Today, the South Carolina House overwhelmingly voted in favor of S424, a resolution reaffirming sovereignty under the 10th Amendment. The final vote was 85-27.
The resolution previously passed the Senate, and after passing amended by the House, it returns to the Senate for further action.
Here’s a few excerpts from the resolution:
Be it resolved:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, claims for the State of South Carolina 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 United States Constitution.
Be it further resolved that the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, claims for the citizens of South Carolina and the State of South Carolina freedom from all laws and mandates that violate the rights granted under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Be it further resolved that this resolution serves as notice and demand to the federal government, as South Carolina’s agent, to cease and desist immediately all mandates that are beyond the scope of the federal government’s constitutionally delegated powers.
