Carter County joins six other counties in the state that have already passed the resolution including: Cumberland, Hancock, Harlan, Knott, Letcher and Lewis.

Second Amendment sanctuary counties say the goal is to protect the rights of gun owners by not abiding by gun control laws seen as a violation of the Second Amendment.

Opponents say the resolutions are mainly symbolic and can’t be enforced.
