State Rep. Tommy Hanes (R-Bryant) has pre-filed a bill in the Alabama House of Representatives that would nullify any federal act that unconstitutionally infringes upon the right to keep and bear arms.
If passed and signed into law, the bill would consider any overreaching gun control measure enacted by the federal government to be null and void in the state of Alabama.
“It’s about standing up for the liberty of law-abiding citizens,” said Hanes. “The Second Amendment is the thread that binds the Constitution. What this does is protect the people’s right to defend themselves, their family and property.”
Hanes added that the United States was founded by patriots who recognized that an armed citizenry is the best defense against tyranny.
“We will fight to uphold this right in Alabama,” said Hanes.
Hanes said his legislation is bound to draw fierce competition from his Democrat colleagues.
“The radical left will do everything they can to strip you of your liberty in their bid for absolute power,” said Hanes. “With the rise of radical Islam and the socialists’ open border agenda, now is the time more than ever to protect the Second Amendment. Lord forbid we ever have a President Sanders or any other radical progressive in the White House. But if we do, they will not infringe upon Alabamians’ right to keep and bear arms.”
