Second Amendment sanctuary discussions picking up

Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says his oath is to the United States Constitution when it comes to establishing sanctuary communities with issues like immigration and the Second Amendment. Brown County became the latest to attempt to become a Second Amendment sanctuary, a movement occurring across the country to help protect citizens from possible overreach from the government to restrict gun ownership. While Brown County failed in their attempt Wednesday night, Florence County and the city of Merrill have passed measures declaring themselves as sanctuary communities for the Second Amendment. Joski says he would react rather than initiate such discussions about Kewaunee County becoming a Second Amendment sanctuary, but says he has an obligation to uphold the Constitution.

While he supports Second Amendment rights, Joski says there does need to be a conversation in some instances when it may not be safe for some people to have guns in their home.
