A resolution by local govt to resist being used as a tool for violating the Bill of Rights is an entirely appropriate affirmation of official willingness to live up to the responsibilities of our times. During these trials (and the ones to come), it is a formal confirmation that those elected by the community are pledging to be as worthy as the citizens who have put them there.
