A quarter of Illinois’ county governments have passed resolutions declaring their county a “gun sanctuary,” including those in Brown and Greene counties.
The resolutions come in response to cities and counties that have declared themselves “sanctuary cities” and urge local law enforcement not to comply with federal immigration law. Gun sanctuary resolutions urge law enforcement not to act on federal gun control laws.
Mark Strang, the Greene County board’s vice chairman, said the symbolic nature of the resolution is in defiance of counties that see fit not to follow the law.
“The same politicians that overlook those (immigration) laws are the same ones trying to impose gun laws in the state of Illinois,” Strang said. “We’re saying that if you’re not going to enforce rules regarding immigration, we’ll just have our own gun control laws.”
