2A Sanctuary Resolution likely headed to Tuesday vote at Langlade Co. Board Meeting
LANGLADE CO. - Langlade Co. is one step closer to becoming a Second Amendment Sanctuary. Wednesday night, the Langlade Co. Public Safety Committee held a meeting where people could voice their opinions on the matter.

Most people, including Congressional candidate Tom Tiffany, spoke in support of the resolution. Benjamin Pierce is the County Supervisor who proposed making the county a 2A sanctuary. He said the information gathered tonight will inform the county supervisors on the views of their constituents.

"I expect this to go to full county board," said Pierce.  "We have a lot of information from the public for how to vote. We had overwhelming support. And I do believe it will pass the county board."

The next board meeting is on Tuesday, Feb. 18. Pierce said it is possible there will be changes to the wording of the resolution before then.
