Bills nullifying federal gun bans were just passed in Montana and Arizona in a major victory for the Second Amendment.
On Monday, Montana’s State House passed a bill by a vote of 58-42 that prohibits enforcement of new federal weapon and magazine bans. Meanwhile, an Arizona Senate Committee gave their approval to a similar but more expansive version of this law by a 4-2 vote.
“The intent of the law is to allow Arizona to function under Arizona’s own power and not allow any current or future federal laws that go into effect the Second Amendment to affect people who live in Arizona,” Sen. Kelli Ward, R-Lake Havasu City, said of her bill.
According to Weaselzippers, Ward’s legislation will make it illegal for Arizona to enforce a federal law that the state feels violates the Second Amendment.
