Supporters of Second Amendment sanctuary push ahead

CALL TO ACTION —  Waukesha County voters: Where do your supervisors stand on a resolution that would make the county a Second Amendment sanctuary? Click here for a link to contact information for Waukesha County supervisors.

By M.D. Kittle 

MADISON — A resolution that would make Waukesha County a Second Amendment sanctuary appears to be moving forward, according to the measure’s author. 

Waukesha County Supervisor Steve Whittow tells Empower Wisconsin that the County Board’s executive committee expects to take up the resolution on Monday, March 16. If it moves out of committee it would come up for a full board vote on March 24. 

Whittow said there’s growing concern that County Board Chairman Paul Decker is working behind the scenes to table the measure. 

“We think Decker wants to table it to make it go away. That’s a bad decision on his behalf. That’s not what the public wants,” the supervisor said. 

Whittow said support is growing for the resolution, which would prohibit enforcement of gun control measures such as universal background checks and so-called Red Flag laws. 

“The supervisors are starting to crack, not publicly. I’m seeing some movement, but not a lot. We still have less than half the board, which is absolutely disgusting.” 

Decker recently told Empower Wisconsin that the board does not consider resolutions that are not germane to county business, although he acknowledges there is no written county policy stating as much. 

“We have done it by custom,” the chairman said. “I’m simply following the rules…It’s my job to defend the process and the integrity of the board,” Decker said. 

That could change soon, if proponents of the Second Amendment sanctuary resolution can garner enough support.
