McCracken County has joined 113 other counties in Kentucky in becoming a Second Amendment Sanctuary. But Judge-Executive Craig Clymer said the resolution was unneeded “It’s superfluous and unnecessary for a county government to adopt or validate or enforce or state that we’re going to follow what we have to follow. If you feel like the itch needs to be scratched… do it. I’m not going to vote against it.” The resolution is part of a national trend of local governments to stake out their position supporting the Second Amendment. Saber-rattling by Pres. Biden and Democrats in Congress promising to restrict guns has largely prompted the resolutions, and any attempted restrictions on law-abiding gun-owning citizens is being resisted by Kentucky’s elected officials. Attorney General Daniel Cameron issued a legal opinion stating such resolutions would not violate state law.
