This Letter to the Editor ran in the Florence Mining News shortly after the County Board voted unanimously to make Florence County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County. This effort was pushed by the newly elected Republican sheriff who was quoted as saying he loves God and the second amendment. The same article claimed they were protecting gun rights from a Democratic governor in Madison. This letter to the editor was written by the parents of the new sheriff. The general public did not know the county board was considering this action. A group of NRA people did know and were at the meeting.
