[VIDEO] The Mason County Commission passed a resolution Tuesday opposing implementation of Initiative 1639 which was approved by voters last fall. I-1639 raises the legal age to buy semiautomatic rifles — widely described as assault rifles — from 18 to 21. And enacts a new storage law that requires gun owners to secure their firearms, or risk criminal penalties.
The resolution comes two weeks after Sheriff Casey Salisbury announced his position on enforcing the gun initiative and instructed his deputies to “take no enforcement action” as it pertains to I-1639. The Commissioners passed the resolution unanimously despite two residents voicing their opposition.
The two opposing the resolution also spoke against the Sheriff’s position.Continue reading County Passes Resolution against I-1639
