Bay County Commission voting today:

6. Resolution Supporting Second Amendment Rights

Recommendation:

Board to adopt the attached resolution which: 1) supports the right to bear arms and declares Bay County to be a "Second Amendment Sanctuary"; and 2) revises Bay County's

Workplace Violence Policy to permit employees to carry a concealed weapon or firearm where permitted by law.

BACKGROUND:

An individual's right to possess a firearm is protected by the United States Constitution and the Florida Constitution. This resolution reaffirms the Commission's support for those constitutional rights.

The designation of Bay County as a "Second Amendment Sanctuary" would demonstrate the commitment of the Board to protect the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and to oppose efforts to infringe on this right.


The resolution also modifies the County's Workplace Violence Policy, which currently prohibits employees from carrying a firearm while on County property. The revised policy provides that any person who is legally permitted to carry a concealed weapon or firearm under applicable law is allowed to do so on County property, to the maximum extent permitted by law. State law still prohibits open carry of a handgun or concealed carry of any weapon or firearm at any meeting of the governing body of a local government.

Staff recommends the Board adopt the attached Resolution Supporting Second Amendment Rights. See Exhibit 1.

@Miami_JBT

You can add Bay County to the list.

At Wednesday’s Bay County commission meeting, commissioners took multiple actions in light of the Second Amendment. Commissioners declared Bay County a ‘Second Amendment Sanctuary.’

This allows the board to protect Second Amendment rights and to oppose any efforts to violate these rights.

Didn't Desoto County just pass this?

Make sure these counties are really checked before putting them on the map. Polk County just voted to be a 2A sanctuary, but do not act too quickly to add them.

https://www.theledger.com/news/20200121/polk-declares-itself-2nd-amendment-sanctuary

The Polk County Commission on Tuesday reversed course from its Friday meeting and approved a resolution affirming its support for gun rights, including language declaring the county a sanctuary.
