Republican-Dominated South Dakota Legislature Fails Constitution, Maintains Status Quo

PIERRE, S.D. (March 28, 2016) – South Dakota State House and Senate leadership maintained the unconstitutional status quo. It killed five bills that would have blocked the federal enforcement of unconstitutional policies, squandering several golden opportunities for common sense reform in the Mount Rushmore State.

The rundown of key legislation that failed in South Dakota this year is as follows:


Final Arizona Committee Passes Bill Setting Foundation to Reject and Block all new Federal Gun Control

PHOENIX, Ariz. – (Mar. 24, 2016) – Today, an important Arizona Senate committee passed a bill to prohibit the state from using personnel or resources to enforce any new federal gun control measures, setting the foundation to nullify them in practice within the state. 


Tennessee House Committee Passes Bill Setting Stage to Reject Gun Control by International Law or Treaty

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 22, 2016) – Today, a House committee passed a bill taking a first step toward withdrawing state resources and personnel from enforcing gun control based on international law or treaties. Passage into law would set the foundation to block such gun control in effect.
