Tennessee nullification legislation of Obamacare and all federal gun laws is being pushed by lawmakers in the Volunteer State. On one hand lawmakers are pushing new legislation, that if passed, would gut the implementation of Obamacare. On the other hand legislation that is an expansion of the 2009 Tennessee Firearms Freedom Act was introduced yesterday, which is designed to protect Tennessee citizens from Congress violations of the Second and Tenth Amendment.
First, SB1680 is being sponsored by Sen. Mae Beavers (R-Mt. Juliet), along with eight co-sponsors in the Tennessee senate and a companion bill in the House by Rep. Mark Pody (R-Lebanon). The bills would prohibit the state, its officials and agencies from implementing or administering any part of the Affordable Care Act.
The bill reads in part:
No powers, assets, employees, agents or contractors of the state, including any institution under control of the University of Tennessee or the Tennessee board of regents, or any political subdivision, municipality or other local government entity shall be used to assist in implementing the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, or any subsequent federal amendment to such act
Georgia has introduced similar legislation and this comes on the heels of South Carolinas legislation to that is designed to gut the massive health care law.

Based upon what appears to be a large and rapidly growing islamic presence in Tenn all Tennesseeans are going to need their firearms.
If only more states had the cajones to do the same. It may be the only way to reverse the Marxist coup d’ etat!
Nullification! It’s a beautiful thing!
Rock On Tennessee!!!
Off topic, but when does preemptive self-defense become murder? Should all male Muslims 12 and over be legitimate targets?
Ah yes, the anti-Federalist states, AKA Con-Federate. States rights!
Ahhh, federal judges nullifying state laws, state legislatures nullifying federal laws... Life is good.
May Tennessee set the example, and not be the example.
Of course, Texas isn’t in session this year, so it’ll be a while til they can get around to this. Hopefully if a couple states manage to get this done, we’ll be ready to follow suit come 2015.
Thanks for the info on another thread about my new state (soon to be, hopefully). We’re looking at the tri-cities area so will be thrilled at the political climate compared to Mexifornia.
Anyway I thought you’d like this thread as well. It makes me proud to be wanting to relocate there.
I’d still like to see a Right To Carry law put in place as well. In a state where about a third of the rural residents do so anyway it would be nice. We do have Handgun Carry Permit that is fairly easy from what I hear. I just don’t like list nor the policy of paying $115 for a Constitutional Right :>}
I thought she was a ‘shall issue’ state?
Given some time Tennessee may go to a no permit required to conceal carry law. Especially if pressure is kept up to do so on the lawmakers. It hasn't been that long ago the General Assembly was under DEM rule.
“”I thought she was a shall issue state?””
Tennessee issues a permit named “Handgun Carry Permit”. That permit allows you to carry Open or Concealed anywhere in Tennessee that does not have a sign posted restricting such carry on that particular private property.
The last time the General Assembly and a former Ultra RINO governor tried for a state income tax it was followed by a massive revolt. Among other things the state Capitol got shut down by angry horn honking protesters circling the building LOL. That was roughly 12 years ago. State Income Tax is not a popular idea here amongst the politicans even more so now.
It will be great to have conservative neighbors like this!!!
