EFFINGHAM COUNTY - Firearms owners in Illinois are not taking sitting down all the General Assembly's efforts to squelch their unalienable right to bear arms. Taking advantage of local control, gun owners are taking the route of passing countywide resolutions to make stands protecting their rights.

The movement, first started with Effingham County Board member David Campbell's resolution to make his county a sanctuary county, protecting gun owners from the law enforcing unconstitutional gun laws. Effingham County's state's attorney joined onto Campbell's effort, as did others in neighboring counties. Thus far, over 70 of the state's 103 counties have passed the first resolution.

Now the group is working with counties throughout the state to pass resolutions calling on the state legislature to "VOID the FOID" card. Between 30 and 40 counties have passed that measure at the county level.

What's going on in these counties is not going unnoticed by the Illinois legislature.

"With all the emails, phone calls, and the resolutions, an effort to toughen gun control laws was stopped in the Illinois Senate," David Campbell of Effingham County Board said in an interview with the NRA. "The movement is growing, he said. "Last night, Schulyer County passed the 'VOID the FOID' resolution."

Mr. Campbell had more good news to share with Illinois Review Tuesday....

The Sanctuary City concept has hit California.

Needles City Council formalizes Second Amendment Sanctuary City declaration
NEEDLES — The city council inspired serious and apparently wide-spread discussion with consideration of declaring Needles to be a Second Amendment Sanctuary City during its regular meeting of June 11.

The request to do so was brought by Councilor Timothy Terral. It received several supportive comments by people in the audience from both sides of the river, and prompted unanimous action by the council to make the declaration and prepare a resolution to formalize it, as well as forming an ad hoc committee to study the issue and set forth requested changes in California gun laws and policy.

The committee, working with the city’s attorneys, brought the document to council July 9.

Included are 21 “whereas” statements with citations including the 1791 Bill of Rights; Supreme Court cases of 2008 affirming an individual right to possess firearms unconnected with service in a militia (District of Columbia v. Heller) and 2010 affirming the right of an individual to keep and bear and arms is protected under the Second Amendment and is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to apply also to states (McDonald v. Chicago); a quotation from Article 1, Section 1 of the California Constitution: “All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness and privacy.”

Boiled down the resolution orders:

• Needles is declared to be a Second Amendment Sanctuary City.

• The city council “affirms its support for the San Bernardino County Sheriff in his exercise of sound discretion to not enforce against any person an unconstitutional firearms and ammunitions law within the city.” Note: This represents a change from the original wording of the agenda item, which concluded “and to demonstrate lenience to concealed carry permit holders from other states while in the city.” The sheriff’s department will continue to enforce California firearms laws as currently written. See attached statement from Sheriff John McMahon.

• The city won’t appropriate funds to enforce laws that unconstitutionally infringe upon the right … to keep and bear arms.
