From The Columbia Daily Herald:
 

Maury County’s avid proponents of the Second Amendment stood before their commissioners this week, calling on them to oppose any laws that would restrict a citizen’s right to bear arms.

In return, the county’s safety committee unanimously approved a resolution to become a Second Amendment sanctuary that would not enforce regulations placed on it by the state or federal governments. The commission will vote to formally pass the resolution later this month following the resolution’s unanimous approval by the committee.

If the resolution is passed, Maury County would become one of the hundreds of municipalities across the nation that are taking a similar stand.
