Committee Moves 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Measure to County Board

KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)—Should Kenosha County become a “Second Amendment Sanctuary?” That question may be on a future ballot if the County Board agrees.
A resolution adding that ballot measure passed on a four to three vote on the county’s Legislative Committee this week after that same committee refused to adopt a similar resolution outright.
The purpose of the county being declared a second amendment sanctuary is a bit murky. It could allow the sheriff the discretion to not enforce laws deemed unconstitutional relating to firearms.
As to who would pass-and then declare those laws unconstitutional-isn’t clear. Most counties in Wisconsin are at least considering a similar measure, but only nine have passed it.
