Sanctuaries from gun control?

American Military NewsA number of Illinois counties have passed resolutions declaring themselves as “sanctuary” counties for gun owners in an effort to stop the state legislature from pushing gun control measures, the Associated Press reported.

If the state legislature passes gun bills in Illinois – such as increasing the minimum age for owning a gun, a limit on magazine capacity or a bump stock ban – these Illinois counties would prevent their employees from enforcing such laws.

While definitely amusing, these are legally questionable, and if upheld, the obvious counter by the left would be to use the precedent to attack state level gun law preemption -- turning every county, city, town, municipality, and park into it's own gun control law authority. That would be self-defeating.

It is really funny, though.
