Q13 Fox News – The town of Republic may declare itself a sanctuary city from a newly passed gun measure. Republic is in northeastern Washington, about two-and-a-half hours from Spokane, near the Canadian border. About 1,000 people live there.
The mayor there is considering an ordinance, proposed by the police chief to make Republic a sanctuary city for gun rights. This is in response to voters across the state passing Initiative 1639. That initiative puts more restrictions on buying and storing guns.
