The Shohola Board of Supervisors on June 11 agreed to make the township a Second Amendment sanctuary township.
The adopted resolution states that Shohola will never infringe on anyone’s Constitutional rights or support any outside agency’s efforts to infringe on those rights. The entire resolution will be posted in a few months as soon as the new web site is uploaded.
The room was packed, and no opposing views were expressed. The resolution was received by a round of applause.
On social media, one local person said resolutions like this would mean a lot of poorly educated people going around shooting up the place.
Blooming Grove has already passed the same resolution.
George C. Fluhr, the board’s vice chair, said that without the Second Amendment, none of the other amendments are secure.
Present also were Bob Roche and Patti Coombs of the Pike County Second Amendment Sanctuary Movement. They thanked the supervisor for their decision.
