(MURFREESBORO) At Thursday night's Rutherford County Commission meeting, a resolution was passed unanimously (21-0) that makes this a "Second Amendment Sanctuary".
Commissioner Petus Read sponsored the bill, which has no legal standing and is only symbolic. A petition signed by nearly 1-thousand persons was presented to the elected official.
Local resident Andy Olsen stepped forward to thank Commissioner Read . . .
Then Murfreesboro resident and attorney Ramona Desalvo came forward and started with some surprising comments . . .
She pointed out that a "resolution is not a law, it is an expression of this body that represents the citizens of Rutherford County."
Olsen expanded on our "rights" . . .
At that point County Mayor Bill Ketron called for the vote . . .
Again, the resolution to make Rutherford "Second Amendment Sanctuary County" passed unanimously Thursday night (2/13/2020) by a vote of 21 to 0.
