Looks Like they get it. Two very Pro 2nd Amend. Legislative Actions.


The first is SB 1908, the "Second Amendment Protection Act" which prohibits the sale of micro-stamped ammunition or firearms within this state. The intent here is to prevent passage of the "Ammunition Accountability Act," which requires said micro-stamping. The second, and more important of the two, is SB 1644 the "Tennessee Firearms Freedom Act" which essentially says that, under the Ninth and 10th amendments of the U.S. Constitution, the federal government does not have the authority to regulate commerce within the state of Tennessee. As such it does not have the authority to regulate the production of firearms within this state as long as those weapons are manufactured, sold, and retained within this state.

Wow! This is going well. The States are trying to through a pre-planned block to any future Fed bill such as HR 45. First the various states signing on legislation protecting States rights, and now a more detailed challenge to some of the pet projects the lefties want to add to HR 45 and the McCarthy bill.

So does that mean that a guy in Tennessee could buy an automatic weapon that was also manufactured in Tennessee if the state says that's okay and denies the feds the ability to regulate it?

I can't see the feds being too happy with that one.
