Gun Group Wants Oconee County to Be ‘Second Amendment Sanctuary’

Ryan Anglin.

The Oconee County Gun Coalition is making plans to ask the Oconee County Board of Commissioners to pass a resolution declaring the county a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.

If the Board of Commissioners were to approve the resolution, the county would join at least 21 other counties in the state in supporting decisions by the sheriff “to not enforce any unconstitutional firearm restrictions.”

The resolution also calls on the commissioners to agree not to use government funds or resources to enforce any law “that unconstitutionally infringes on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.”

Ryan Anglin, representing the Oconee County Gun Coalition, announced his plans as a featured speaker at the Oconee County Republic Party meeting Monday night.

Anglin did not have a timeline for when he planned to introduce his resolution to the Board of Commissioners, three of whom were in the standing-room only crowd at the Oconee County Chamber Of Commerce auditorium in Watkinsville.

Oconee County Republicans also heard Carolyn Fisher, first vice president of the state Republican Party, call for party civility, referencing the contest between incumbent U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler and challenger Doug Collins in the special election scheduled for November.

Candidates James Hale and Jimmy Williamson, both seeking to replace retiring Sheriff Scott Berry, also made pitches for support in the May 19 Republican Party Primary.
