Arizona is leading the way to protect the Second Amendment for citizens!
On Wednesday, the AZ Senate passed legislation that declared any federal gun laws that violate the U.S. and State Constitutions’ right to bear arms unenforceable.
Senate Bill 1328 would also open up agents enforcing these unconstitutional laws to prospected lawsuits.
This means that citizens who are victimized by these “gun control” laws can sue in superior court.
Here's more on the new legislation from Breitbart:
The Associated Press reports that the legislation, Senate Bill 1328, which passed the AZ Senate on Wednesday, not only forbids the enforcement of egregious federal controls but also opens up enforcing agents to the prospect of lawsuits.
A provision in SB 1328 says, “Declares an act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the U.S. government that violates the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution or Article II, Section 26 of the Arizona Constitution null, void and unenforceable in Arizona.”
Other provisions in SB 1328:
States that a government entity, agency, bureau, employee or official, or a person working under the authority or orders of a government entity, agency, bureau, employee or official commits an impairment of a citizen’s right to bear arms by enforcing or attempting to enforce an act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the U.S. government that is null, void and unenforceable by this statute.
Allows a government entity, agency, bureau, employee or official, or a person working under the authority of orders of a government entity, agency, bureau, employee or official that commits an impairment of a citizen’s right to bear arms pursuant to this statute to be sued by any citizen in superior court for declarative and injunctive relief, damages and attorney fees.
Arizona is making it very clear that the state will not enforce any of Biden's unconstitutional gun control laws.
Republican Leo Biasiucci says that Arizona will remain "Second Amendment friendly."
More from the Epoch Times:
Leo Biasiucci, the Republican whip in the Arizona House of Representatives, told The Epoch Times’ “Crossroads” that the State House just passed a bill not to comply with any federal gun-restricting measures, and the bill will hopefully pass in the State Senate and be signed into law by the governor.
Biasiucci introduced a bill, HB 2111, which can be cited as the “Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act.” The Arizona House of Representatives passed the bill on Feb 24 along party lines, 31–29.
“We’re Second Amendment friendly. We love our law-abiding citizens, gun owners,” Biasiucci said. “So I have a bill HB 2111 … it’s very simple. It says if the federal government changes anything at the federal level, Arizona is not gonna play. We’re not going to use money. We’re not gonna use resources to comply—if they ban AR-15 and they try to come in and start arresting people. Not gonna happen in our state.”
“The courts won’t even mess with it, our law enforcement won’t mess around.”
He indicated that they are doing what then-Gov. Jerry Brown did in California.
In 2017 California passed California Values Act—normally known as “sanctuary law”—to prohibit state and local law enforcement officials from cooperating with federal immigration officials.
“It said if ICE comes in and tried to detain illegals, we’re not going to help. We’re not going to use resources,” Biasiucci said. “Then it got upheld in court.”
The federal government sued California in 2018 for the sanctuary law, but a District Judge dismissed it. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit upheld the district court’s decision, stating California has the right “to refrain from assisting with federal efforts.” The Supreme Court declined to hear the federal government’s petition in June 2020.
“So I said if that’s gonna be upheld, let’s use the same kind of language, but apply it to the Constitution, right to apply it to our Second Amendment,” Biasiucci said.
Biasiucci said it’s “really concerning” that President Joe Biden made some comments on gun controls from day one and could possibly change laws with “a stroke of a pen.”
