2nd Amendment Sanctuary Cities and Counties

So-called “Second Amendment Sanctuaries” have been increasing in popularity around the country

Gun Owners of America began distributing this template for New York municipalities.  Essentially, they want municipalities to enact legislation prohibiting the use of monies to enforce the SAFE Act and other gun control laws.

I don’t see any problems asking locals not to spend money on gun control enforcement, however, SAFE itself is funded through the state budget and Albany legislators cannot defund it this way.  I am not aware of any New York municipality which has enacted something like this so I am unsure how effective this tactic is even from a public relations standpoint.  Generally, the best way to defeat gun control for gun owners to be involved in the selection and election processes for candidates at all levels of government.
