The Butler County Fiscal Court approved a resolution declaring Butler County a Second Amendment Sanctuary.

Whereas, The United States Supreme Court in United States v. Miller (1939) stated that firearms that are part of ordinary military equipment with use that could contribute to the common defense are protected by the Second Amendment, and

Whereas, the Butler County Fiscal Court is concerned about the passage of any bill containing language which could be interpreted as infringing the rights of the citizens of Butler County to keep and bear arms, and

Whereas, the Butler County Fiscal Court wishes to express its deep commitment to the rights of all citizens of Butler County to keep and bear arms, and

Whereas, Butler County Fiscal Court wishes to express opposition to any law that would unconstitutionally restrict the rights of the citizens of Butler County to keep and bear arms, and

Whereas, the Butler County Fiscal Court wishes to express its intent to stand as a Sanctuary County for Second Amendment rights and to oppose, within the limits of the Constitution of the United States and the Commonwealth of Kentucky, any efforts to unconstitutionally restrict such rights.

Therefore, Be it Resolved, the People of Butler County, through their duly elected Fiscal Court hereby designate Butler County a Second Amendment Sanctuary in order to preserve for the People of, on, and in Butler County, their rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America, furthermore

That the Butler County Fiscal Court hereby expresses its intent to uphold the Second Amendment rights of the citizens of Butler County, Kentucky, and, furthermore
