"Monday night, our board voted unanimously in support of the resolution, reaffirming our commitment to the Constitution, and specifically to the Second Amendment," Thomas told The Florida Report. "I hope this will help encourage other elected officials to do the same. Citizens should never have to wonder where we stand. The Second Amendment is under constant attack. We all need to remain unwavering in its defense!"
Wakulla's commitment to preserving citizens' God-given rights comes days after Lake County became the first county to pass the resolution. That proposal was spearheaded by Commissioner Josh Blake, and the commission voted 4-0 to pass the resolution on Nov. 5.
With two counties passing the resolution, other elected officials across the state said they also plan on protecting the Second Amendment in their regions.
I’m proposing the Second Amendment Sanctuary resolution passed by Lake county in the Clay County Commission meeting Tuesday the 26th of November," Gavin Rollins, a Clay County Commissioner said. "This resolution is about letting our citizens know we have their back when it comes to standing up for the Second Amendment. Our county employees are already able to conceal carry on the job a change we made a while back and this is one more way we are standing up for citizens right to bears arms and defend themselves."
Following Lake County's leadership, more and more counties in Florida are fighting back to preserve people's Second Amendment rights. Sarasota County, which issued a similar solution last week, will look to take a vote on the issue later today.
"I am excited to bring up the Second Amendment Sanctuary County Resolution because you usually only hear from Second Amendment supporters reactively on defense, rather than pro-actively on offense," Sarasota County Commissioner Christian Ziegler told Fox News. "With our Second Amendment rights, guaranteed to us by our Constitution, under attack at all levels of government, I believe it is important for the Sarasota County Commission to make it clear -- to the citizens we represent -- where their local government stands on this issue."
