GPM just reported that legislators in Missouri and Arkansas have filed bills to make their states strongholds against inevitable onslaughts the Biden administration is preparing to wage against the Second Amendment.
Missouri has the option to adopt the Second Amendment Preservation Act, and Arkansas lawmakers have been presented with the Second Amendment Liberties Safeguard Act.
Now, three more states have joined their fellow 2A guardians in taking preemptive measures against unconstitutional measures surely to be imposed by Biden and his anti-gun cronies.
Patrick Svitek of the Texas Tribune reports in a Tweet that Gov. Greg Abbott “wants to make TX a ‘2A sanctuary state’ this session ‘so that no gov't official at any level can come & take your gun away from you despite those ppl who say, 'Heck yes, we're gonna take your gun.' We're gonna say, 'Heck no, you cannot take ppl's guns’ in TX,”
In Arizona, too, lawmakers are making moves to preserve their gun rights. State Rep. Leo Biasiucci filed the Second Amendment Firearm Freedoms Act last week, reports mdjonline.com. According to the bill’s language, the law would enact:
AN ACT, LAW, TREATY, ORDER, RULE OR REGULATION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT THAT VIOLATES AMENDMENT II OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES IS NULL, VOID AND UNENFORCEABLE IN THIS STATE.
THIS STATE AND ALL POLITICAL SUBDIVISIONS OF THIS STATE ARE PROHIBITED FROM USING ANY PERSONNEL OR FINANCIAL RESOURCES TO ENFORCE, ADMINISTER OR COOPERATE WITH ANY ACT, LAW, TREATY, ORDER, RULE OR REGULATION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT THAT VIOLATES AMENDMENT II OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.
And in Iowa, Republicans are working “to bring a constitutional amendment before voters in the 2022 general election … that would write the right to keep and bear arms into the Iowa Constitution,” reports qctimes.com.
It will certainly be an exciting year for gun rights, and from the looks of things, something tells me Biden won’t have an easy time enforcing his gun control agenda.
