Brunswick County NAACP denounces “Gun Rights Sanctuary” resolution

Brunswick County unanimously passes second amendment resolution

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Brunswick County chapter of the NAACP announced Monday that it is adamantly opposed to a resolution to make Brunswick County a constitutional rights protected county. Hours after a press release was sent out stating the opposition, Brunswick County Commissioners unanimously passed the second amendment resolution.

Carl Parker, President of the Brunswick County chapter of the NAACP sent a letter to the commissioners expressing the organization’s opposition.

“It is our belief that the county has no authority to say whether or not a state or federal law is unconstitutional,” Parker said. “The only way to make that happen is if the commissioners decide to file suit against the state.”

Here is a copy of the letter:

The NAACP letter was submitted to the board as part of the official public record.

Columbus and Bladen counties have recently passed similar resolutions in recent weeks.
