2nd Amendment Proclamation

County office doors will be open around 8:30 a.m. Additionally, there are Public Participation Forms (green sheet) available to anyone wishing to make comments on any agenda item or any other remarks during the “Call to the Public”.

There has been some speculation that there was to be a Second Sanctuary Amendment resolution proposal before the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors on Jan 2.  

New information from the BOS office states that there is NO resolution on the agenda. (Read Agenda)

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will make the following proclamation:

WHEREAS, the members of this Board took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and Laws of the State of Arizona, and today hereby reaffirm our commitment to that oath. 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, by the authority granted by the laws of the State of Arizona and the people of Yavapai County, Arizona do hereby reaffirm the commitment of the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors and its individual members to support and defend the rights and liberties of the citizens of Yavapai County as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Arizona; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors affirms its commitment to support and defend the right of the citizens of Yavapai County to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Arizona. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors encourages all citizens of Yavapai County to support and defend their right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Arizona. 


If you wish to voice your opinion on any attempt to pass a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Resolution in Yavapai County please do so.

Here is an example of what you could write or say in your message:

“I wish to voice my opposition to the acceptance of any “2nd Amendment Sanctuary ordinance” brought before the board. America is built on the rule of law and the law of the United States is the Constitution.  Federal law is primary. Ignoring the rule of law endangers all citizens of Yavapai County.

Thank you and your attorney(s) for realizing that a 2nd Amendment Ordinance or Resolution is not legal and will not stand in court.

What is a Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolution?

  • Passing a resolution declares that restrictive gun control laws, such as red flag law proposed by Gov. Ducey, another legislative body passes are unconstitutional and will not be enforced.
  • These resolutions do not carry the force of law. (But laws need somebody to enforce them, and many sheriffs and police officers in counties where Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions have been passed support their communities’ decisions, or at the bare minimum, aren’t willing to stringently enforce the legislatures’ laws.)
  • Second Amendment sanctuaries refuse to dedicate resources to enforcing things like “red flag” laws and bans on certain weapons.
