Second Amendment Supporters Demand Henrico Resolution
The Henrico County Board of Supervisors was posed with a question last night facing a dozens of counties in Virginia whether to or not become a "Second Amendment Sanctuary."

Charles Fishburne: It was a rare display in board chambers.
Fishburne: Of reason.
Participant: It’s not about collecting, it’s not about hunting. It is about the ability to defend ourselves.
Fishburne: And anger:
Participant : I will not compromise. I will not give up my guns to you or anybody else.
Fishburne: They wanted Henrico County to become a Second Amendment Sanctuary.
Fishburne: Instead County Supervisor Pat O’Bannon offered a resolution to “support the constitution."
O’Bannon : My point really is to form an agreement.
Fishburne: Chairman Tyrone Nelson didn’t like it.
Nelson: We have to pass a resolution to say that we will follow the constitution I think…(interrupted) Yeah! yeah!
Fishburne: The vote to support the constitution was 3-2, along party lines.
