Yesterday, the Tenth Amendment Center co-hosted a media conference call to update reporters on state and local resistance to the NDAA. One of the speakers, Green Party member, Progressive – Fairfax, CA town councilor – Larry Bragman – might have made the best statement possible on how to deal with the NDAA

“I think anybody who takes the oath of office in this country as an elected official has got to do what they can do to reverse, oppose and resist this bill, and that’s what we’re doing in Fairfax.”

Joining the show as a guest to talk about that media call – Blake Filippi, of the Rhode Island Liberty Coalition, and spokesman for the TAC during the event.

When asked about the states responses to the Fugitive Slave Acts, he mentioned, “The State of Rhode Island passed the personal liberty law, and essentially nullified the Fugitive Slave Act.  It forbade judges recognizing claims, it extended trial by jury, and provided habeas corpus to the slaves.”  He continued, “Massachusetts went so far that federal officials who took slaves through the Fugitive Slave Act called it kidnapping. ”

Kansas legislation will protect right to keep and bear arms

TOPEKA, Kan.  – As of February 1, 2012, The latest on HB2421 was a Committee Report recommending that the bill be passed as amended by Committee on Federal and State Affairs.

During this brief lull in activity, the Tenth Amendment movement has a great opportunity to help keep this important bill in the forefront of the minds of Kansas leadership. To do that, we ask that you take a moment to contact them utilizing the below information in the “Take Action” section, and politely explain why you are serious about the protection of our Constitutional rights. Remember – If the Firearm Freedom Act should pass in Kansas, it will undoubtedly encourage other states in upholding the second amendment’s right to keep and bear arms.

As HB2421 reads, “The tenth amendment to the constitution of the United States guarantees to the states and their people all powers not granted to the federal government elsewhere in the constitution and reserves to the state and people of Kansas certain powers as they were understood at the time that Kansas was admitted to statehood in 1861. The guaranty of those powers is a matter of contract between the state and people of Kansas and the United States as of the time that the compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted by Kansas in 1859 and the United States in 1861.”
