This just says the State will not enforce Federal gun laws that go against the 2nd amendment (in there eyes).  It does nothing to stop the Feds from enforcing those laws in our great state.

That's up to us.

I now live in a sanctuary county inside a sanctuary state.

I'm not a lawyer and have never claimed to be so.....Received a message from the Gov's office alerting that TN is now a 2nd Sanctuary State. If I understand the text correctly it only applies when the US or State Supreme courts make a ruling that the law, exec. order etc is unconstitutional. Is the law just a feel good thing that means very little? I'm thinking it may very well be that. For example if an "Assault Weapons Ban" is passed at the federal level and the US Supreme Court and TN Supreme Court do not elect to hear and make a ruling on the constitutional legality of the legislation the TN Sanctuary Law will have no affect. Have pro-gun Tennesseans been duped by our politicians? Seems that everything hinges on Supreme Court action. Even if the high court decided to take up a gun case it can take years before it actually comes before them. I wonder if this type of language is in other States sanctuary laws? IMO it is good that this law has been passed and it is pushback which is needed. Text from e-mail attached below.

>Last week, he signed the “Tennessee Second Amendment Sanctuary Act” which states that “Pursuant to the sovereign authority of this state, a law, treaty, executive order, rule, or regulation of the United States government that has been found by the supreme court of the United States or the Tennessee supreme court to violate Article I, § 26 of the Constitution of Tennessee or the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution is null, void, and unenforceable in this state.”<

Yes, its a bit like stating that we hold illegal actions to be against the law.  On the other hand, I wonder how long it would take for any of these state laws, regulations or resolutions to be retracted if the Feds were to threaten to withhold funds ...

I wonder if anyone’s ever thought about autonomous state status? LOL....

Yes, 11 of them tried that several years back.  Didn't turn out too well though ...

Well, if you believe the socialists, just because it failed before is no reason not to try again.
