With almost 50 counties declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries in recent weeks, now Altavista Town Council unanimously approved a letter of support for Campbell County’s Second Amendment sanctuary resolution.

Council member Reggie Bennett raised the issue and was placed on the consent agenda for the council’s Tuesday night meeting.

“It’s just another way of showing appreciation for our board of supervisors,” Bennett said. “We’re citizens of Campbell County as much we are the town of Altavista."
