ST. JOSEPH — Berrien County commissioners on Thursday unanimously reaffirmed their commitment to the U.S. Constitution, especially the Second Amendment.

But their resolution fell short of declaring the county to be a “Second Amendment sanctuary county,” as requested by supporters in January of the Michigan for 2A Sanctuary Counties. The group’s proposed resolution also had asked that the Berrien County sheriff and prosecutor use their “sound discretion to not enforce against any citizen an unconstitutional firearms law.”
