Today, an Arizona state senate committee approved a bill that would virtually nullify all federal gun acts, laws, orders, rules or regulations. The vote was 6-3.

Along with twelve sponsors and co-sponsors, Arizona State Sen. Kelli Ward introduced the Second Amendment Preservation Act in the Grand Canyon State. SB1294 prohibits the state from enforcing “any federal act, law, order, rule or regulation that relates to a personal firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition within the limits of this state.”

“We’ve sat back and allowed the federal government to trample the Constitution long enough,” Ward said. “We’re going to pass this bill and stop the state of Arizona from helping the feds violate your rights.”

Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said that a single state refusing to enforce federal gun laws would make them “nearly impossible to enforce.” Napolitano praised Arizona’s effort in the current session.

After initial backing from the Tenth Amendment Center, SB1294 garnered support from the well-respected Arizona Citizens Defense League, along with national organizations such as Gun Owners of America and the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA).

“We are in league with this legislation, and we encourage every state to enact similar laws,” said Sheriff Richard Mack, founder of CSPOA and a lead plaintiff of the 1997 Printz case which provides the legal basis for the bill.
