Tucson Officials are planning to ignore the new Second Amendment sanctuary legislation of Arizona, that prohibits state and local governments to enforce some federal gun policies, Fox News informed.
The move would probably set up a court fight while there is an increasing number of cities and counties in the US introduce similar havens for firearms.
The motion led by the Democratic Mayor Regina Romero and the City Council is some kind of opposition to the Republican-led state and its ways of regulating the use and sales of firearms.
Tucson has made multiple attempts in enforcing stricter gun laws than the state ones, including a mandatory background checks for firearm purchased on city property as well as destroying seized guns.
Through the years, these regulations have gone through many challenges due to the Republican-led legislature that passed legislation that barred these type of actions.
