Alabama Senate: We Won’t Enforce Federal Gun Laws
April 30, 2013 by Sam Rolley
By a 24-6 margin, the Alabama State Senate just passed a bill that, if approved by the State’s lower chamber, would nullify all Federal gun control measures that are in “violation of the Second Amendment.”
Alabama Senate Bill 93 declares: “All federal acts, laws, orders, rules, or regulations regarding firearms are a violation of the Second Amendment” and “are invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”
If the Alabama House passes the bill and it is signed into law, no local official, employee of the State or State asset could be co-opted in in the enforcement (or assistance in the enforcement) of Federal gun-control measures.
The bill also puts measures in place for the State to work out any problems posed by not enforcing Federal laws, stating: “The Legislature shall adopt and enact any and all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement of any federal acts, laws, orders, rules, or regulations in violation of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.”
