    I really like Collin county judge Chris Hill's take on the whole 2A sanctuary county question. The Second Amendment is certainly very important to me, but so is the Constitution as a whole. Government officials take an oath to uphold the Constitution, therefore there shouldn't really be a debate about upholding the 2nd Amendment. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a crime for being an oath breaker in today's society.

    So true. I think of this reality often.
    I guess until we return to being a Nation of Laws we will have to remind the oath takers that if they shirk the oath, they get voted OUT.

    Good to see more counties coming on board with the sanctuary movement. I live in Travis county... I'm not sure it will ever come on board - I'll probably have to move out to one of the surrounding counties at some point.

    Now there is a state reciprocity agreement on the move: https://ballotpedia.org/Multi-State_Reciprocity_Agreement

    Texas needs to get in on this IMHO

    Great. Maybe this will inspire Collin county where I am at which is right next to Fannin to do the same.

    Hope so too. Call your sheriff up and tell him to get on it

    From what I understand, Collin County is a Constitution Reaffirmation County. Meaning they support the Constitution as written.

    image.jpeg I am impressed by how many counties (as well as states) are declaring themselves 2A Sanctiaries.

    It's really growing, yall.

    That's called "full faith and credit" and is in the constitution too.

    I know Oregon has been talking about 5 round limits (for magazines) as well as an AWB. Good on those counties for saying “not here”.
