The Effingham County Board has passed a resolution declaring the county as a “sanuctuary for gun owners”. Although the resolution may not have much legal standing, county board member David Campbell says it is more about standing up to the state of Illinois that he says is infringing on residents’ unalienable rights.
Campbell says it’s time action was taken to send a message to higher levels of government.
Campbell says many other Illinois counties have inquired about Effingham County’s resolution since it was passed.
Campbell says the county’s resolution was modeled after Iroquois County’s resolution that has already been approved as well.
