Ellis County, Texas Joins the 2A Sanctuary Movement

Waxahachie, TX – Ellis County, Texas, joined the second amendment sanctuary movement on Tuesday this week (as did two other counties, one of which is in Florida). According to the Ellis County website,  it is another Texas County to declare itself a Second Amendment Sanctuary. Which is making it increasingly difficult for liberals to turn Texas blue in its entirety. ( The others are Edwards, Hudspeth, Presidio, Mitchell, Hood, Smith and Parker County). They must be vigilant, however, look what happened in Virginia.

In July, Ellis County commissioners actually removed the rule that concealed carriers could not bring their firearms into the building — with the exception of two specific courtrooms. So they have been moving toward protecting gun rights all along.

The official resolution

CBS Dallas Fort Worth reported,

The Ellis County Commissioners’ Court unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday upholding the Second Amendment which protects citizens’ “inalienable and individual right to keep and bear arms.”

In July, the Commissioners’ Court decided to remove a lockdown of the Historic Courthouse doors, which had prohibited License to Carry holders from carrying within the building.

The resolution designates Ellis County a Second Amendment “Sanctuary County.”

An excerpt from the resolution states: “This Commissioners Court will not authorize or appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies, contractors, buildings, detention centers or offices for the purpose of enforcing law that unconstitutionally infringes on the right of the people to keep and bear arms.”

Twelve Ellis County residents participated in the Commissioners’ Court session urging the court to approve of the resolution, the county said in a news release.

As gun rights supporters, there is a lesson here that we MUST be vigilant in not allowing liberals to gain support in our states.

The resolutions all pledge not to enforce any unconstitutional infringements on the second amendment rights of citizens. Ellis County is no exception. Police cannot protect everyone. The proponents of these resolutions understand that fact.

It is clear now that Democrats have won in Virginia, they will be targeting Texas. Stand tall, Texans. Freedom is at stake.
