COVINGTON, Ky. — Kenton County is joining others in the state declaring themselves as a so-called “Sanctuary County” for arms.
The resolution is called the Second Amendment sanctuary.
According to the Kenton County Sheriff Charles Korzenborn, the resolution states the county upholds the Second Amendment in the U.S. Constitution with its rights to keep and bear arms.
He says it opposes any law that would unconstitutionally restrict that right.
“This reiterates the statements that I’ve been making ever since I was old enough to think about politics. It doesn’t change anything but it sends up a flag to anybody considering violating the constitutional rights that I will do something about it,” Korzenborn said.
Boone County is set to vote on a similar resolution on Tuesday.
