Firearms Protection Legislation reaches 50%

50% of the States have introduced or passed a Firearms Protection Act.

The 2nd Amendment Preservation Act is a state-level bill that renders all federal gun laws, regulations, rules, acts, orders, etc – null and void within the borders of the state.

The Firearms Freedom Act declares that any firearm made and retained in-state is beyond the authority of Congress under its constitutional power to regulate commerce among the states. The FFA is primarily a Tenth Amendment challenge to the powers of Congress under the commerce clause, with firearms as the object.

According to the legislation tracking at the Tenth Amendment Center, 25 states have either introduced or passed a bill nullifying Federal gun law.

Since 2009, eight states, Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Wyoming, have signed the Firearms Freedom Act into law.

Four of these states, Alaska, Arizona, Tennessee, and Wyoming, which have previously have passed the Firearms Freedom Act into law, have now introducing the 2nd Amendment Protection Act in their current sessions as well.

Most exciting!  In the past few weeks 17 additional states have introduced one or both of the Firearms bills: Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.

Wyoming has already passed the 2nd Amendment Protection Act out of its House, 46-13.

A majority of Bills introduced at the state level will die either in committee or on the floor without ever coming to a vote.  Unfortunately this is the process of political expediency.  Generally, a bill that clearly has enough votes to pass will be more likely to be brought to a vote.  So it is imperative that we make our voice heard.  Please send a brief hand written note to your Congressman asking him/her to support these bills.
