GREENE COUNTY, Tenn. — (WCYB) - Greene County has failed to make itself a pro-gun Second Amendment sanctuary, NBC affiliate WCYB reports. 

There weren’t enough votes in Monday night’s county commissioners meeting to pass the resolution.

The idea stemmed from a state bill that didn't pass, but would have allowed police to confiscate guns from residents flagged as dangerous by family or law enforcement.

Mayor Kevin Morrison was among those who supported the resolution.

"We can remind our state legislators that we, as a group of people here, support the Second Amendment,” Morrison said. “We support the constitution and we support people's rights to keep and bear arms. I think that's appropriate.”

A resolution in support of the Second Amendment and gun rights did pass, however.
