LAMPASAS, TX — As the debate over gun control continues, people are searching for answers.

A man from Lampasas County has a solution he believes would work for his community.

Daniel Grahn, a 26 year old from Lampasas, hopes Lampasas County will join two other counties here in the Lone Star State, and dozens of other jurisdictions across the country, by becoming a sanctuary for the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.

"Essentially, it would basically be like a safety net that should any laws be passed that would violate any of your constitutional rights, that it would basically just be a refusal to enforce those laws in particular," said Grahn.

He started a petition to make Lampasas County a sanctuary for the Second Amendment.

The petition reads, "As you may be aware, many of the 2020 presidential Candidates have made it their priority to not only ban firearms, but also confiscate them with mandatory buyback programs. With this petition we would like to join the over 200 Counties across America, and 9 states, that have taken the extra step to protect your right to bear arms."

Just last week, he presented the idea to the Lampasas County Commissioners Court.

"It seemed liked it was received fairly well," said Grahn.

So far, he has just over 40 signatures.

We reached out to the Lampasas County Commissioners Court. They said at this time they can not comment on the petition, and they plan to do more research before making any decisions.

Grahn said his next step is to raise awareness and create an online petition. Right now, the petition can be found in Lampasas gun shops.
