SHOW LOW — Steve Slaton and Karen MacKean, co-owners of the Trumped Store and Coffee Shop in Show Low, spoke before the Show Low City Council during “Call to the Public” Tuesday, Feb. 18, proposing that Show Low be declared a 2nd Amendment sanctuary city. “There have been 30 bills introduced to take away the 2nd Amendment,” says Slaton. “It’s preposterous.”
“I’d like to propose for the city of Show Low to declare itself a 2nd Amendment sanctuary city,” urged Slaton. “It would be the first in the state to do so (if adopted). Four counties have already done so and astonishing, even the Navajo Nation has come on board as well — with Apache County becoming a 2nd Amendment sanctuary city.”
Slaton asked that the proposal be included on a future council agenda and says he will introduce the same idea and document to Navajo County in the near future.
Slaton provided the council with 18-page document titled, “2nd Amendment Sanctuary City, County and Reservation Movement Handout #1 -The Rights of the People.”
Talking points written by attorney Michael E. Taylor were included in the packet including 10 items relating to the proposed resolution relating to “the right to keep and bear arms.”
The proposal in its entirety may be seen by contacting Steve Slaton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
