STORM LAKE, Iowa – The Buena Vista County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution on Tuesday making the county Iowa’s 29th Second Amendment sanctuary county.
The Buena Vista County is the third county to approve such a resolution in December. County supervisors in Union and Hancock counties also voted to make their county a Second Amendment sanctuary.
“Momentum is on the side of freedom and liberty and we are optimistic our lawmakers in Des Moines will soon take the steps necessary to make all of the Hawkeye state a Second Amendment Sanctuary,” Iowa Firearms Coalition President Dave Funk said in a released statement.
Iowa Firearms Coalition has worked with state and local elected officials to protect the right of Iowans to keep and bear arms in the wake of threats by some in Washington, D.C., to support actions they believe would infringe upon the Second Amendment.
Iowa’s Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties, so far, also include Mitchell, Chickasaw, Pocahontas, Hardin, Carroll, Jasper, Cedar, Washington, Madison, Mills, Adams, Clarke, Humboldt, Kossuth, Ringgold, Buchanan, Van Buren, Winnebago, Decatur, Dallas, Guthrie, Benton, Page, Lucas, Taylor, Union, Hancock, and Wayne.
The Iowa Firearms Coalition, an affiliate of the NRA, is a 501(c4) nonprofit.
