Default Texas Dems vote in sanctuary county...

...for the 2nd amendment!

A Commissioners Court in Presidio County passed a resolution today declaring the county to be a “Second Amendment sanctuary.”

Three of the four Democratic commissioners that were present at the meeting today, along with the judge, voted unanimously to pass the resolution submitted by residents of the western border county.

The resolution, as read by the judge at the meeting, states:

“Be it resolved that the people of Presidio County…. hereby designate Presidio County a Second Amendment sanctuary in order to preserve for the people of, on, and in Presidio County their rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. Furthermore, any regulation that violates the Second, Ninth, Tenth, or Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America shall be regarded by the people of Presidio County to be unconstitutional and therefore by necessity unenforceable and invalid….We the people of Presidio County through this resolution hereby declare our rights, our freedom, and our liberty as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America.”

Although Presidio County has a small population—just a little over 7,000—about 70 residents showed up at the meeting today in support of the resolution.

This guy said it best, though:
Pro-gun Democrats actually do exist and run for office.

Of course, since Presidio County is located on the border, they may have a slightly different perspective on guns because of that. After all, the Mexican drug cartels often export their violence to the regions along the border. Even if Presidio County hasn’t been affected, I doubt it’s been far from people’s minds. Knowing that, it’s entirely possible that they recognize the need to defend themselves from cartel thugs.

That’s just my own speculation, though.

Any person who passes muster can buy a machine gun, all it takes is a load of money and about a year.
