Nullify Federal Gun Control
On Monday, an important Arizona Senate committee passed a bill to prohibit the state from using personnel or resources to enforce any new federal gun control measures, setting the foundation to nullify them in practice within the state. It already passed the full House and moves one step closer to the Governor’s desk. (FULL REPORT HERE)
ALSO – A bill to help block international gun control treaties in Tennessee was resurrected and passed after being voted down last month. This is the result of heavy grassroots pressure. (report here)

Ed. Note: So accustomed had we become to federal over-lording, that any utterance of the word ‘nullify’ just ten years ago brought about cries of “Treason!” from all political corners. The preceding reports, however, suggest that the American People are fully awake and becoming more engaged in self-government than ever. Indeed, as we take up the challenge of political revolution against an entrenched, corrupt Establishment, nullification of unconstitutional federal laws and fed agency regulations by the States is gaining remarkable traction.
It is the opinion of this site that the Tenth Amendment Center has gone above and beyond advocacy and is today the leading activist organization concerning tenth amendment rights in this country.
