Last May, Herndon, Kansas, Mayor Kenny Chartier introduced an ordinance nullifying federal gun laws in his town. The legally binding ordinance prohibits “any agency or person in the employ of the City of Herndon from enforcing, providing material support for, or participating in any way in the enforcement of any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of federal government regarding personal firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition with the city limits.”
The city council unanimously adopted it.
Chartier took action after Kansas Gov. Brownback signed a state Second Amendment Protection Act into law last April. The state law nullifies a wide range of unconstitutional federal gun laws. Passage represented a huge step in protecting the right to keep and bear arms in Kansas, but Chartier understood local support would play a vital role in the ultimate success of the new Kansas law, and he did his part to add another layer of protection for citizens in his town.
And the Herndon mayor didn’t stop there.
Recently, Chatier sent an email to “every town, city and municipality in the state of Kansas that had an e-mail address,”urging them to pass similar Second Amendment Preservation ordinances supporting the state law.Details
North Carolina has one of the toughest legislatures in the U.S. to pass bills through. Most legislation never makes it out of committee. Committees like the Judiciary Committee have up to five vice chairs and up to 40 members. This makes it even harder for concerned citizens to convince representatives to vote a certain way.
But don’t despair! Options to protect the right to keep and bear arms in North Carolina remain open. You can build grassroots groups to block violations of the Second Amendment at the local level, working through county commissions and town councils.
Of course, local governments won’t act without citizen input and grassroots pressure. The good news is a few dedicated individuals can make a difference at the local level.
That’s where you can step up to the plate.
Form grassroots local nullification groups. BDetails
