PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) -- The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors plans to vote Wednesday on whether to join Mohave County in declaring itself a sanctuary county in support of gun rights.

The Daily Courier reports that the Yavapai County board in December and January heard hours of testimony from dozens of people on the proposal.

The Yavapai County resolution pledges the supervisors to defend state and federal constitutional rights, including the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

The measure also declares Yavapai County a "Second Amendment Sanctuary County" and says the supervisors won't spend public money or use other government resources to enforce laws that unconstitutionally infringe on gun rights.
