Colorado state lawmakers showed themselves as anti-gun zealots during the last legislative session, despite tenacious local opposition. In reaction, grassroots activists have initiated efforts to recall state Senator John Morse, gathering more than 16,000 signatures.
Clearly, at this point Coloradans can’t count on their state lawmakers to protect their right to keep and bear arms from federal infringement.
Bring your sheriff, local law enforcement, and your community together. Educate each other on nullification, the Second Amendment, and the Constitution. Teach community members that no state or locality is forced into enforcing federal laws. Then introduce model legislation to preserve the Second Amendment to your local lawmakers. Encourage your city, town, municipality and county officials to refuse to aid, enforce, or provide resources to the federal government when it attempts to violate Second Amendment.
Local noncompliance can create major obstructions and impediments. Federal law enforcement agencies lack the manpower and resources to enforce federal laws on their own. They always require the aid of state AND local law enforcement. As Judge Andrew Napolitano said recently, widespread noncompliance can make a federal law “nearly impossible to enforce” (video here).
It’s going to take work to ensure that this is how things play out. Here’s what you can start doing right now.
1. Contact your local legislators – County, City, Town – and urge them to introduce model legislation in support of the 2nd Amendment.
