Tennessee becomes 2nd Amendment sanctuary state

The great state of Tennessee has taken a huge step toward becoming a Second Amendment sanctuary state. On Monday, Tennessee’s House of Representatives passed a resolution reinforcing constitutional and legal protections of gun ownership.

The resolution was drafted in March. It compels the state to extend “a safe harbor to Virginians and other United States citizens whose constitutional rights are being violated by elected officials.” It specifically guarantees that private citizens have the right to own arms analogous “to those of their government’s basic infantry unit.”

The resolution goes on to outline the individual’s constitutional right to own “semi-automatic AR-15s, AK-47s, and similar firearms.” It explicitly underscores that citizens have the right to such arms to enact their God-given right to oppose state tyranny. The resolution makes reference to research on how governments in the past have become tyrannical, killing upwards of 260 million of their own citizens in recent history. The US Constitution was of course specifically designed to prevent this.

The resolution was spurred on by violent riots that set the Nashville Metro Courthouse on fire over the weekend. Members of the Tennessee state house of representatives voted 64-24 to send the resolution to the state’s senate.

The riots in Nashville and elsewhere in the state are part of the violent nationwide reaction to the police killing of George Floyd.
