After many towns and cities in Pennsylvania have enacted 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolutions, Susquehanna County is the first county to enact a 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolution!
Republican Commissioner Michael Giangrieco, concerned over the legislation being passed in New York, decided that it was imperative to pass a 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolution at a county-level. He proposed a resolution that “any federal act, bill, law, rule or executive order that in any way infringes on our Second Amendment rights by attempting to reduce the private ownership of any firearm, magazine or ammunition shall be unenforceable in Susquehanna County.” Commissioner Giangrieco’s Resolution garnered bi-partisan support when Commissioner Chairman Alan Hall, also a Republican, seconded the motion and Democratic Commissioner MaryAnn Warren also voted to support the resolution. There was no opposition to Commissioner Giangrieco’s Resolution.
Being the true Patriot that he is, Commissioner Giangrieco declared “The Constitution is in place to protect us from the government. They’ve got it backwards,” in relation to recent attempts to limit our 2nd Amendment Rights. It was for this reason that he felt it necessary for Susquehanna to enact his Resolution.
We applaud Commissioners Giangrieco, Hall and Warren for their unconditional support of the 2nd Amendment
