COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - "I was a gun toting mama, I did the target practice, and my husband had lots of guns and we enjoyed going to the range and shooting together," said Chris Straton.
Gun enthusiast Chris Straton, of Collier County, is concerned about the government's role in changing the Second Amendment. However, she feels any changes should stay at the federal level.
"I don't think that decisions on infringements of constitutional amendments rest with the Board of County Commissioners," said Straton.
But the Board voted unanimouslyto apporve a resolution that essentially voids any potential changes to the Second Amendment that come from the federal level.
"This is a great step, we're not taking anything away, 5-0, we're pleased," said Keith Flaugh.
Keith Flaugh, a member of the SWFL Citizen's Alliance, joined dozens of other supporters of this resolution, even wearing the Second Amendment on their t-shirts.
"This is not about gun control, I can't say that enough or too frequently, this is your right to self defense, against criminals and tyranny, and a baseball bat or a gun are just tools, this is about your right," said Flaugh.
"I'm personally hopeful for a better world, instead of a world where people feel they have to arm themselves to protect themselves from their neighbor," said Straton.
