CHARLOTTESVILLE, V.A. (WVIR) - It was a packed house at Tuesday night's Greene County Board of Supervisors meeting. Hundreds of gun rights activists turned out hoping to encourage county leaders to pass a resolution to become a Second Amendment sanctuary.
The move comes after Democrats are set to have the majority in the General Assembly and could enact new guns. Citizens of Greene County say this is about protecting their gun rights.
“I’ve lived in Greene County for over 45 years and not once in 45 years have my guns ever jumped out and shot anybody,” Carolyn Feazell, a gun-rights activist, said.
On Tuesday night, supervisors in Greene discussed whether it should become the next locality to declare itself as a Second Amendment sanctuary. The move comes after this month’s elections that put Democrats in control of the statehouse.
