Lincoln County approves 2nd Amendment sanctuary status

Lincoln County commissioners voted 4-1 Tuesday to approve a resolution to become a 2nd Amendment sanctuary county in reaction to proposed state gun legislation.

Commissioner Elaine Allen cast the lone nay vote, saying while she concurred with many of the comments from the audience, she did not support the idea of a sanctuary status.

Commissioner Lynn Willard also expressed reservations, but voted with the majority.

Commissioner Tom Stewart offered amended language to include the "lack of common sense" in the legislative process and adding that the county will pursue litigation, if necessary.

Lincoln County Sheriff Robert Shepperd and other sheriffs across the state contend that some provisions in the proposed laws are unconstitutional.
