State lawmakers in Indiana and South Carolina have introduced bills seeking to nullify Obamacare inside the borders of their respective states.
At a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show, Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) spoke out in defense of the Fourth Amendment and promised to continue to fight against FISA.
While Vice President Joe Biden has been conducting a week of meetings on efforts to curb gun violence that seemed to be focused on nothing but more gun control, President Obama has signed a law that ensures lifetime protection for himself and his family, as well as the safety of future presidents.
As the Obama administration plots assaults on gun rights by “executive order” and legislation, proposals described as “very extreme” even by some Democrats, state lawmakers in Wyoming have another idea. Republican legislators are rallying behind nullification legislation that would void unconstitutional infringements on the right to keep and bear arms, even providing prison time for any federal agents who may try to enforce Washington, D.C., gun control in the state. Lawmakers expect it to pass.
The new bill, H.B. 0104 or the “Firearms Protection Act,” would nullify any new federal infringements on the constitutionally protected gun rights of state residents — who enjoy some of the lowest crime rates while being among the most heavily armed people in America.
The constitutional convention proposed by the Compact for America Initiative would pose an unacceptably high risk of damage to the Constitution.
