"A mere nullity" is the perfect way to describe most acts of Congress on the books. It's time to treat them that way, too. #constitution #10thAmendment #nullify #libertarian #quotes

Today, the Idaho House gave final approval to a bill that would further restrict state enforcement of future federal gun control. Enactment as law would represent a second step toward neutering future federal gun laws in Idaho. The Senate Affairs Committee introduced Senate Bill 1205 (S1205) on April 14. The legislation would build upon a law enacted in 2014 that prohibits state enforcement of acts passed after that date relating to personal firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition. The current law prohibits officials, agents, or employees of the state or its political subdivisions from knowingly and willfully ordering any other official, agent, or employee of the state or a political subdivision of the state from enforcing a federal executive order, agency order, law, statute, rule or regulation if contrary to the provisions of section 11, Article I, of the Constitution of the state of Idaho. S1205 would expand the prohibition on enforcement, adding provisions prohibiting “all Idaho government entities” from “using any personnel, funds, or other resources to enforce, administer, or support the enforcement of any executive order, agency order, treaty, law, rule, or regulation of the United States government upon a firearm, firearm component, firearm accessory, or ammunition if contrary to the provisions of section 11, Article I of the Constitution of the state of Idaho.” The proposed law would also authorize the state attorney general to enforce provisions of the law. On April 20, the Senate passed S1205 by a party-line vote of 28-7. Today, the House concurred with another party-line vote of 55-11. #2ndAmendment #10thAmendment #libertarian #idaho #constitution https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/05/to-the-governor-idaho-passes-bill-taking-second-step-against-future-federal-gun-control/

On Monday, the Tennessee House gave final approval to a bill that would prohibit “no-knock” warrants and take a step toward nullifying several Supreme Court opinions in practice and effect. Sen. Mike Bell (R-Riceville) introduced Senate Bill 1380 (SB1380) on Feb. 11. The legislation would make several policing reforms, including a ban on so-called “no-knock” warrants. Under the proposed law, a magistrate would be prohibited from issuing a search warrant, “which expressly authorizes a peace officer to dispense with the requirement to knock and announce the peace officer’s presence prior to execution of the warrant.” Last month, the full Senate passed the bill by a vote of 33-0. On Monday, the House substituted the Senate bill for the House version and then approved the measure 90-0. It now moves to Gov. Bill Lee’s desk for his consideration. The proposed law would also place limits on police use of choke-holds, require Tennessee law enforcement agencies to develop policies on de-escalation, institute reporting requirements relating to the use of force, and clarify policies on firing at fleeing vehicles. #tennessee #10thAmendment #libertarian #policestate #constitution https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/05/to-the-governor-tennessee-passes-bill-to-prohibit-no-knock-warrants/

The new North Dakota law prohibits a state agency or political subdivision, along with law enforcement officers or individuals employed by a state agency or political subdivision, from providing assistance to a federal agency or official, or from acting independently with respect to the investigation, prosecution, or enforcement of a violation of a federal statute, order, rule, or regulation purporting to regulate a firearm, firearm accessory, or firearm ammunition enacted after January 1, 2021, if the federal action more restrictive than state law. The House passed the final version of HB1383 by an 80-12 vote. The Senate approved the measure 40-7. With Gov. Burgum’s signature, the law went into immediate effect. The law includes language that could be a pretty significant loophole. State or local agents can cooperate with the enforcement of banned future federal gun control if a federal court finds probable cause that “a national security threat exists.” It also gives law enforcement wiggle room to continue working on joint state/federal task forces when federal gun control is incidentally enforced. #2ndAmendment #10thAmendment #libertarian #constitution #northdakota https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/05/signed-by-the-governor-north-dakota-takes-first-step-against-future-federal-gun-control/
