STARK COUNTY, Ohio — Stark County is considering becoming a Second Amendment sanctuary, according to News 5's media partners at the Alliance Review.

A Second Amendment sanctuary refers to a local government that won't follow any state or federal gun laws that prohibit or impede the Second Amendment.

On Saturday, residents met at Don Pancho's Tex-Mex Cafe to start the process of becoming a Second Amendment sanctuary.

Their goal is to convince the Stark County commissioner's office to pass a resolution to declare them a sanctuary.

They plan to start a petition and want to get 126,000 signatures before presenting their ideas to the county-board.

In the past two years, hundreds of communities across the country have declared themselves sanctuaries, including in Meigs County, which is in southern Ohio.
