Sarasota County Commissioner Ziegler proposes a resolution declaring Sarasota County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County

 

 

Christian Ziegler
I just submitted a proposed Resolution – declaring Sarasota County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County – for consideration by the Board of County Commissioners at our next meeting on November 19, 2019.

****************************

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution protects the individual right to keep and bear arms.[1][2][a] It was ratified on December 15, 1791 as part of the Bill of Rights.[3][4][5] 
In District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), the Supreme Court affirmed for the first time that the right belongs to individuals, for self-defense in the home,[6][7][8][9] while also including, as dicta, that the right is not unlimited and does not preclude the existence of certain long-standing prohibitions such as those forbidding “the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill” or restrictions on “the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons.”[10][11] State and local governments are limited to the same extent as the federal government from infringing upon this right.[12]
