As the Biden administration pushes more and more for strict gun control nationwide, it would appear (especially if you watch the mainstream media) that the Second Amendment in America is doomed.
But that conclusion isn’t so inevitable.
For example, more and more states are passing laws or their governors are issuing executive orders that prevent those state governments from enforcing any Federal government mandates or laws for gun control. So, while the Federal government may pass a law or Biden may sign an executive order pushing gun control, a state’s willful inaction in enforcing that law has the effect of nullifying that law (see here for more information about that).
And, now, another state has jumped on the bandwagon toward moving to nullify Federal gun control laws. Jack Phillips writes,
The Arkansas state Senate voted this week to block federal law enforcement officials enforcing certain gun laws and regulations, sending a bill to the state House in the midst of congressional gun-control proposals.
The Senate voted 28-7 to approve the measure, which will then be sent to the House. Arkansas’ Legislature is overwhelmingly Republican.
“All acts, law, orders, rules, and regulations of the United States Government, whether past, present, or future, that infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Arkansas Constitution, Article 2, [Section] 5, are invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state,” according to the text of the bill.
The measure will prohibit any law enforcement agencies in Arkansas from cooperating with federal officials to enforce federal gun laws that go in conflict with the rights provided in the Arkansas Constitution, according to Arkansas Online. Some state lawmakers expressed a worry that President Joe Biden would ramp up gun-control measures.
Phillips also notes that one State Senator, Jim Hendren, “said the bill would put Arkansas’ federal funding at risk and would place an unnecessary hurdle between Arkansas law enforcement and federal agents.”
I would want to ask Hendren, though, if Federal law enforcement agents are violating their oath of office to uphold the Constitution, why would we want state law enforcement cooperating with them? Wouldn’t that be trying to force state law enforcement officers to violate their oath of office, too?
I’ll be blunt here: Arkansas is doing the right thing here, and every state in the union should pass similar legislation to completely nullify all Federal gun control efforts. Why? Because gun control is unconstitutional. Period.
The legislative action described strikes this citizen as more than a little interesting.
I for one, find that some States are waking up to what is happening in our country and I would love to see every State do this. Very radical ideas coming out of Washington and they are not for the benefit of regular citizens. Just flooding the U S with illegal immigrants and thousands of children in cages and no parents and the President ignoring it is proof of who is looking out for the citizens of the US, No one! So States, you better look out for your own.
The more states that fight this bullshit, the more we get back to the constitution and 2nd Amendment.
Not to mention these are NOT ‘immigrants’, per se, but illegal border crossers (CRIMINALS!), who, as found in many casses, are actually TRUE THUGS…..murderers, rapists, drug runners, gang members and TERRORISTS from MANY nations! Some have been caught previously and deported more than once! Yet, OUR latest Federal administration is WELCOMING (!!!) these with open arms! UNBELIEVABLE!
Disarming the public is step 1 of a pending dictatorship. Just notice that there is never any mention of the fact that guns do NOT kill people. People kill people. They just happen to use guns, and hammers, and knives, and cars, and poisons, and oh yeah Antifa and BLM. Let’s start banning the last two first and that would be a good start while we carry guns to protect ourselves from them. I know this is way too much common sense for the radical and dangerous Demorats to understand but the one thing they do understand is power and that where this is all headed.
Congrats to many pro 2A states an hope an pray more will join the 2A sanctuary movement
I can only hope!
Lets go 2nd Amendment and 10th Amendment nullification
It is evidently time to stand up for the constitution if we are to survive this crazy notion that guns kill people ! If we allow them to take away the right to bare arms , all is lost ! What if we all buy golf clubs ( mainly irons ) , will we allow them to take away those also ?
I live in Washington state. The governor here anti gun anti 2nd amendment!
When the government passes UNLAWFUL LAWS, even the Bible tells you to reject them!
So, pass the laws in your state that will prevent the unlawful laws from being enacted!
Let the fools hurt each other.
Remember: GOOD GUN CONTROL is TWO HANDS on the WEAPON and both eyes bringing the aim on CENTERMASS!!!
This has no chance of catching on! It is logical. Logic has no place in Bidens America.
Kudos to Arkansas!
The Bible states that in the end of times, what’s wrong will be made right and what’s right will be made wrong!! Already happening!!! We must keep our Constitution intact and carry every day!
Good, but governor Asa (RINO ) Hutchison, will never sign it into law.
Then vote him OUT!!!!!!
What part of “…SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” of the 2A do the demo-socialists not understand? They can have my guns when they pry them from me dead, cold hands!
We should all ignore the Gun Control Laws as they are all Unconstitutional. The 1968 Gun Control Act was taken directly from the 1938 NAZI Gun Control Act by Thomas Dodd the father of Christopher Dodd. It was intended to keep Guns out of the hands of Colored People.
The modern times our Constitution was written proves that “All People” over the earth have been subjected to tyranny by some President Dictator. The motive is the same no matter the year. More for less.
The last time a tyrannical gub’ment tried to take our weapons and force us into submission, WE KILLED ‘EM !
