Tucson, Arizona has long been known as the ‘People’s Republic of Pima’ due to its radically leftward bent, as democrats significantly outnumber Republicans.
It’s living up to that reputation as noted in this article in the Tucson Daily Star, written by Kathryn Palmer, headlined, “Tucson’s challenge to ‘2nd Amendment sanctuary’ law is latest in local control saga.” It details the collusion between Tucson Mayor Regina Romero and the accommodating Tucson City Council which unanimously passed a resolution saying the state of Arizona is not obliged to uphold federal gun laws.
The council’s action “prohibits the state and political subdivisions from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the U.S. government that is inconsistent with any Arizona law regarding the regulation of firearms,” effectively making Arizona a Second Amendment sanctuary state emulating the cites that provide “sanctuary” to illegal aliens. This is the council’s version of flipping off Second Amendment supporting citizens.
The City of Tucson has effectively thumbed its nose at Constitution supporting citizens and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signed the straightforward HB 2111 — titled, “Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act” — into law. The bill, passed by the AZ House and Senate bars in-state enforcement of any federal firearm laws which violate the Second Amendment, by prohibiting police and sheriffs from enforcing federal gun laws that violate the 2nd Amendment.”
