Tombstone Proclaimed “America’s Second Amendment City”

posted on January 13, 2017

The United States now boasts a town that has proclaimed itself “America’s Second Amendment City.” Tombstone, Ariz., made the announcement official on Tuesday. 

“Tombstone as America’s Second Amendment City is making a statement that the citizens of Tombstone understand the importance of the Second Amendment,” said Mayor Dusty Escapule. “I think all the communities along the border should recognize how the right to bear arms plays an important part in our day-to-day lives.”

Tombstone embodies the pioneer spirit of the West and is a tourist town bustling with activities, including historic gunfight reenactments, a national fast-draw contest, SASS events and more. Each October, on the anniversary of the shootout at the O.K. Corral, Tombstone celebrates its heritage with a three-day, fun-filled festival. 

“This represents a great day in our history,” said Gordon Anderson, business owner and originator of the proclamation. “It fits into our past, present and future.”
