Yavapai County Board Of Supervisors Tables 2A Proclamation After Public Says It Didn’t Go Far Enough

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors decided to table a proclamation in support of the Second Amendment, after public outcry that the resolution didn’t go far enough. Hundreds packed the Board of Supervisors chambers Thursday in Prescott, to voice their opinion on the matter. The meeting lasted about three hours, with those who wanted to speak given two minutes each to do so. The proclamation says the county supports the Second Amendment and left it pretty general. A member of Congressman Paul Gosar’s staff read a statement from Gosar, saying he would like to see the proclamation be stronger worded and focus on “red flag” laws. Those laws are being considered in a few states, including Arizona. Some want the county to become a “Sanctuary County” for gun rights, much like Mohave County did in 2019. The Board of Supervisors is expected to discuss the proclamation in executive session on January 15th and could bring it back to the public in their meeting on February 2nd.
