With Joe Biden using Executive Actions and the threat of legislation in Congress to crush our gun rights, more gun owners than ever before are asking about the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA.)
Here in Georgia, Georgia Gun Owners has been leading this effort from the beginning, having this legislation sponsored early in the 2021 legislative session.
Of course, the leftists across the country have been mocking SAPA legislation, and gun-control organizations in D.C. have insisted that SAPA couldn’t become law due to the Supremacy Clause.
But they all stopped laughing when our sister organization in Missouri — the Missouri Firearms Coalition — passed the Second Amendment Preservation Act into law last just last month!
Help Georgia Gun Owners pass the Second Amendment Preservation Act here in Georgia next session. Sign your OFFICIAL PETITION in support NOW!
SAPA legislation would nullify federal gun control laws here in Georgia by requiring our state troopers, county sheriff’s deputies, and city police officers to ONLY enforce guns laws that have been passed by the Georgia legislature.
So Joe Biden could pass whatever gun control legislation he wants, sign any executive actions banning guns that he wants, and they wouldn’t be enforceable by peace officers here in Georgia.
Sound too good to be true?
SAPA legislation is based on the 10th Amendment and the ‘anti-commandeering doctrine’ which states that the federal government may not simply ‘commandeer’ the state’s legislative authority and make them enforce laws that are contrary to state law.
What’s more, the United States Supreme Court has upheld the anti-commandeering doctrine for hundreds of years in a broad array of cases stretching from 1842 to as recently as 2018!
Clearly the Georgia legislature and Governor Kemp have the authority to enact the Second Amendment Preservation Act. The question is, do they have the political guts to do it?
But for this legislation to be effective, it absolutely must have teeth, or it will be ignored by anti-gun mayors and department heads here in Georgia.
You see, the idea of nullifying federal gun control isn’t new. When President Obama got into office, everyone was talking about the ‘Firearms Freedom Act’ as a way to stop his war against gun owners.
But this old legislation had a major flaw, however, in that it required the State Attorney General or the Governor to defend a gun owner whose gun rights were being violated by the federal government.
As we all know, trusting any Attorney General to stand in the gap for gun owners is just wishful thinking. Republican or Democrat, putting our security into their hands would be extremely risky.
Our SAPA legislation is much different. The legislation that we are having sponsored in Atlanta allows individual gun owners to bring law enforcement agencies who violate SAPA law (and their gun rights) to civil court on their own initiative to seek relief.
Doing this not only gives our SAPA legislation real teeth, it also protects Georgia’s peace officers in a very real way.
You see, from the day Joe Biden was sworn into office, we have been hearing from troopers, deputies, and city cops who are concerned about being ordered to enforce gun control — which would force them to violate their oath to the Constitution or lose their job.
SAPA legislation protects Georgia’s peace officers from having to choose between enforcing unconstitutional federal gun control laws or losing their job, by allowing them to point to SAPA law and reminding their departments that enforcing Biden’s gun control agenda would be a crime!
Simply put: SAPA legislation is our fallback point if Joe Biden is somehow able to pass federal gun control. It protects gun owners, peace officers, and the Second Amendment.
That’s why it’s spreading in ‘red states’ all over the country including states like Iowa, Wyoming, Georgia, Ohio, and Idaho.
But you and I both know that passing this legislation will not happen without a fight in the Capitol, not with the weakness that Governor Kemp and legislative leaders have shown over the years.
We’re going to need to pour on the grassroots pressure! So please sign your petition in support of SAPA NOW!
After your petition has been received, you’ll be taken to a confirmation page where you’ll be given the option to make a donation — and I hope you’ll be generous!
Joe Biden is actively coming after us with Executive Actions and legislation in Congress.
SAPA is how to we stop him!
Georgia Gun Owners
P.S. Georgia needs the Second Amendment Preservation Act, to protect innocent gun owners from Joe Biden’s war on our freedoms. SAPA law requires Georgia cops to enforce Georgia laws on firearms, ammunition, and accessories — ignoring federal law!
Missouri just enacted this legislation, and it’s time that the Georgia legislature did, too! Sign your petition in support of SAPA now!
