After Democrats in New York rammed a sweeping assault on the right to keep and bear arms through the legislature that failed to exempt police officers from the draconian restrictions, gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history. According to news reports, gun rights activists are urging everyone to defy far-left Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new registration mandate, instead urging authorities to “come and take it.”
In an article in the Kansas City Star, several law professors claim that the federal government is superior to state governments and that nullification — the right of states to refuse to enforce unconstitutional federal acts — is unconstitutional.
As state governments and federal lawmakers who take their oath of office seriously work to crush the Obama administration’s proposed unconstitutional infringements on the right to keep and bear arms, a wave of county sheriffs all across the country is rising up to protect gun rights, too. Dozens of chief law enforcement officers have already pledged not to enforce new gun control, and many have even promised to actively prevent the enforcement of unconstitutional federal statutes within their jurisdictions.
As a result of a social media campaign started by an airline pilot in Houston, thousands of gun owners and Second Amendment supporters rallied at their state capitols at "high noon" on Saturday to make their voices and opinions heard. The national media ignored them.
Across America, state lawmakers, governors, attorneys general, sheriffs, and other officials are promising to protect the gun rights of citizens in their jurisdictions in the face of the most aggressive assault on the Second Amendment in generations. Indeed, as the Obama administration’s unconstitutional agenda becomes increasingly transparent — backed by some Democrats and much of the establishment media — resistance to further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms is exploding nationwide.
