CHEROKEE COUNTY, NC is officially the first Gun Sanctuary County in the state of NC as of March 4th, 2019!  
The Resolution (written by Dr Dan Eichenbaum ) was passed 
by the Cherokee County Commission at the March 4 meeting.  The Cherokee 
County Sheriff spoke at the commission meeting voicing his support of 
this resolution, his support of the 2nd Amendment, and the importance of 
it to the citizens of our county.

Copies are being sent all over, of course, especially to every county 
commission and Sheriff's Office in NC as well as all the 
representatives, state and national.
We are officially the first *Gun Sanctuary County in the state of NC!!
A Resolution Declaring Cherokee County, NC, a Gun Sanctuary County
On behalf of the citizens of Cherokee County, North Carolina, the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners state and accept as true the following:
  1. The Declaration of Independence states that people are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, . . . to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men . . . deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed"
  2. John Adams wrote in 1A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law (1765): "I say RIGHTS, for such they (the people) have, undoubtedly, antecedent to all earthly government, Rights, that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws, Rights derived from the great Legislator of the universe."
  3. Natural Law Rights, given to each of us by Our Creator, are the basis of our Constitution by which they are protected and secured to each of us. Natural Law Rights, including that of self-protection, are guaranteed by our Laws, our History, and our Traditions
  4. It is the natural tendency of civil government to expand beyond the limits of its rightful Constitutional authority and to usurp powers which have not been given to it through the delegated consent of the governed.
  5. Whenever the uses of government are perverted, individual sovereignty is overtly endangered or threatened, and all other means of redress are ineffective, the People may, and in fact ought to, force the reestablishment of the original constitutional limits of government.
  6. Resistance against arbitrary power and oppression is the obligation of every Patriot, as not to do so is destructive to the good and happiness of mankind. In fact, it is the duty of the People of Cherokee County, through the actions of their lesser magistrates, namely local elected officials and sheriffs, to challenge the civil government when and where it exceeds or threatens to exceed its bounds.
  7. The Constitution of the United States is the Supreme Law of our nation
  8. The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America states: "A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed"
  9. The U.S. Supreme Court found in Miranda v. Arizona (1966) stated that "Where rights secured by the constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them."
10.The U.S. Supreme Court in the District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) decision affirmed that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is not connected in any way to service in a militia
Many congratulations to Dr Dan and Cherokee County!  They are a model and inspiration for all of us!

We take no salaries. We are accomplishing all we have set out to do.  Not bad for this Tea Party movement being dismissed, derided, and marginalized by the Left and the establishment RINOs.  Join the fight.  We've much, much  more to do in our state, locally, and in D.C.!
