ROCKWALL, Texas – The City Council of Rockwall voted 5-2 in favor of a resolution “to protect and defend the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms” during its meeting in March.
A Dallas TV station called the packed out meeting “a grass roots show of support for gun rights.”
A Rockwall High School senior and future Air Force Academy cadet joined at least nine other residents speaking in favor of the resolution.
“Our rights — specifically our Second Amendment rights — are being threatened by the federal government,” Zach Maginnis said. “As a citizen of Rockwall, I’d like to see my hometown lead by example and prepare a public response to these threats.”
Rockwall joins a wave of Texas cities and counties passing resolutions against the federal government and its infringement on the Second Amendment. Rockwall joined Cooke and Bandera Counties, as well as the cities League City, Gonzales, Temple, Tiki Island, Lake Worth, and most recently Prosper.Details
