Red States Weigh Ban on Enforcement of Federal Gun Laws

More Red States are weighing a potential ban on allowing enforcement of Federal gun laws. Missouri, Nebraska, Montana, and Arizona already have similar laws. Whether or not they will pass muster with the Constitution is the job of the Supreme Court. However, the trend is occurring because the Biden Administration is attempting to steamroll Americans into rigid gun control that is neither wanted nor warranted.  Even Ohio is considering the move:

Republican Ohio state Reps. Mike Loychik and Jean Schmidt introduced House Bill 51 into the Ohio Legislature on Feb. 15, saying the bill was a protection for police officers who did not want to enforce President Joe Biden’s “brigade against Ohioans,” according to The Columbus Dispatch. Under the bill, federal laws that relate to the “possession, ownership, use or transfer of a firearm, accessory or ammunition by law-abiding citizens,” or laws that call for “confiscating firearms, accessories or ammunition from law-abiding citizens” would be blocked from enforcement, according to the legislation.

“Every police officer I’ve talked to in the last two years has expressed their opposition to ever being forced to become Joe Biden’s enforcement brigade against Ohioans,” Loychik told the Dispatch. “This bill protects those from ever having to make that decision.” Daily Caller

Montana has a law:

Earlier in February, Republican Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, saying that Montana would not enforce the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) final rule for pistol braces.

The letter follows HB 258, passed by the Montana Legislature in 2021, a law that blocks peace officers, state employees or employees of a political subdivision “from enforcing, assisting in the enforce of, or otherwise cooperating in the enforcement of a federal ban on firearms, magazines, or ammunition,” according to the legislation.” Tom Knighton at Bearing Arms

Iowa amendment:

The Des Moines Register observed that Iowans voted to adopt a constitutional amendment on November 8, 2022, and the amendment exceeds the gun rights’ protections contained in the Second Amendment.

The amendment says, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The sovereign state of Iowa affirms and recognizes this right to be a fundamental individual right. Any and all restrictions of this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.” Breitbart

The anti-gun lobby – and the DOJ – are actively attempting to thwart these efforts. The DOJ sued Missouri after they passed their law, saying “you can’t do that.” Then there is Anti-gun activist David Hogg  who recently seized the opportunity to tell everyone that “Americans don’t have the right to own a gun.” He is obviously not a student of American history, as when the 2nd Amendment was written all able-bodied Americans were considered the “militia.” We’ve often wondered if he just wants the attention instead of having a real motive based on the Parkland shooting.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

On Twitter user responded with a statement that echoed how ridiculous and stupid Hogg’s comment was:

Whether or not these states’ efforts will hold up in the courts is a question only the Supreme Court can answer. But the fact that states are passing such laws is something the Biden Administration might want to pay attention to – their anti-2nd Amendment agenda appears to be faltering regardless of “mass shootings” and fools like David Hogg.
