Good point. The town leadership said that the purpose of the ordinance is to make a statement in opposition to the Obama administration/gun control advocates' push to limit "gun rights." Sort of an expression of freedom of speech by a town enacting a law.

The Long County Commission at its March 5 meeting adopted a resolution to preserve and protect the second amendment of the constitution, which addresses the rights of citizens to own firearms.
An excerpt from the resolution states that “Long County, Georgia, will not enforce any unlawful and unconstitutional statutes, executive orders or other regulations and proclamations which conflict, and are expressly preempted, by the United States Supreme Court’s rulings on the right of an individual to keep and bear arms.”
