Local Communities Taking Stand Against Feds; Introducing 2nd Amendment Preservation Acts
by Ali Papademetriou
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.
“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.”
