Dozens of counties in Virginia have declared themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries” in recent weeks after Democrats won control of the state legislature last month.

CNN reported that Surrey and Craig counties were among the latest to pass resolutions this week in support of Second Amendment rights, joining more than 40 other counties across the state.

The article goes on to state the following:

The resolutions are not legally binding, CNN noted, and instead serve as declarations of support for citizens to exercise the right to carry weapons.

In a statement to CNN, Jonathan Lynn, county administrator and clerk of the Board of Surrey County, said, “The counties and gun groups are asking the jurisdictions and the commonwealth to support gun rights and their Second Amendment to make sure they [the state legislature] aren’t going to do anything to take that away.”
