I just read that the executive board of the county I live in wants to make it a sanctuary

County for the second amendment. You know, so no one will try to take guns from gun owners. I live in Brown County WI.

I was raised in a hunting family, and have family and friends who hunt and shoot competitively, and as long as people are responsible, and licensed, I have no problem with gun ownership.

On the other hand I am a grandmother and sickened by the fact my grandson has to go through drills and lockdowns. I have also been the victim of armed robbery in my early years in restaurant management. I lived in Texas at the time and we had identifying photos of various guns and height markers on the front door.

I was just wondering if anyone would like to call it email to the how it being a sanctuary county would fit in on your decision to say, go to a packers game. Or to visit and spend money on this beautiful but very red part of the state. Nice to know that Brown County protects its gun owners. But will it protect its citizens or the tourists who come to the area for games, festivals, concerts. I am hoping this would make an impact.

If just 5 or 10 or a hundred call and let them know this would impact their travel to this part of the country, you would make a fellow DUer happy.

I am sorry I don't know how to post an article, I got it off the internet from WGBA Green Bay, the local NBC affiliate.

I am against gun rights sanctuaries, don't think there is a need for them up here, most feel the way I do from both parties. and I am tired of WI republicans and what they have done to a once blue state. And I am afraid of what it will attract to this area.

I hope it is ok that I am asking this, but I figure nothing ventured nothing gained. I can add the info if it is ok by DU rules, not sure if allowed.

Somehow the shootings and the irresponsibility of the republicans and the NRA needs to be addressed. Maybe a little grass roots would help.

4. I live in a southern Illinois County so dominated by the Dark Side that our county board has made us

a "sanctuary" for both the Second Amendment and "the unborn". Gives you some idea of how pleasant it is to leave the house with an "Impeach Trump" shirt and a bumper sticker that asks "Does your Trump sticker make you feel stupid yet?"

6. Our county commissioners did that last month

A month after they denied the country library the funds to offer the New York Times in digital format to its card holders.

The good part of it is that people here are waking up. The LTEs in the local paper are, for the first time in forever, overwhelmingly against these amadans.

9. Good for you!

Our first Democratic Women's Club meeting of the new year had 42 people in attendance, including 20 newbies! It was our best turnout yet.
