Rockingham County Administrator Stephen King said Friday the public hearing for a proposed Second Amendment sanctuary resolution has been moved to the Spotswood High School gymnasium.

Spotswood's gymnasium will open to the public at 6:30 p.m. ahead of the 7:15 hearing on Wednesday, and can seat 2,600 people with the option of adding seats on the floor.

Supervisors will still hold their regular 3 p.m. meeting at the Rockingham County Administration Center, along with the advertised public hearing for proposed land-use matters at 6 p.m. Once those hearings are complete, supervisors will travel to Spotswood High School.

Thank you for moving this outside the city limits of Harrisonburg, for I doubt not, this city is for Common Sense / Common Good change with respect to reducing crime and display of hatred, etc. via background checks that help ensure individuals who are violent criminals and have e.g., significant mental health problems are kept safe by not allowing them to have weapons.

Please keep your pistol handy and keep hunting (that's your right); but as for me, I want (need) safer schools, public spaces where I and millions of others traverse every today (other's rights). Peace to all!
