Sponsored by gun rights activists, the measure would prohibit county resources from being used to enforce any local, state or federal law or regulation that restricts the right to keep and bear firearms, accessories or ammunition.
That means Sheriff Matt Phillips could not enforce background checks, tracking requirements, confiscation orders, limits on semi-automatic firearms or accessories and restrictions on open or concealed carry. The fines for violating the measure would be up to $2,000.

|Just FYI -- Restrictions on semiautomatic firearms and magazines, per D.C. v. Heller, are already unconstitutional. Heller ruled that arms "in common use" by the American people are fully within the ambit of 2A protection.|
Semiautomatic firearms are and have been in common use for over a century.
