The Iroquois County Board (Tuesday) gave final approval to make sure voters have their voice heard about the “right to bear arms.”
The Board voted to place an advisory referendum on the November ballot. The question will ask voters ‘if the general assembly should refrain from passing any additional legislation limiting a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms as defined by the 2nd amendment of the U.S. Constitution’
A committee vote approved the measure earlier. Board Chairman John Shure explained the question is intended to give the public a right to solidify our feelings about second amendment rights.
Iroquois County took the lead in addressing the matter months ago, several other counties following suit to show support. Some counties even declared themselves a Gun Sanctuary County.
