More States need to do that. States shouldn’t have to let the federal govt destroy their economies and infringe on the rights of their citizens.

States fighting against federal legislation and Executives Orders: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, Teaxs, Utah, Oklahoma and Alabama ...

Now, another state is joining the cause to restrict federal, unconstitutional laws – Alabama. The legislation known as the “Firearms Freedom Act” or formally Senate Bill 43 would “exempt from federal regulation under the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured and retained within the borders of Alabama.” Senate Bill 43 was introduced on January 11th and will be referred to the State Senate committee on Judiciary February 5th.

“The guaranty of [Tenth Amendment] powers is a matter of contract between the state of Alabama and its people and the United States as of the time that compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted by Alabama and the United States in 1819,” SB 43 explains. Tenth Amendment Center’s Shane Trejo points out, “Although this bill does not go after all possible federal restrictions on guns within Alabama, it is definitely another step in the right direction toward building resistance at the state level to malevolent power grabs from Washington D.C.”

Alabama’s SB43 goes on to state its neediness with regards to the State Constitution, “Section 26 of the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, secures to Alabama citizens, and prohibits government interference with, the right of an individual Alabama citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or herself and the state.”
