White County Board passes largely symbolic anti-gun control resolution
PHP-Nuke
The White County Board passed a largely symbolic resolution Monday declaring its support of the Second Amendment and its intent to oppose the enactment of state laws infringing upon the amendment and the rights it gives Illinois citizens. The last line of the proposed resolution says "consider such laws to be unconstitutional and beyond lawful Legislative authority." Board Chairman Ron Wooten said the board's legal counsel had advised against approving this line of the resolution, saying the board lacks authority to declare a state law unconstitutional. The resolution was presented by Mike and Valinda Rowe, who were featured in a front page story last week in The Times. They are spending their retirement fighting for gun rights in Illinois and are seeking the passage of a concealed carry law in Illinois, one of two states that do not allow private citizens to carry a concealed firearm.The Rowes have a personal stake in the fight. A mentally ill family member burned his own house down some years ago and promised to also burn the Rowes up in their home. The Rowes could arm themselves inside their own home to protect themselves from this threat, but, under the law, could not arm themselves outside their home. The Times story or links to the story have circulated widely on the internet, including a link appearing on the NRA's legislative action website. The resolution passed by the board read as follows: "Whereas, the right of the people to keep and bear arms is guaranteed as an individual right under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Illinois, and; "Whereas, the right of the people to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people of White County, Illinois, and; "Whereas, the people of White County, Illinois, derive economic benefit from all safe forms of firearms recreation, hunting and shooting conducted within White County using all types of firearms allowable under the U.S. Constitution . . . "Whereas, (the) White County Board being elected to represent the people of White County and being duly sworn by their oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution . . . "Whereas, the Illinois House of Representatives and the Illinois Senate, being elected by the people of the State of Illinois and being duly sworn by their oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution . . . "Whereas, proposed legislation under consideration by the (Legislature) would infringe upon the right to keep and bear arms and would ban the possession and use of firearms now employed by the individual citizens of White County, Illinois, for defense of life, liberty and property and would ban the possession and use of firearms now employed for safe forms of firearms recreation, hunting and shooting conducted within White County, Illinois; "Now, therefore, it be and is hereby resolved that the people of White County, Illinois, do hereby oppose the enactment of any legislation that would infringe upon the right of the people to keep and bear arms." White County joins Pike, Brown, Hancock, Schuyler, Randolph and Johnson counties in passing this resolution. Many others, according to the Rowes, are considering the resolution.
