An agenda item to discuss the second amendment to the United States Constitution drew a crowd to the April 20 regular meeting of the Kearney County Board of Supervisors.
There has been a push across the state for Counties to declare their support of the second amendment by resolution. Before taking action on the matter, the board held a discussion to determine where the board stands. Supervisor Larry Landstrom and Chairman Brent Stewart shared that they had spoken with some of their constituents to gauge their feeling on the topic and none were opposed to the board approving such a resolution.
Several residents attending the meeting also spoke in favor of the board going on record stating they will support and defend the second amendment as they claimed when they took their oath of office. They also encouraged the board to name Kearney County a sanctuary county for the second amendment.
