The Alabama State legislature is warning the federal government and other to back off on gun control legislation. On Tuesday, the Alabama State Senate passed legislation that declared “All federal acts, laws, orders, rules or regulations regarding firearms are a violation of the Second Amendment.”
The vote was 24-6 and also declared that all federal laws in violation of the Second Amendment (which are all of them) would be considered null and void in Alabama.
We need more states to do this. I hope more will follow.
Republican Senator Paul Sanford of Huntsville confirmed that the legislation was the result of hundreds of emails and calls he received from his constituents in north Alabama. Those constituents were concerned about the threatening manner in which Congress has been hell-bent on gun control legislation. Especially new gun restrictions, including a ban on multiple weapons, such as Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) had put forth.
This is why your phone calls, letters and emails mean so much. We, the People have to take action. Everyone in a friendly gun state should let their legislatures know just what they think and feel on the House and the Senate’s violation of our 2nd Amendment rights. The system can work if people get off their butts and do something.
