Thomas Jefferson and the Louisiana Purchase

We’ve all heard the story about Thomas Jefferson going forward with the Louisiana Purchase even though he thought it was a violation of the Constitution. But there’s much more history to it, and that includes a proposed amendment, James Madison, Albert Gallatin, John Dickinson and even Thomas Paine.

On Thursday, a Louisiana House committee passed a bill to prohibit state and local enforcement of some future federal gun control. Passage into law would represent a step toward stopping certain future federal acts that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms within the state. Rep. Larry Frieman (R-Abita Springs) filed House Bill 118 (HB118) on March 15. Titled the “Louisiana Firearm Protection Act,” the legislation would bar state enforcement of certain future federal gun control that infringes on a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and Article I, Section 11 of the Constitution of Louisiana. As introduced, the prohibition on state enforcement would have applied to all federal gun control not duplicated by state law — past, present and future. The House Committee on Administration of Criminal Justice amended the bill to apply only to federal acts “enacted after Jan. 1, 2021,” and passed it by an 8-4 vote. #louisiana #2ndAmendment #10thAmendment #libertarian #constitution https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/04/louisiana-house-committee-passes-bill-to-ban-enforcement-of-some-future-federal-gun-control/

After a flurry of activity this week, the Arkansas legislature sent a bill to the governor that could prohibit enforcement of some future federal gun control, but some convoluted language in the bill makes it uncertain if it will actually play out that way in practice. A leading grassroots activist in Arkansas called the bill "smoke and mirrors." #2ndAmendment #10thAmendment #libertarian #constitution #arkansas https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/04/to-the-governor-arkansas-bill-might-end-state-enforcement-of-some-future-federal-gun-control/
