decision “bears some similarities to the concept of sanctuary cities refusing to enforce federal immigration policies.”
