The 2nd Amendment Preservation Act (download it here) is a simple, yet powerful tool for states to protect the right to keep and bear arms from federal infringement.
Based on James Madison’s advice, validated by the Supreme Court with the anti-commandeering legal doctrine, SAPA bans all state and local employees and resources from providing material support to the enforcement of federal acts on firearms, accessories and ammunition.
It can easily be modified to be stronger or less strong, based on the political climate in each state. Contact us to discuss options in your state.
