Kevin, great job continues with the map but I think "attourney" as spelled is more of an obsolete old English spelling.

It seems like there's some unrest in the county that started this all. The police seem to be breaking ranks to out their chief.

I did not see anything in the articles that said there was disagreement in the department about 2A sanctuary status.  Am I missing something?

I posted it because the "other side" will try to use this in any way they can against the sanctuary counties, since that's the county it all started in. Especially because the Effingham police chief was so vocal in supporting the sanctuary county movement.

I see it as a "sanctuary county" related issue and thought others might like to know about it.

The Effingham CITY POLICE CHIEF is apparently not well liked by some of his staff.

 

The Effingham COUNTY SHERIFF has been an outspoken advocate of 2nd amendment.

To my understanding the police chief has also been a supporter of the sanctuary county movement starting in Effingham.

Any evidence to the contrary?

Sure wish Kankakee county would get this done. Went to the first county meeting and haven't heard anything since.

Tonight, Gun Rights Watch received word that O'Fallon Township in St. Clair County voted and became a 2A Sanctuary Township this afternoon.

The Crawford County State's Attorney publicly announced a few weeks ago that he would not prosecute violations of SB 107 if enacted because the bill violates the Second Amendment.  It was on the local radio station and newspaper in Robinson, Illinois.

It seems that there are 2 sets downstate Illinois politicians. One follows the will of the people and the Constitution; the other set goes to Springfield and votes lockstep with the Chicago machine.

We just heard from two residents of Warren County in the past couple of days, who told us that the county has a 2A resolution vote scheduled for their meeting in September.

How many counties is this at this point? 64? Plus, how many townships in ones that haven't declared as sanctuary counties have passed some sort of 2nd Amendment sanctuary resolution? Is there an official count?

That's even better! More than 3/5 of the state, not to mention an even dozen SAs who won't prosecute for specious violations of SB107. Ideally, the overwhelming majority of the state does the same, to offset the the Chicago area and northern IL anti-firearm contingent.

The dozen state's attorney who have publicly come out for nullification are just the tip of the iceberg. Twice that many have indicated agreement privately.

If they would come out publicly, that would be even better, because it would add momentum and weight to the whole legal aspect of it. If eventually a large majority of SAs tell the State that they aren't going to enforce unconstitutional laws, and stick to their guns if push comes to shove, then it would be a game-changer.
