In Illinois, Rep. Howard wants to create law prohibiting such anti-gun control declarations.
Her bill is HB 3553, the synopsis of which says:
[This bill] amends the Counties Code and the Illinois Municipal Code. Provides that a county or municipality may not pass an ordinance or resolution restricting enforcement of any State law or regulation concerning the ownership or use of firearms unless permitted to do so under the express provisions of the law or regulation.
HB 3553 is currently with the House Judiciary-Criminal Committee.
In New Mexico, 29 of 33 sheriffs stood with county governments in rejecting Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s (D) gun control. Grisham responded to the sheriffs by describing them as “a few” members of law enforcement who are “making noise.”
