HANOVER, Va. (WWBT) - The Hanover County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution in support of the Second Amendment.
The resolution passed 5-1 and one person was absent.
The adopted resolution reads in part:
“… the Hanover County Board of Supervisors wishes to express opposition to any law that would unconstitutionally restrict the rights under the Second Amendment of the citizens of Hanover County to keep and bear arms…” The Board expressed its full intent to “stand in full support of the Constitution of the United States of America and the Commonwealth of Virginia and will oppose and challenge, to the full extent of the law, any and all efforts by any person, organization, or governing body to infringe on the rights guaranteed by these constitutions to its citizens, including the right to keep and bear arms as defined in the Second Amendment, and will accept no efforts to change or diminish these rights except through the amendment process as prescribed in said Constitution.”
Dozens of cities and counties around Virginia have passed Second Amendment measures.
The governor and attorney general have said those resolutions mean nothing legally because whatever laws are passed will still be enforced.
