In protest of a pending law that expands background check requirements for gun purchases, a New Mexico County has deemed itself a "Second Amendment Sanctuary County," according to Fox News.

One of the laws in question, HB 8 would require background checks for gun purchases even between private citizens, which the New Mexico Sheriff's Association called an unenforceable law.

The other law, HB 83, would create an "Extreme Risk Protection Order" that would authorize the seizure of guns and ammo from people who are deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.

Quay County passed a resolution to protest the laws

A small county in eastern New Mexico declared itself a “Second Amendment Sanctuary County” on Wednesday in protest of pending gun control legislation in the state.

The Quay County Commission voted unanimously to pass the resolution, Albuquerque's KRQE-TV reported.

The state’s House Republicans commended the move in a statement, saying they are proud of Quay County, with its population of about 10,000 citizens, for standing up for the rights of New Mexicans. Republican lawmakers represent the minority in both the state’s House and Senate.

"Because men have lost the objective basis of certainty of knowledge of the thing in which they are working, more and more I fear we are going to find them manipulating science according to their own sociological or political desires rather than standing upon concrete objectivity."
