McDowell County becomes 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County

MCDOWELL COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – McDowell County has joined other counties by becoming a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County.

In a meeting last week, county commissioners approved the measure.  Becoming a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary is to prohibit or impede the enforcement of certain gun control measures that some say violate their 2nd Amendment.

McDowell County joins Fayette, Nicholas, Cabell, Logan, Putnam, Preston, and Wirt Counties in West Virginia.
