To the Board of Supervisors – I have been following the political battle in our state of Virginia. The current push for legislative actions against gun owners, constituents of yours, that are in imminent danger of losing our property, infringement of not only our rights to bear arms, but or private property and most importantly our freedom.
I am writing you to ask that you put on your agenda a discussion on becoming a 2nd Amendment sanctuary county, which would involve not supporting any law passed on state level that cannot be upheld when challenged against the Constitution.
There have been a few states that have implemented red flag laws and magazine capacity limits. I would like to bring to your attention that none of these laws, with a good lawyer, have made it to court. The cases have been dropped because the laws cannot be upheld.
These are only some of the reasons I ask to uphold the 2nd Amendment of our precious American Constitution, as well as the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia. The erosion of rights and guarantee of our freedoms is a slippery slope that will only end in the end of the American dream and downfall of our society.
I request that you support a resolution for Loudoun County to become a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County and send a clear message to the legislature in Richmond that Loudoun County stands for freedom and citizen rights.
