Coffee Co. Legislative Committe Sends Refugee and Second Amendment Resolutions to Full Commission

The Coffee County Legislative Committee elected Monday night, Feb. 24 to send two resolutions to the full county commission for a vote. One resolution would block refugees from relocating in Coffee County. The other resolution, if approved by the commission would designate the area as a second amendment county.
The resolution states that the Board of County Commissioners of Coffee County government will not authorize or appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies, contractors, buildings, detention centers, or offices for the purpose of enforcing or assisting in the enforcement of any element of such acts, laws, orders, mandates, rules or regulation that infringe on the right by the people to keep and bear arms.
The Tennessee Firearms Association supports the idea, however, organizations like Safe Tennessee Project say stronger gun control legislation is needed.
Some in attendance on Tuesday stated that the resolution has no power over federal law, it is just a resolution, but it does show support of the of second amendment.
Both resolutions will have to be approved by the Coffee County Commission when it meets on March 10, 2020.
