TNMcNairycourthouseThe McNairy County Commission in Tennessee will take up the issue of their pending 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolution again on Monday, April 8. The resolution was tabled last month over concern that the resolution was unconstitutional due to a recent attorney general opinion.

McNairy County 2nd Amendment Preservation Resolution Tabled Until April

This concern is irrelevant, as resolutions are not legally binding and as such there is no conflict.

McNairy County’s resolution is modeled after the resolution passed by Madison County. It states:

“Whereas, the McNairy County Board of Commissioners declares that all federal acts, laws, orders, rules, regulations – past, present or future – in violation of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States are not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violate its true meaning and intent as given by the Founders and Ratifiers; and are hereby declared to be invalid in this county, shall not be recognized by this county, are specifically rejected by this county, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this county…”
