Callahan County becomes Second Amendment Sanctuary County

Callahan County is now a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.

Commissioners voted unanimously at Monday's meeting to "designate Callahan County as a Second Amendment Sanctuary County."

The County said it first reviewed a resolution passed by Stephens County which says commissioners support any decisions made by the Sheriff "to not enforce any unconstitutional firearms restrictions against any citizen."

Commissioners then consulted with the County Attorney.

The resolution will be "read into the record at the Commissioners' Court meeting on Dec. 9."

Eastland County also passed a Second Amendment Sanctuary County resolution on Monday.

There are now five Second Amendment sanctuary counties in the Big Country -- Callahan, Eastland, Mitchell, Stephens and Throckmorton.

At least 11 other counties in Texas have done the same, including Edwards, Ellis, Hood, Hudspeth, Kaufman, Palo Pinto, Parker, Presidio, Smith, Upshur and Wood.

Second Amendment counties became more popular after former Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O'Rourke -- from El Paso -- threatened to confiscate assault style weapons if elected.
