Roosevelt County in New Mexico is the most recent county to declare themselves as a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.
The declaration simply means the sheriff’s offices of these counties will not be enforcing stricter background checks, especially when it comes to trading guns among family members.
The counties doing so, say the move defends their citizen’s rights to keep and bear arms.
State police, however, can still enforce the new legislation in these counties despite their declarations.
Roosevelt joins Quay and Union counties who have made similar declarations.
