In a preemptive strike against Joe Biden’s unconstitutional executive orders against gun rights in America this week, Arizona governor Doug Ducey signed into law House Bill 2111 on Tuesday night. HB211 bars Arizona law enforcement from enforcing unconstitutional 2nd amendment infringements put in place by any federal body that violate any state rights to firearms already on the books. This would include the executive orders by Joe Biden. Many are now calling Arizona a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State and hoping that their states will follow suit.
“Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill Tuesday evening that makes Arizona a “Second Amendment sanctuary” and bars law enforcement agencies in the Grand Canyon State from enforcing federal gun control measures, ignoring a last-minute plea from gun control groups urging him to veto it.
…The bill, sponsored by Rep. Leo Biasiucci, R-Lake Havasu, makes it illegal for local governments, the state and employees to enforce or cooperate with any federal law, act, treaty, rule or regulation that is “inconsistent with any law of this state regarding the regulation of firearms.”
The bill passed along party lines in the legislature.
…In an interview on KTAR Wednesday morning, Ducey said the bill protects “an enumerated right” that all people have under the U.S. Constitution.
“That (bill) has not changed anything,” he said. “That was a proactive law for what is possible to come out of the Biden administration.”
Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone told KTAR that the bill was confusing and would put law enforcement in an awkward position.
“I think … there’s political motivation. It’s one of those emotional issues, but as far as the impact on law enforcement, it will create confusion or challenges more than benefits or protecting the Second Amendment,” Penzone told the radio station. “The people who wrote it really didn’t sit down and have a thoughtful conversation as to the application.”
…Ducey has flip-flopped on gun control measures in the past: After calling for red flag laws, he retreated after facing criticism from conservatives. “
We must keep pressure on our local and state politicians because, as is evidenced by Ducey, it works. It is the only way they will every stick to any kind of conservative political compass.
