Houston Chronicle Presidio County 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Article

I missed this meeting, but was aware of the agenda item.

As a gun owner and someone who used to hunt and always has loved to shoot target practice and skeet I support the right to own guns. I disagree with assault weapons as a whole in civilian hands, but the horse is out of the barn. I believe in universal background checks and red flag laws. I think the NRA is a shill organization for the gun manufacturers and is also a corrupted organization, internally, partially due to that fact.

To me, I think that the item is toothless, but it does send a message.

That being said, is this really an item that should be on a commissioners court agenda? I don't think so, as it is not pertinent to County affairs.

Lastly, does using the same approach as the Sanctuary Cities movement/rhetoric but renamed as 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Counties movement/rhetoric thereby legitimize, in a way, the Sanctuary Cities movement as legitimate? It's an interesting and somewhat ironic approach...
