NRA Staying Out Of Firearms Freedom Act Lawsuit

The National Rifle Association has been taking a low profile when it comes to the firearms freedom acts that have been passed by seven state legislatures and spawned a growing legal fight between those states, some gun advocates and the U.S. Justice Department.

The firearms freedom act was first launched last year in the Montana Legislature, pushed by local gun advocates. The law states that guns made and sold within a state’s borders are exempt from federal gun control under Congress’ authority to regulate interstate commerce.

Full Story – HERE

The states that have enacted the firearms freedom act so far:

  • Montana
  • Idaho
  • Wyoming
  • South Dakota
  • Utah
  • Arizona
  • Tennessee

I previously reported on the Firearms freedom act in the following two posts:

Not disappointed – this isn’t an exercise in gun rights so much as a message from the states that the feds are over the line and should get back on the other side pronto. It’s a response not to federal gun legislation so much as to the Raich decision; but without the complications of the drug war.

Marijuana is okay, but heaven forbid anyone make and keep a fully-automatic weapon!

Actually; it’s the reverse. The Freedom Act states don’t want the baggage attached to Marijuana, but consider the Raich decision to be (politedly) an affront against state’s rights. rather than muddy the waters by involving MJ, they’re leveraging the gun rights movement into a state’s rights event…

Disappointed? Not really. While these bills and legislations are wonderful slaps in the face to the federal government, they are scant more than a silk opera glove being wielded by a two-year-old. Basically, they are a political non-starter from every direction, and while I would love for the NRA to join in in the collective middle finger to the government, it is not going to amount to much.
