Schoolcraft now 2nd Amendment sanctuary

MANISTIQUE — Schoolcraft County has joined other Michigan counties — including Delta County — in becoming a Second Amendment sanctuary county. A resolution making Schoolcraft’s sanctuary county status official passed on a split vote of the Schoolcraft County Board of Commissioners Thursday.

Under the resolution, Schoolcraft County has been declared a Second Amendment sanctuary county and has affirmed its support of the county’s sheriff and prosecuting attorney “in the exercise of their sound discretion to not enforce against any citizen an unconstitutional firearms law.” The board will also direct staff to forward copies of the resolution to elected county officials in the Upper Peninsula, members of the Michigan Legislature representing the U.P., and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

Commissioners Craig Reiter, Allan Ott, and Daniel Hoholik voted “yes” on the resolution, while Commissioners Corey Barr and John Shiner voted “no.”
