OUTSTANDING: West Virginia County Becomes Second Amendment Sanctuary


Jefferson County, West Virginia, is now a Second Amendment Sanctuary.

The resolution passed with an overwhelming 4-0 vote on Thursday evening.

“Yesterday, I made a post letting the citizens of Jefferson County know that a resolution will be brought to the table to vote in favor of Jefferson County becoming a Second Amendment Sanctuary county for law abiding citizens,” Jefferson County Commissioner Tricia Jackson wrote on Facebook. “I am pleased to announce that the resolution passed overwhelmingly at 4-0. Commissioner Tabb abstained from voting.”

The evening before the vote, Jackson wrote “as your county commissioner, I recognize the second amendment and fully support it. I will use my full due diligence to protect your God given rights.”

  1. It looks like I’ll have to move to west Virginia to maintain my God given rights. Unless I can get my county to do the same as they did. You Go guys !!!

    1. Every single patriotic, legal American citizen in the United States of America should forward this to their respective counties commissioners with the message that those commissioners will be voted out if they do not follow suit.

    1. Movie. Senior all I want is your guns. Come take them. Disarm the public and we will know and do what is good for you. People have backed up enough they are against the wall. We are not relinquishing any more of our protected rights. Gov workers sit on their butts in Washington and collect thousands of your dollars doing nothing for your benefit. I

  2. It is starting to look like W. Virginia is getting to be the state to move to for freedom loving Americans who are NOT Communist Democrats or TRAITOR Republicans!!! Seems like most all big business, Chamber of Commerce, wall street, fake media social media are all Communists that want to be Commie China! Biden and the Democrats are very very dangerous to the free and peace loving people of America!!

  3. Now we just need them to start a trend on declaring any law that IS NOT DIRECTLY ENUMERATED BY THE CONSTITUTION is unlawful and any attempted enforcement UNDER COLOR OF LAW is a FELONY and a MINIMUM of 5 years in Prison without parole or Pardon.

    The COUNTY is closest to the VOTER, thus superior to the State which HAS ALWAYS BEEN Superior to the Feds except for the Enumerated Powers.

    The Enumerated Powers wording has been Bastardized by politicians to make them say what they want to INCREASE GOVERNMENT POWER.

    THAT IS TREASON, and the Counties should start looking at ALL REGULATORY agencies in that light.

  4. 2nd amendment rights are what keeps us from absolute tyranny! If you give in to the insanity that is coming from the left and it’s lunatic leaders Biden Harris and company you have nobody to blame – simply get in line and goosestep your way to a future where you have two choices: kiss the asses of the tyrants or suffer their rath. Protecting your god given right to defend yourself your family your property and your freedom of speech is up to you.

  5. It’s time for all Cities, and States to stand up against the tyrannical Democrats and support our Constitutional rights.

  6. Columbia county in Oregon voted to become a second amendment sanctuary county. We got enough people to put it on the ballot and voted it in 2020 election.

    1. Congratulations! Now if we can get all the other states to become sanctuary states from the federal government we will be walking in tall cotton. Big government has gotten too big for their britches.

  7. Way to go WV. Wish SC would do that. Biden and Harris are a joke, liars and I do not acknowledge them as pres or vp. Most dems should be deported or dissappear now.

    1. Stephen M Milkereit ….. Has stated it – “PERFECTLY” ….. Way to Go – Sir.!!! So Glad that there are A LOT of People Out There – Still – In This Country That Are Seeing Things the Way They Should….. Hope All the People, who Voted for that Dumb Biden and Harris into Office will get Their Lunch – Eventually.!!!!! They are the Dumb Ones, who are bringing down this Country.

  8. West Virginia seems to be a little behind in the 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement.
    96% of Virginia’s County, Cities and Towns all became 2nd Sanctuaries 2 years ago, along with several other States. WV has some catching up to do.

  9. Does any one have a list of the SANTUARY COUNTIES OR STATES?
    The government does but they won’t release it.
    Hopefully one of them is warm. I live in Ohio, born and raised in PA, 5 Miles from WVA border.
    Had my first Rifle at 14 became a good shooter. In Military fire Expert on all Weapons.
    That has been a family tradition since we came from Soviet Block Countries.
    None of the Hundreds of Relatives all Friends with Weapons have ever committed a crime with a weapon. Followed all State Regulation.


  10. 91 of 95 Virginia counties (~96%) have adopted 2nd Amendment Sanctuary — brought about by the anti-gunners’ take over of the state legislature. Am hoping West Virginia will end up beating that percentage!

    1. Article says: “3 cities and 3 towns have adopted Second Amendment sanctuary”
      What are the three cities? And like Steve B says I also was raised with firearms, first as a youngster in Dallas, then joined the military where I shot the M1 and the 1911 45. Then after the military joined three police departments where I qualified on the great S&W Mod 10 (a super accurate gun) Now proficient in the Glack 17. Hey, I may not be able to fight (I’m old, lol) but I can still shoot.

  11. Second Amendment to the United States Constitution
    Text of the 2nd Amendment
    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
    The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the right to keep and bear arms. It was ratified on December 15, 1791, along with nine other articles of the Bill of Rights. In McDonald v. City of Chicago the Supreme Court ruled that state and local governments are limited to the same extent as the federal government from “infringing” upon this right. Under the current “Socialist” administration steps are underway to “Disarm America”. History is full of examples of governments disarming their citizens with the promise that they will be protected by the state only to be brutally betrayed. What follows is a litany of blood that has not been taught in American high schools in nearly one hundred years.
    1911: Turkey; citizens disarmed – 1.5 million Armenians were slaughtered
    1929: Russia; citizens disarmed – 20 million Russians murdered
    1935: China; citizens disarmed – 20 million Chinese killed
    1938: Germany; citizens disarmed – 6 million Jews murdered
    1956: Cambodia; citizens disarmed – 1 million “intellectuals” killed
    1964: Guatemala; citizens disarmed – 100,000 Mayan Indians massacred
    1970: Uganda; citizens disarmed – 300,000 Christians put to death
    Will America succumb to the fate as did these countries? Our “Government” is becoming our worst nightmare. Disarming American Citizens will pave the way for total Tyranny. Thomas Jefferson is quoted as saying, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure”. Thomas Paine wrote, “It is the duty of every patriot to protect his country from its government.” Patriots across America have taken an oath to defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic. To my knowledge, this oath has never been rescinded. I believe in God and Country. I will die on my feet fighting against Tyranny than live on my knees under the control of a “Tyrannical Government”! America Love It or Leave It!

    1. What I’d like to know is, does anti-gun legislation also include criminals? Or are they exempt? In other words, I’ll turn in my small arsenal, but only if all criminals do the same, and to that, I just say ok let me hold my breath.

  12. I’ll be sharing this article with all of my federal, state and local representatives and encourage them to do likewise if they want to continue to get our support. I encourage all readers to do the same.

  13. GOOD FOR ….. Jefferson County, West Virginia …. At Least There are Some Super People still in this Country that know that Our 2nd. Amendment – belongs to “We the People”. I sure hope every County in every State of this Country…..Do as Jefferson County, West Virginia has done….. Again, Good for Them.!!! My Hat is Off to Them for
    doing something to combat the Ridiculous Garbage that Biden and his Miserable Democratic Cronies are trying to push with “OUR”…..2nd. Amendment Rights….under the U.S. Constitution.!!! Most of the Good, True, and Faithful Americans…..ARE NOT GOING TO PUT UP WITH BIDEN’S …. DUMB A * * …. AGENDA OR HIS STUPID BELIEFS…….

  14. Nope not a 2nd amendment county. They still follow federal rules that deny people that are allowed to own guns from buying them. This is just a catch frazee to make some people feel good. I am allowed to buy guns in my home state, but when I find a pistol I’ve been looking for their, they will not sell it to me. So much for the second amendment.
