Is Arizona NDAA Nullification Being Blocked?

EDITOR’S NOTE: Our inside sources have told us that HB2573 to Nullify NDAA indefinite detention is being “held up” by Rules Committee Chair, Bob Robson. We’ve called him and asked for clarification days ago. He has not called back. The following is an email sent March 13th to give him another opportunity to tell us that our reliable source is incorrect. We are waiting for his response. What are your thoughts on the next step?

Hello Representative Robson,

My name is Adam Henriksen, I’m a State Committeeman and the Arizona Coordinator for the Tenth Amendment Center.

I’m writing you in regards to HB2573, which addresses the 2012 version of the NDAA. The sections that this bill is addressing are sections 1021 and 1022. These sections allow the ability for U.S citizens to be detained indefinitely (kidnapped) without charge or trial.

HB2573 passed a week and a half ago in the House Judiciary Committee 6-2 with great support and was supposed to go through your committee (Rules Committee) afterwards. I’m contacting you on behalf of a few thousand Arizona citizens that are concerned with the status of our bill. We heard this and are hoping it’s just a crazy rumor, that you have no intention of letting this bill go through your committee!

Could you please let me know what’s going on?

Kansas House Votes to Nullify Federal Gun Laws by a vote of 94-29

(TOPEKA, Kan. – (Mar. 14, 2013)  The Kansas 2nd Amendment Preservation Act got the approval of the full state house today and will move on to the state senate for concurrence.

HB2199 would nullify a wide range of federal attacks on the right to keep and bear arms in the State of Kansas.  It states, in part:

Any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the government of the United States which violates the second amendment to the constitution of the United States is null, void and unenforceable in the state of Kansas

Sponsored by 50 members of the state house, the bill passed by a wide margin today.  The final vote was 94-29.

UNENFORCEABLE

If passed into law, HB2199 would nullify virtually every federal restriction on the right to keep and bear arms in existence.  In conjunction with Section 6a (quoted above), the bill defines what is meant by “the second amendment to the constitution of the United States,” and it isn’t based off a decision of the supreme court.

Oklahoma House Passes Firearms Freedom Act, 79-12

The Oklahoma Firearms Freedom Act passed the State House by a wide margin this week.

HB2021 would exempt firearms manufactured and remaining in the state of Oklahoma from federal law, federal taxation or federal regulation, including registration.

The bill passed 79-12 and will now move to the State Senate for concurrence.  (roll call here)

The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Sean Roberts (R-Hominy), finds its foundation in a proper understanding of the commerce clause.

“Regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the states under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.”

It continues, nullifying the unconstitutional federal expansion of the commerce power by reasserting state control over items manufactured and retained in the state:

A personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Oklahoma and that remains exclusively within the borders of Oklahoma is not subject to federal law, federal taxation or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of the United States Congress to regulate interstate commerce. It is declared by the Oklahoma Legislature that those items have not traveled in interstate commerce.

The Constitution states, “The Congress shall have power… to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes…The Congress shall have Power…to make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”

Nullification vs. Arrogant College Professors

In the article, “Bills put focus on state’s rights“, Jonathan Shorman at the Springfield News Leader writes about several recent measures introduced in Jefferson City that seek to “invalidate” Federal Law within the borders of our State.

“Nullification is the idea that states can and should refuse to follow federal laws they see as unconstitutional,” Shorman writes. “A News-Leader analysis of proposed legislation shows that almost 20 bills introduced this year either seek to invalidate existing federal law or stop enforcement of possible future law.”

The article goes on to discuss lawmakers like Sen. Brian Nieves, who recently proposed three bills to stop federal law. One such bill is Senate Bill 325, which declares several existing federal gun laws invalid in Missouri. Also mentioned is Senate Bill 150, sponsored by Sen. Brian Munzlinger, which prohibits enforcement of any federal gun law passed after Dec. 31, 2012. Also included in the liberty-minded group is Rep. Doug Funderburk, who has introduced, House Bill 436, which could put local and state law enforcement in direct conflict with federal agents.

Nulllification can lead to a State Economic and Prosperity Plan

Hear ye, hear ye.   Pull your chair up to the edge of the precipice. I have a story to tell…

Nullification can imply, if not be the road to  economic and prosperity as an action plan, demonstrating that State Soverignty is good the well being of its citizens.  Putting together three of TAC’s 10th Amendment legislations, plus creating a Health Free Zone in your  State could be the basis for revitalizing and promoting economic and prosperity for all in the State!

Based on a recent article, Create the first Health Freedom Zone in America. a live talk show referencing a couple great health reform ideas, Mike Adams has triggered an Action Plan for any state to move toward sovereignty. I am calling it the 2+2 plan= State Economic & Prosperity Plan.  Whether your State is nullifying ObamaCare or not, this plan opens the health field to competition, and creates a mecca for bringing commerce and prosperity to your State.

The 2+2 is a core strategy for state sovereignty and freedom.  The ‘+2′ part of the plan is a one-two punch for health, wealth and prosperity, but not self-reliance and the full blessings of liberty for you and your progeny.  Together, they are almost invincible.

The first ‘2′ in the “2+2″ is based on sovereignty principles for any state, country or wannabe self-sustaining jurisdiction. The ‘+2′ is viable actions a state can take.  Both 2′s in the ’2+2′ are things a state can do using legislation, the Tenth Amendment, honor ‘the blessings of freedom,’ and create a viable economy in these trying and surely to become darker times ahead.

There are two fundamental principles for creating a viable self sustaining, self reliant and self standing state:  gaining control of the Purse & Sword. This is based on the solid work of Dr Vieira, the constitutional lawyer who advances this theme (video).  TAC has been tracking this, the Purse idea via the Constitutional Tender legislation and the Sword via the Defend the Guard legislation tracking .
