Whitley Sanctuary for Guns

Nearly 200 people filled the Whitley County Fiscal Courtroom on Tuesday evening in support of one item on the court’s agenda, the resolution to make Whitley County a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County. Community members had their time to share their thoughts on the resolution with all voicing their support. “I really didn’t expect opposition,” said Whitley County Judge Executive Pat White Jr. “This is a conservative area, a rural area people appreciate their hunting rights. People want the right to defend their homes in rural parts of the county, and I expected there to be a lot of support.” Whitley County follows an ever-growing list of Kentucky’s counties that have adopted similar resolutions in the recent past.
