I could be wrong, but I think after the last election where resolutions were on the ballot, the overall effort/volume has decreased so I would not expect a lot of updates. Maybe closer to the next election when more resolutions might be presented to voter. Most recent maps I am aware of are in the post above.

All of those maps seem to only go up to about August of last year.
 
Is there a regularly updated map, as well as a list of the counties and other municipalities, anywhere?
 
If not, maybe a sticky should be put up with that in it, in the original posting, for quick and complete reference.


I am not keeping track of municipalities as county Sheriffs and County Attorney hold more power than that of a city or township.

Anytime I hear about a county passing a sanctuary county measure I will update the map.

Has been since august or so since I have heard anything.

Post hear if you have an update, once I verify then I will update the map.

Do we know of any other county referendums this election? There were 20 or so passed in 2018 election but the one above is the only 2020 one I have heard of.

I do hope, in all sincerity, that everyone realizes that there is NO SUCH THING as a firearm sanctuary county.

 

The ATF does not care, and will arrest you.

 

The ISP does not care, and will arrest you.

 

the States Attorney, who is an elected employee of the state, may or may not care, but then the ATF still doesn't.

The various statements by states attorneys, the referenda, and the resolutions county boards, cited in this thread have dealt with state firearm laws potentially passed by the Illinois General Assembly. 

The ATF would not have any jurisdiction in the laws in question, unless the state law and federal law overlap.

I seem to recall a simlilar thing when the law banning carry was struck and the state ordered to enact carry. The Madison county prosecutor said he would not prosecute anyone found carrying until such time as the carry law was written. Thereby giving constitutional carry for a period of time in Madison county. Im sure other counties announced the same at the time.

 

Not sure if there were any arrests or not to see if they stuck to their word.

Fine work Kevin - as always!!

Are there any motivated activists in the non sanctuary counties who want to take up the cause? If so, shoot a PM and we'll get you started.

This might be worth its own thread, but Effingham is kicking butt with this one:

"You know, there are some words I've known since I was a schoolboy: 'With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured...the first thought forbidden...the first freedom denied--chains us all irrevocably.' Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie, as wisdom...and warning. The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged..." - Capt. Jean-Luc Picard

Here is the other thread.

It is only on the agenda, not passed legislation.
