The crowd spilled out into the hallway at last Tuesday’s Meade County Fiscal Court meeting as the Court voted to support 2nd Amendment rights.
Several members of the public spoke to the court in support of the resolution that would ultimately be passed unanimously. The resolution states that the Court opposes the filing of any enactment of legislation that would infringe upon the right of the people to keep and bear arms and considers such laws unconstitutional and beyond lawful legislative authority. The resolution also states that the Court demands the Kentucky General Assembly cease further actions restricting the right of the people to keep and bear arms and hereby demands the Governor of Kentucky veto all such legislation which restricts the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
Dalton Jantzen, who spoke to the Court and those in attendance in support of the resolution, stated that America needed to stay unique.
“America is unique,” said Jantzen. “Did you know that one way we’re unique is we have the right to self-defense, and other countries don’t have the right to self-defense? In other words, other countries will see you defending your life or your loved ones as a crime and will prosecute you. In America, self-defense is a right.”
After the resolution was read, Judge/Executive Gerry Lynn made a motion to accept it. The Court voted to approve it unanimously, and the crowd cheered, clapped and whistled.
