To Amend the Code of Laws of (STATE), (YEAR), by adding (SECTION) so as to make findings of the General Assembly in regard to a person’s right to keep and bear arms, to provide that no federal official or agent may require registration of purchasers of firearms or ammunition within the boundaries of this state, and to provide penalties for violation of this section which is a felony.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of (STATE):
SECTION 1. Chapter (#), Title (#) of the (YEAR) Code is amended by adding:
“Section (#). (A) The General Assembly of the State of (STATE) finds:
(1) The Tenth Amendment codifies in law that the only powers which the Federal Government may exercise are those that have been delegated to it in the Constitution of the United States;
(2) No authority was given to the United States to limit or restrict the right of the citizens of this State to keep and bear arms;
(3) The United States Congress and all federal agencies are further expressly prohibited from infringing upon the rights of the citizens of this State to keep and bear arms by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States which states:
‘A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.’;
(4) The 90th United States Congress attempted to exceed its authority in violation of Article II of the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution in purporting to pass the so-called ‘gun registration bill’ in the form of Public Law 90-168;
(5) Federal agents have flouted the United States Constitution and foresworn their oath to support this Constitution by requiring registration of the purchasers of firearms and ammunition, and these requirements violate the limits of authority placed upon the federal agents by the United States Constitution and are dangerous to the liberties of the people; and
(B) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no official, agent, or employee of the United States government or any employee of a corporation providing services to the United States government,Â may require registration of purchasers of firearms or ammunition within the boundaries of this State.
(C) Any person violating the provisions of this subsection (B) is guilty of a felony and upon conviction must be punished by a fine not exceeding five (5) thousand dollars, or a term of imprisonment not exceeding five (5) years, or both.
(D) Any aggrieved party shall also have a private action against any person violating the provisions of subsection (B).”
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
