(Tea Party 247) – Democrat and aspiring gun grabber, Andy Beshar is currently the occupant of the Kentucky governor’s office, something which has prompted several counties in the state to declare themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that the counties of Cumberland, Harlan, Leslie, and Letcher Counties among others are making sure to signal to Frankfort that they have no interest in enforcing the unconstitutional gun legislation that Beshear and the federal government may attempt to enforce.
In a rousing speech by David Johnson at the Letcher County declaration, the ardent second amendment advocate declared:
Tonight, I feel that we the people of Letcher County, and not just Letcher County but the state of Kentucky, and not just the state of Kentucky but of these United States of America, can stand up as law abiding citizens and proclaim that we are constitutional to the bitter end.
Last month, Breitbart News reported that 86 of the 95 counties in the Commonwealth of Virginia had declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuary cities as well. The 86 counties are standing up together in a united front against the Democrats, led by Governor Ralph Northam (D) and the Democrats in the state legislature who seek to strip their citizens of their Second Amendment rights.
One of Northam’s primary desires is to force AR-15 owners to either register their rifles with the government or to surrender them.
Now what do you think a bunch of God-fearing, country-loving Southern patriots going to do when faced with this horrific choice, that no American should ever have to make.
Walter E. Williams, an economics professor at George Mason Unviersity, responded to Northam’s insistence by warning Virginians not to be fooled by “a registration trick.”
Williams replied, “Knowing who owns what weapons is the first step to confiscation.”
These Democrats are playing a dangerous game, one they absolutely do not want to be playing.
This is exactly why our founding fathers gave us the right to bear arms, to defend against tyranny.
Because you can’t disarm lawful citizens without complete and utter tyranny.
