GREENSBURG, Pa. — Westmoreland County commissioners are expected to approve a resolution supporting gun rights this week. According to our partners at TribLive.com, commissioners will declare it a “Second Amendment County.”
While it is largely symbolic, it does show support for gun owners.
“We want to protect our ability to own rifles and high-capacity magazines,” Commissioner Sean Kertes told TribLive.com. “Our powers are limited, but we want the public to know we are standing with them.”
