You’ve heard about sanctuary cities—usually larger cities that have passed laws saying they won’t work with federal authorities to deport illegal immigrants. Now there’s a move to protect Second Amendment rights in conservative communities. Call them Second Amendment sanctuary communities. Dozens of Virginia counties are passing Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions in anticipation of strict gun control measures. This is because the Virginia General Assembly is held by a Democratic majority—a majority that has the willpower and votes to impose restrictions on certain firearms purchases.  Altogether, 41 counties in Virginia have passed similar resolutions. The resolutions are more a declaration of intent, saying that if the state enacts expansive new gun control laws, local authorities won’t necessarily help them to enforce state restrictions.
