A small county in North Carolina voted last week to declare a "gun reserve".
The commissioners in Cherokee County voted 3-2 on March 6 for a symbolic resolution. It says in part that the county will force efforts by the state or federal authorities to enforce stringent arms control laws.
Written by County Commissioner Dan Eichenbaum, the resolution quotes the second amendment and the right to "keep and carry weapons" for protection, Cherokee Scout reported.

Officials cites similar regulations in Oregon as a reference. The declaration, which passed last week, is considered essentially symbolic.
Cherokee Scout reported that the county's decision to refuse to implement federal laws that do not conform to its own policies has some similarities to the concept of refugee cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration policies.
