CRAIG COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Craig County has joined the growing list of localities to approve a second amendment sanctuary resolution.
Dan Collins, Craig County Administrator, said the Craig County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 in favor of the resolution.
There are 43 localities who have adopted resolutions in the Commonwealth, according to Virginia Citizens Defense League.
Counties throughout the Commonwealth held public hearings, characterized by speakers expressing concern about their second amendment rights.
No previous public hearing was held about the resolution, Collins said.
The support in the community was evident with residents requesting copies of the resolution this week, the administrator said.
Collins said the resolution was put together by looking at sample resolutions from other localities, including Botetourt, and Prince Edwards Counties.
