Davidson County in North Carolina unanimously voted last night to become a “sanctuary” for the Second Amendment and a haven from unconstitutional gun laws.
The county Board of Commissioners “heard from 20 members of a standing-room-only crowd of more than 150 during a 30-minute public-comment period,” reported the Winston-Salem Journal. “Every person who spoke did so in favor of the proposed Second Amendment protection resolution.”
Davidson County Sheriff’s Deputy Tripp Kester was one of the individuals to speak to the crowd, referencing Americans’ “God-given” rights and vowing to “never enforce an “unconstitutional law.”

“I just wanna personally and publicly go on record supporting this resolution,” started Kester.
“Governments were instituted among men, specifically, to secure our God given rights,” Kester noted. “And it says when government becomes destructive to these ends … it’s the right of the people to alter or abolish that government, either by voting or, ultimately, God forbid, to use our Second Amended rights to protect ourselves from tyranny.”
“I took an oath,” the deputy said, and I “swore that I’d give my life to defend that Constitution.”
“I’m not trying to be disrespectful, but regardless of what you guys do or don’t do, I’m not gonna enforce an unconstitutional law,” he added, sparking thunderous applause.
