Totally Dissolved: The Lee Resolution and Independence

Totally Dissolved: The Lee Resolution and Independence June 7, 1776: Following instructions from Virginia's Fifth Revolutionary Convention, Richard Henry Lee introduced a resolution in the Second Continental Congress to declare independence, along with a call to form foreign alliances, and a “plan for confederation.” As Mercy Otis Warren described it, “Their transactions might have been legally styled treasonable, but loyalty had lost its influence, and power its terrors.” Path to Liberty: June 7, 2021 #history #liberty #libertarian #founders #americanrevolution

Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House passed a bill that would ban state and local enforcement of most federal gun control; past, present and future. Enactment into law would represent an important first step toward bringing those measures to an end within the state. A coalition of nine Republicans introduced Senate Bill 154 (SB154) on Feb. 4. As passed by the House last week, the legislation would prohibit any political subdivision of the state, and any person acting under the color of state, county, or municipal law, from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer, or cooperate with any law, act, rule, order, or regulation of the United States Government or presidential executive order that is inconsistent with any state law regarding the regulation of firearms, ammunition, magazines or the ammunition feeding devices, firearm components, firearms supplies, or knives. The proposed law further stipulates that “silence in the New Hampshire Revised Statutes Annotated pertaining to a matter regulated by federal law shall be construed as an inconsistency for the purposes of this chapter.” On June 3, the House passed this significantly expanded version of SB154 by a 199-177 vote. #2ndAmendment #10thAmendment #libertarian #newhampshire #constitution https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/06/new-hampshire-house-passes-bill-to-end-state-enforcement-of-federal-gun-control/
