Mooresville, a town in Indiana has officially declared itself a sanctuary for both the First and Second Amendments.
The town of Mooresville declared itself both a First and Second Amendment sanctuary town and a place against cancel culture, but legal experts have doubts about what it actually does.
“This is just a product of a political environment where conservatives feel that free speech and Second Amendment rights are under assault. This is intended to make them feel better,” said Steve Sanders, a Constitutional law professor at the Maurer School of Law at IU Bloomington.
In a divided vote, the council voted to be a sanctuary town for both the First and Second amendments Tuesday night.
Mooresville is the first town in Indiana to do this.
Here’s a local news report on the resolutions:
One of the resolutions says that they will oppose any public funds used to infringe on residents’ Second Amendment rights.
The second resolution opposes infringements on religious liberties.
