Lake County commissioners say their county is now a “Second Amendment sanctuary.”
The commission approved a resolution that the federal government “cannot compel law enforcement officers of the states to enforce federal laws as it would increase the power of the federal government far beyond that which the Constitution intended.”
Gun control advocates shrugged off the measure, saying the move was meaningless. But Lake County Commissioner Josh Blake said several counties across the nation are passing similar resolutions. According to commissioners, Lake County is the first to do so in Florida.
