AR: Second Amendment Sanctuary Bill Heads to Second Chamber!

Arkansas legislators are pushing to protect your Second Amendment rights from Biden’s gun control agenda! 

ThArkansas Sovereignty Act of 2021 (SB 298/HB 1435) — sponsored by Senator Gary Stubblefield and Representative Brandt Smith, respectively — is challenging President Biden’s intention to impose a gun control agenda that will restrict your 2A rights.  

The Senate version of the bill (SB 298) just passed in the Senate last week. Now it needs to be voted on in the House! 

If this bill would become law, state and local government officials will be under order to NOT enforce ANY unconstitutional federal gun control laws, which will make it significantly less likely for federal gun control to be enforced. 

This is not the first time that state law has been used to combat tyrannical federal laws. In the 1800s, some northern states, such as Pennsylvania, passed Personal Liberty Laws which made it illegal for citizens of the Commonwealth to help enforce the Fugitive Slave Act.  

Likewise, Virginia and Kentucky threatened to nullify the Alien & Sedition Acts of 1798, which essentially jailed people for criticizing government officials.  

American states have historically fought back against all forms of government tyranny, and Arkansas is doing it now to protect our Constitutional Right to Bear Arms! 

We at GOA are doing all we can to help get these passed, but we need YOUR help!  

Please email your State Representative, urging him or her to vote YES on SB 298/HB 1435 and support making Arkansas a Second Amendment Sanctuary!
