PHOENIX (Mar. 10, 2015) – Today, the Arizona state Senate gave initial approval to a bill that would effectively block any new federal gun control measures in the state by withdrawing all state participation and enforcement. The bill now moves to a third and final reading and vote by the Senate.


Nullification Video Series Update: Location Scouting at Recording Studios

The support for our upcoming nullification video series: Teach 150,000 people to nullify, was above and beyond what we had aimed for. This is allowing us to ramp up the quality of our production, and we’ll record in a professional studio rather than here in my apartment and home office. Last Friday, I toured a number of studios here in Los Angeles.


To the Governor’s Desk: Wyoming Right to Try Act Would Nullify in Practice Some FDA Restrictions on Terminally-Ill Patients

But, the Court will not agree.

The federal government, including the federal courts, cannot be trusted to shut down such a massive expansion of federal power. Congress cannot be trusted. New Republican majorities cannot be trusted. The Courts cannot be trusted.

The only way to stop Obamacare is through state and individual resistance. That is, nullification.


In Mississippi yesterday, the Senate Public Health and Welfare committee killed HB722 without a recorded or public vote. The bill would have allowed terminally-ill patients to try investigational treatments without full FDA approval. The legislation is supported by the Goldwater Institute and has passed in at least 5 other states. The Mississippi House passed it last month, 120-0. Inside sources tell us that Republican leadership in the Senate didn’t want the bill to get to the Governor’s desk, so they quietly killed it in Committee before the Senate could even vote on it.

This shouldn’t be news: If you want more liberty, Republicans aren’t your friends. That counts for both federal and state politicians. At best, they’re chess pieces that you can work to push in a direction that they see as popular.
