In a typical Democrat’s reaction after failing to get their way around the constitution, a Democratic commissioner ripped a copy of the Second Amendment resolution minutes after its passing by Forsyth County in North Carolina. Commissioner Tonya McDaniel had to apologize by claiming that she allowed her anger to get the best of her.
Democratic commissioners had also tried to change the wording of the resolution by replacing the “Second Amendment” with the “Bill of Rights.” The county commissioners passed the Second Amendment resolution with a 4-3 majority in favor after defeating the Democratic-sponsored version that claimed to support the entire Bill of Rights with a similar margin. The Second Amendment opponents tried to block the voting on the resolution by using parliamentary procedures.
Republican Commissioner Gloria Whisenhunt said that although the Republican commissioners supported the entire constitution, it was important to reassure residents whose Second Amendment rights were under attack. “Some folks do not understand this fear,” Whisenhunt said, "but I share your concern for the Second Amendment."
The meeting attracted over 100 people from both sides of the gun control debate. Tensions were high with supporters of Second Amendment rights and proponents of gun control occupying different areas of the house. The two groups tried to keep one another out of each other's designated areas. Some opponents of the Second Amendment rights were wearing Moms Demand Action t-shirts.
Forsyth County is North Carolina’s most populous county. Passing the resolution is important in sending the message that residents are tired of infringement of their 2A rights. Davidson County in North Carolina has also passed a second amendment resolution which bars county employees from enforcing any gun control laws. The resolution also prevents the use of the county’s resources to enforce regulations that infringe on people’s rights to self-defense.
Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is pushing universal background checks in our state, and if left unchecked, it will not be long until we see bills like this getting traction in Austin. Texas is embarrassingly ranked 29th for gun rights, and with the help of the political elites in Austin, we will surely rank among New York, California, and Illinois if left to their own devices. Please join our fight today, and help us restore Texas' place as the standard for the U.S.
