LOCK HAVEN – State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R-Centre/Clinton) issued the following statement of support and pledged to work together with county officials and law enforcement to adopt a Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance:
“It is alarming that I need to write a letter such as this, but the time has come. Freedom and our God- given rights are under attack.
“Today, I am expressing my complete support for Clinton and Centre counties to enact a Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance to protect law-abiding 76th District residents against unconstitutional gun control laws imposed in Harrisburg or Washington, D.C.
“Some of the ‘unlawful acts’ nullified by this Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance would include Red Flag Gun Confiscation orders, taxation of firearms and ammunition; registration or tracking of guns or gun owners; and any bans or restrictions on legally purchased firearms, ammunition or accessories.
“Additionally, this ordinance would prohibit the use of county funds in the enforcement of the defined ‘unlawful acts.’ It would also reaffirm the duty of lower public officials to uphold their oath of office to stand against tyranny and protect the citizens of their county.
“Most importantly, this Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance would uphold the higher laws of the Pennsylvania Constitution, including the Commonwealth’s firearms preemption law, and the U.S. Constitution.
“I look forward to working with my sheriffs, commissioners and if need be supervisors across the 76th District to get this job done and safeguard our sacred right to bear arms. This week, I am meeting with Clinton County commissioners and the sheriff to discuss this Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance, and I plan to meet with Centre County officials in the near future.
“My resolve is strong on this matter. There is no freedom without the ability to defend that freedom. Stand with me to secure the 76th District as a Second Amendment Sanctuary County in both Clinton and Centre counties.”
