Our strategy takes a step-by-step approach, with each step building on the last, until all federal gun control is nullified in practice within the state.
All states (except Alaska, Idaho, and Tennessee) should pass this legislation.
In the first step, the state bans enforcement of any future federal gun acts, laws, orders, regulations, or rules. (We’ll call these “measures” from here on out) This legislation prohibits a state from taking any action, or providing any resources, to enforce or assist in the enforcement of future federal gun measures. Idaho was the first state to pass step one as law (S.1332), with Gov. Otter signing it in March 2014.

Idaho and Alaska should pursue these steps
The second step bans state enforcement of specific current federal gun measures.This builds on step one by including one or more significant federal measures currently on the books. For instance, a bill introduced in Louisiana in 2014 would have authorized possession of short-barrelled firearms without federal registration.
The third step prohibits state enforcement of all federal gun measures, current and future.
All local communities can begin this process immediately. With some sheriffs already announcing that they will not participate in the enforcement of new federal gun control, the time is now to get that on the books – so that a future sheriff (or police chief) can change course.
