"Second Amendment sanctuary" refers to states, counties or localities that have adopted laws or resolutions designed to impede enforcement of gun control measures that pro-gun activists deem contrary to the Second Amendment.

At least three more county boards in rural Minnesota voted Tuesday to approve resolutions declaring themselves "Second Amendment Dedicated" counties, a move that signals the strength of pro-gun sentiments outside of the Twin Cities metro area.

Clearwater, Marshall and Wadena counties each approved the resolutions. The vote was 4-0 in Clearwater County, with Commissioner John Nelson absent. The vote was unanimous in Marshall County. And the vote in Wadena County was 4-1, with Commissioner Jim Hofer voting no.
