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.”
Westmoreland would join Washington, Fayette and Greene counties’ leaders in approving similar resolutions.
