Texas county joins 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement, citing 'brutal attacks' on gun rights
from Houston Chronicle
Bill Applegate, who traps livestock predators in far West Texas, had never been involved in local politics before he learned about a grassroots, gun rights movement spreading in America. Now he was in the Presidio County courthouse trying to see the idea through. Applegate, 59, wanted to make this Democrat-dominated county a "Second Amendment sanctuary," a symbolic designation that riffs on "sanctuary cities," where local officials don't cooperate with immigration enforcement. He hoped the vote would send politicians a pointed message: Don't infringe on our right to bear arms.
