On Wednesday, Gov. Pete Ricketts (R-NE) declared Nebraska a “2nd Amendment Sanctuary State.”
The state-level action comes after passage of “Second Amendment Sanctuary” status in a number of Nebraska counties, WOWT noted.
NTV ABC highlighted the proclamation’s warning: “The White House and U.S. Congress have announced their intention to pursue measures that would infringe on the right to keep and bear arms,” it reads. As a result, “Nebraska will stand up against federal overreach and attempts to regulate gun ownership and use in the Good Life.”
Ricketts posted a video himself signing the proclamation to Facebook:
It’s official: Nebraska is a Second Amendment Sanctuary State! #2A
