LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Citizens in Lynchburg can make their voices heard on whether to become a Second Amendment sanctuary.

The meeting hosted by the Lynchburg City Council will take place Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Chamber. The chamber is located in city hall at 900 Church Street.

Several cities and counties across Virginia have voted to become so-called Second Amendment sanctuaries. The actions come after Democrats won a majority in the both houses of the Virginia General Assembly for the first time in decades.

Speakers are required to sign up to speak before the meeting begins. The sign-up sheet will be available at 6 p.m. on Jan. 14 in the lobby of city hall. Anyone who speaks must provide their name, address, city/county of residence, and whether they are speaking as an individual or representing a group, a notice from the city said.
