DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – Danville’s City Council voted Tuesday night to “support the constitution” and not become a second amendment sanctuary.
Those were the words from Mayor Alonzo Jones.
“We are all in this together and you heard it from City Council tonight. We support the constitution. The wording may not be what you want it to be, but your mayor has a concealed weapons permit and I have weapons. It’s no secret.”Danville Mayor Alonzo Jones
City Council also voted down a proposal to become a constitutional city.
Localities started declaring themselves “second amendment sanctuaries” starting last summer, but the move has increased rapidly after Virginia Democrats took control of the General Assembly.
