The state-level 2nd Amendment Preservation Act just got a big boost with an endorsement from Sheriff Mack and the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA).

On Friday, Florida’s HB733 picked up their endorsement of the CSPOA. Sheriff Richard Mack founded CSPOA, and he was one of the plaintiffs in the 1997 Printz case, which was the modern linchpin for the anti-commandeering doctrine.

Mack said his organization supports the Florida Second Amendment Preservation Act, and would like to see every state take this path.

“This bill is one more needed action in the growing movement to return the powers not expressly given to the federal government back to the States and the People, according to the Constitution. We are in league with this legislation, and we encourage every state to enact similar laws,” Mack said.

According to CSPOA legislative liaison Rick Dalton, the organization is in the process of communicating it’s support to legislatures around the country,

“Our members are on the front lines and this kind of law will aid us in standing firm in defense of the rights of the people we serve,” Mack said.

CSPOA just held a conference last week where all those present signed a resolution putting the federal government on notice that lawless and unconstitutional federal activities will not be tolerated where its members have jurisdiction, and such activities will be treated as criminal acts.

Florida Tenth Amendment Center state coordinator Andrew Nappi said he considered this a major step forward.

“This is a substantial attempt to push back against federal actions violating the Second Amendment. Representative Eagle has set an example for others who say they support the Second Amendment, but stop short of taking action.” said Nappi. “But as the CSPOA resolution makes clear, the time for inaction is over.”

The 10th Amendment

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
