Three more counties have declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties. San Juan, Lincoln and Eddy Counties have all adopted the resolutions, Tuesday.
At the San Juan County meeting, hundreds of people filled the room. These counties now join Quay, Curry, Union and Socorro Counties who pledge not to enforce certain new gun laws if they pass the state legislature.
The New Mexico Sheriff’s Association has been vocal against the gun bills, including one that would require background checks on all gun sales. It says the laws would be unenforceable and punish law-abiding citizens.
Other counties are also considering taking up the measure.
