City of Prescott to Vote on 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Status

10 February 2020  

2nd Amendment Sanctuary Status is on the agenda for the City of Prescott’s next Council meeting.

Update: The Founders Room at the Library will be available as an overflow room, and will have video feed of the meeting.

It was just last Wednesday that hundreds of people filled the Yavapai County Administration building to witness the Supervisors vote on whether or not to declare Yavapai County a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary County.

After listening to comments for more than an hour, the Resolution passed unanimously with a 5-0 vote.

Now, the City of Prescott will vote on a similar measure, placed on the agenda at the request of Councilman Phil Goode and Councilwoman Cathey Rusing. In the packet, the recommended action is to: MOVE to adopt Resolution #2020-1734.
