Price County Courthouse

Price County Courthouse

A proposed resolution that would have declared Price County a Second Amendment sanctuary failed to make it beyond the June 12 Law Enforcement Committee meeting.

Similar resolutions have come before several counties in Wisconsin, passing in some and failing in others. These resolutions — which contain wording supporting the constitutional right of citizens to bear arms and opposing any legislation that would restrict those rights, directly or indirectly, such as additional taxation on firearms or ammunition — are generally considered symbolic and not legally binding.
