Ind. Gov't. "Franklin County fights federal gun control measures with 'Second Amendment Preservation Act'"

Renee Jameson has this report, with video, this evening at WRTV6. The story begins:

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ind. - As the highly charged debate over gun control rages in Washington, an Indiana county is taking a stand against federal gun laws.

Franklin County commissioners recently adopted what they call the Second Amendment Preservation Act, declaring that all federal laws on gun control violate the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

"If you have a license for an assault gun, than yes, you should be able to own one," said Donald Grizzell, one of the county's 24,000 residents.

The act says all federal gun control measures should be considered null and void in Franklin County.

"This is just another piece of the puzzle that we do need to step up and hold our public officials accountable for their oath to the Constitution," said Scott McDonough, a Franklin County commissioner.
