RESOLUTION NO. 006-2013
OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF THE COUNTY OF ELDORADO
IN SUPPORT OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT
AND THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS
‘””
WHEREAS, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, as part of United States Bill of Rights, ratified on December 15, 1791, protects the right of the people to keep and bear Arms; and,
WHEREAS, two landmark decisions issued by the United States Supreme Court established that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that Arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as, but not limited to, self-defense within the home, and that the right could not be infringed by the federal government (District of Columbia v. Heller); and that under the Fourteenth Amendment the right to keep and bear Arms was incorporated and would also prohibit state and local governments from infringement of the
right (McDonaldv. City ofChicago); and,
WHEREAS, sadly, recent high profile events within our country have sparked discussions of gun-control at the local, state and federal levels and include numerous gun-control proposals that assert to address gun violence while, in fact, many of these proposals would directly infringe upon the Second Amendment rights; and,
WHEREAS, the County ofEI Dorado’s economy and rural quality are supported by ranching, farming and natural resources, and that the right to keep and bear Arms is fundamental to our right to protect our families, our property, our livestock, and our livelihood, and that the residents of this County respect the rights afforded by the Second Amendment through the recognition and support of responsible firearm ownership, training and awareness; and,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors of the County ofEI Dorado supports all discussions seeking new ideas to protect our citizens from violence but cannot abide by any provision infringing upon the Second Amendment.
PASSED AND ADOPTED by the Board of Supervisors of the County of El Dorado at a regular meeting of said Board, held the 29th day of January, 2013, by the following vote of said Board:
I CERTIFY THAT:
Ayes:veerkamp, Mikalaco, Nutting, Briggs

    Well…I guess that when your neighborhoods are being infiltrated by MS13 the 2nd amendment is also to defend from a Spanish speaking Org Crime Government?

    It may also be because of this

    Doesn’t help that Obama thinks everywhere is like this.

    The Bigger picture

    Obama doesn’t really want solutions anywhere – he is pushing the envelope for further Chaos

    Unfortunately everyone is focused on micromanaging small responses while Obama and Co. send out Tsunami’s.
