CANTON, Ohio I(News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A new group wants to have Stark County named a Second Amendment Sanctuary County.

The designation tells the state and federal government that the county won’t follow gun laws that they believe violate that amendment.

The group tells Channel 5 they are trying to get 126,000 petition signatures to present to county commissioners, asking them to pass a resolution to that effect.

A number of counties in Virginia have already approved such resolutions.
