In 2013, Arizona was named America's #1 State for Gun Owners, by Guns and Ammo Magazine.
This week, Arizona legislators aimed to improve on that status, advancing nullification of federal gun laws and stopping state enforcement of them. Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward, along with eight co-sponsors, introduced the Second Amendment Preservation Act in the Grand Canyon State.
According to the bill, SB1294, all federal regulations which violate the Second Amendment would be recognized as "invalid and void in this state" (that would be any federal gun law).

Sweet. What most people don’t recognize is that police at the state and local level do most of the work when enforcing gun laws. This takes them out of the picture.
Yes, It kicks the fed out of state and local control.
If only we can stop the flood of those coming in from the west and south of us.
I know Kelli Ward. She's doing a great job for us.
Will it work as planned?
The tenth amendment lives.
Excellent! Way to go, AZ! Keep the heat on ‘em.
I love my state! Did a lot to get Kelli Ward elected in 2012, and damn she is amazingly active in not just preserving, but EXTENDING our rights. And she is also a BIG proponent of Mark Levin’s state convention process (was on his show last week). She is also an eye surgeon to boot, and a top one at that!
Relevant to my interests...
Obama did one good thing for Arizona. He removed Janet Napolitano from Phoenix, resulting in Jan Brewer becoming Governor.
Don’t mess with Texas and don’t try to roll ova’ Arizona...
I wonder if Brewer will sign it.
The feds won’t let Arizona enforce their immigration laws. So they have no business complaining if Arizona won’t enforce other federal laws.
How will the Superbowl stop Al Qaeda in Arizona if gun control is not enacted?
Open borders and gun control will help.
Does he support Arizona in this nullification effort?
Oh wait. Brewer has to sign it...holding breath....
“I wonder if Brewer will sign it?”
Yeah, Brewer is a big improvement over Nappy, but she’s not been as good a governor as Arizona deserves and needs. Now Arpaio would be outstanding!
The first read of the Bill in the Senate was today, it has not had a first read in the House yet, it has to pass both houses before it goes to the Governor.
Who cares what Mark Levin is against, he doesn’t live in Arizona.
The next thing to do is arrest the ATF bozos and dump them in the desert, without food or water, and tell these morons to fend for themselves. Make sure the drug cartels know where the drop point is. Problem solved.
Of course, but he is influential in the tea party movement and his opinion counts.
I'd like to know whether he supports this pro-2nd Amendment effort by AZ legislators.
No idea what Levin thinks about this particular case of nullification, however...
We need both nullification AND COS. Nullification is great applied for various offensive cases. It can do its job more quickly, and apply corrective force to runaway feral govt in specific instances.
COS is also needed as a more blanket remedy to the feral govt’s abuses, to correct whole swaths of govt overreach. It is like nullification on a grander and more lasting scale.
Nullification can be applied now on short notice, and repeated and repeated....
COS will take a couple of years, and will give more quantum leap relief.
I can hear the howls now from the Libs who back “sanctuary” laws for cities and states & refuse to enforce immigration laws.
I guess Levin wouldn’t support it, not that it matters:
(Arizonans are apparently “neo-confederates”)
AZ passed a Firearms Freedom Act several years ago (announcing that NO federal laws applied to intrastate guns). This is complementary, affirming that even in the case of interstate guns, only federal laws compliant with IIA are valid. Now if this passes, an interposition bill would be a good next step.
Church of Satan? Conspiracy of Silence?
Convention of States, or Amendments Convention
