Governor of Alaska Signs HB 69, Nullifies Federal Gun Laws, NDAA Indefinite Detention, REAL ID Act

“The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States  guarantees to the states and their people all powers not granted to the federal  government elsewhere in the constitution and reserves to the state and people of  Alaska certain powers as they were intended at the time that Alaska was admitted to  statehood in 1959; the guaranty of those powers is a matter of contract between the state and people of Alaska and the United States as of the time that the compact with the United States was agreed to and adopted by Alaska and the United States in 1959….” -SECTION 1 (2B)

Following the hard work of Alaskans, the legislature, and Americans around the country, and with one swift signature from Alaskan Governor Sean Parnell, HB 69 has:

  1. Made Alaska the second state to successfully complete the nullification of the national defense authorization act’s sections 1021 and 1022
  2. Declared tyrannical federal gun laws infringing upon the 2nd amendment enumerated Rights unenforceable and unconstitutional, including barring any state resources or participation
  3. Stopped and forbidden any participation or implementation of the REAL ID Act / National ID program

“The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph” -Thomas Paine 

The signed legislation, Alaska HB 69, which is now officially law, is summarized:

“Prohibiting state and municipal agencies from using assets to implement or aid in the implementation of the requirements of certain federal statutes, regulations, rules, and orders  that are applied to infringe on a person’s right to bear arms or right to due process or that  implement or aid in the implementation of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005; exempting  certain firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition in this state from federal regulation;  declaring certain federal statutes, regulations, rules, and orders unconstitutional under the  Constitution of the United States and unenforceable in this state; requiring the attorney  general to file any legal action to prevent implementation of a federal statute, regulation, rule, or order that violates the rights of a resident of the state; and providing for an effective date.”

    Nullification, according to Virginia v. United States 1870, is unconstitutional.

    Now if they only had the “cojones” to do that down at the state capital in Austin, Texas. Happy day for you folks up there. 10th amendment!!!!! Hoorah!!!!!

    I find it ironic that people who would be the first to howl about how their constitutional rights are being violated and personal liberties curtailed are also the first in line to support a state “law” that is grossly unconstitutional. State laws such as this Alaska effort are simply the height of political grandstanding, and will only accomplish two things: They will inflame passions about gun ownership unnecessarily, and it will waste taxpayer money to defend a flawed “law” that will ultimately be overturned) in the courts.
