Will Hunt County become the next Second Amendment “sanctuary county?”

The Hunt County Commissioners Court is scheduled to consider the idea, during today’s regular meeting.

Hunt County Civil Attorney Daniel Ray said the issue will be addressed in an executive session.

“We’re just going to discuss it,” Ray said. “There’s not going to be any action on it.”

Earlier this month the governments of seven more counties, including Kaufman, had passed resolutions in support of citizens’ right to keep and bear arms, as protected by the U.S. and Texas Constitutions, bringing to 15 Texas counties which have adopted similar measures.

The resolution adopted Nov. 12 by the Kaufman County Commissioners Court on says “Therefore, Be It Resolved, the people of Kaufman (County), through their duly elected Commissioners Court, Judge and Sheriff, hereby designate Kaufman County to a Second Amendment Sanctuary in order to preserve for the people of, on and in Kaufman County, their rights preserved by the Constitution of the United States of America.”

Collin County is also reported to be considering a measure.

Ray said there are no immediate plans to pass a resolution in Hunt County.

“I’m just going to bring it up to them and answer any questions they may have and we can discuss what it may mean,” Ray said.

Today’s meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. in the Auxiliary Courtroom at 2700 Johnson Street in Greenville.
