According to the Virginia Citizens Defense League, there are now 23 Second Amendment sanctuaries in the state, which include Dickenson, Tazewell and Washington counties.

Second Amendment sanctuaries are not legally binding. Instead, they send a message that county leaders pledge not to use any funds to enforce legislation that could be seen as infringing on the citizens’ Second Amendment rights.
