As Democrats vow to reform gun laws, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts is standing up for second amendment rights. On Thursday, Rickets signed a proclamation declaring his state a “Second Amendment Sanctuary State.”

Taking his message to Twitter, Governor Ricketts posted a video with the caption “It’s official: Nebraska is a Second Amendment Sanctuary State! #2A.” In the video, Ricketts says “Nebraska has always been a state that has supported our Second Amendment rights. As a symbol of that support, today I am signing a proclamation to declare Nebraska a Second Amendment Sanctuary State.”

The proclamation reads, “The White House and U.S. Congress have announced their intention to pursue measures that would infringe on the right to keep and bear arms…Nebraska will stand up against federal overreach and attempts to regulate gun ownership and use in the Good Life.”

Last week, white house press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden “is not going to wait for Congress to act to take additional executive actions.” Speaking about plans to take action relating to gun violence, Psaki continued, “this is the beginning. He will continue to have his team review, both from a policy and a legal standpoint, additional executive actions that are possible to take.”

Legislation to make Texas a sanctuary state was introduced in February by State Representative Justin Holland. Last week Texas Governor Gregg Abbott tweeted in support of gun rights and vowed to make Texas a sanctuary state. “Biden is threatening our 2nd Amendment rights. He just announced a new liberal power grab to take away our guns. We will NOT allow this in TX. It’s time to get legislation making TX a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State passed and to my desk for signing” tweeted Abbot on April 8.

If passed, the states will join Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, Wyoming and Arizona, along with around 400 counties in 20 states, that have also designated themselves as gun rights sanctuaries” reports Business Insider.

    We DON’T have a “president” in this country………WE DO have a Lunatic DICTATOR that does everything by Executive Order, just like ALL DICTATORS !! SO glad there are Governors out there that are taking him on as they should !! LAWSUITS should be flying left, right and center against the WORST PRESIDENT IN RECENT HISTORY !!
