Local Communities Taking Stand Against Feds; Introducing 2nd Amendment Preservation Acts

States across the United States are adopting their own versions of the Second Amendment Preservation Act, which 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”. More than half of all the states have introduced either their own 2nd Amendment Preservation bills or similar legislations such as the Firearms Freedom Act that would also protect citizens’ right to bear arms.

The most recent states to have introduced 2nd Amendment Preservation Acts are Tennessee, Alaska, Kansas, and Utah. As the fight to defend Americans against federal gun regulation, which undoubtedly is an unconstitutional action, more and more are looking to build safeguards around their borders and block out federal tyranny. Even more small-scale than states now that are proposing legislation are local governments.

Tenth Amendment Center recently reported on Lee County, Florida and Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania joining the 2nd Amendment Preservation bandwagon.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF LEE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the Board formally declares its support of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; that the Board hereby affirms that it will not condone unconstitutional infringements of that right; and, that the Board calls upon the Governor and the Florida Legislature to lawfully use their powers to resist any measure that violates the right of the people of Florida and Lee County to keep and bear arms,” states Lee County’s commission.

It has been and is continuing to be a glorious victory for liberty advocates to observe not only state lawmakers in favor of protecting residents’ constitutional and naturally given rights, but county officials as well.

Similar to Lee County, Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania’s commission recently adopted its version of the Act, which reads that, “any federal act, bill, law, rule or executive order that in any way infringes on our Second Amendment rights by attempting to reduce the private ownership of any firearm, magazine or ammunition shall be unenforceable in Susquehanna County.”

    I’m still proud to be an American. We the Americans need to stand together UNITED also against the Government putting FELONYS on all of our children, it was the first act against owning a gun.By the time all of our children are grown, no one can own a gun. 75 per cent of the prisoners didn’t do any more than we did on Friday nights just for fun.

    I’m Canadian, and I’m basically happy with our stricter gun laws and national murder rate that, per capita, is less than a single US city.

    That said, I’d hate to see Americans lose the right to bear arms. If ever there was a government that needed to have an arm population keeping it under control, it’s our neighbour to the south. The millions of armed citizens there is the only thing that holds back the government from turning the nation into a fascist police state, and I refer to either party. The constant whittling aways of constitutional rights over the last decade is almost complete. US citizens can now jailed without charge, have assets seized for a variety of reasons, have no right to privacy, have freedom of speech taken aways, and can now be killed by the government if the President says it’s OK. Only that pesky right to bear arms is standing in the way of total population control… Let’s hope is stays in place, because a government that will lie to it’s people to justify killing millions to claim their natural resources can’t be trusted if ever it gets off the chain. So Canadians should be supporting Americans’ right to bear arms.

    I really hate anti-American anti-freedom poisonous self loathing liberal government-worshipping fellow-citizen-hating anti-gun leftist loon freaks like Rachael Maddow and others of her ilk.
