As of summer 2001, 61.35% of Americans counties are Second Amendment Sanctuary resolutions on the books, either by county level provisions or by state-level legislation. They vary in terms of the teeth behind them, too. Some (like most in Illinois) are largely symbolic. Other states have provisions which will hold local officials who violate them liable.
1,965 counties [Ed: of 3033 total] in the United States are covered by either state or county level 2A Sanctuary resolutions, ordinances, or laws. This number represents
62.5% [Editor: 64.8… math isn’t that hard, folks] of American counties. Progress has slowed somewhat compared to our last update due to the fact that in our previous update we had just finished adding multiple entire states to the list as many of them were finishing their legislative sessions. In this update, we do not have any new 2A Sanctuary States to share with you, but we do have a number of new counties. We have added 35 counties to the list/map since our last update so we decided it was high time to publish an updated map.
Clearing up confusion
Some outlets have reported that all of these counties have individually passed resolutions/ordinances. This is not accurate. Hundreds of counties have indeed passed their own county level resolutions/ordinances (hundreds of which we have collected on our Resolutions Page) however, there are also hundreds of counties that are protected by 2A Sanctuary laws at the state level only. If you look at the map, the counties colored in blue are only covered by state level 2A Sanctuary laws. If your county is displayed in blue on the map, then you should consider working to get a resolution or ordinance passed at the county level as well.
