State Sovereignty Bills

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In a dramatic break from the status quo, seven states of the Union have officially declared their intention to enforce the Constitution against the central government, and reestablish sovereignty and federalism which has been curtailed by federal forces and Congress:

ARIZONA
"The House and Senate concurring:
1. That the State of Arizona hereby claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution of the United States.
2. That this Resolution serves as notice and demand to the federal government, as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers..."

NEW HAMPSHIRE
"A Resolution affirming States' rights based on Jeffersonian principles... all acts of Congress of the United States which do abridge the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, are not law, but are altogether void, and of no force...

"any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution... shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America. Acts which would cause such a nullification include, but are not limited to... IV. Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition..."

The lamestream media has maintained an eerie silence on the entire issue, and could not be reached for comment. In other news, their circulation continues to plummet. The L.A. Times continued with its quarterly firings of staff, and the N.Y. Times is rumored to be on the brink of bankruptcy, shored up by a rumored infusion of cash from a wealthy Mexican financier and the proposed sale of its assets, including the Boston Red Sox. http://tinyurl.com/8dhz5b

FLASH: In breaking news, five other states have joined what appears to be a growing national movement to castrate the federal government's ongoing usurpation of powers:

MONTANA
"Sec. 4. A personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Montana and that remains within the borders of Montana is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration..."

"We hereby affirm Michigan's sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government..."

"The Missouri House of Representatives strongly opposes the federal Freedom of Choice Act because: (1) It seeks to circumvent the states' general legislative authority as guaranteed by the 10th Amendment of the United States Constitution..."

WASHINGTON
"...and, That this serve as a notice and demand to the federal government to maintain the balance of powers where the Constitution of the United States established it and to cease and desist, effective immediately, any and all mandates that are beyond the scope of its constitutionally delegated powers."

YOUR state isn't on this list? Then it's time to ACT, at last. Call your local gun-rights group, or legislators, and demand a state-protection act this year! The more states that do, the more pressure we can legitimately bring to halt federal erosion of our rights. Do it before gun-ban laws reach the floor of Congress, like, before tomorrow.

I had added, but the legislative aides who do the drafting removed:

"Any person, or any person with a government agency under that person's control, attempting to enforce a federal law, regulation, policy or precedent against residents of Arizona, in contravention of, in conflict with, or infringing upon this act, shall be fined, not to exceed $100,000, and imprisoned for not more than five years, per occurrence."

Texas has also initiated a sovereignty bill. Not surprising. Google "HCR 50" to read its contents and track its progress.
