Old Dominion State Measure Would Say No To Obama’s Executive Orders

posted on December 16, 2015

Last Wednesday, White House Advisor Valerie Jarrett confirmed that President Obama is working on bypassing Congress to expand background checks. With movement on gun control seeming increasingly imminent, the following day Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall introduced HB83, which is based in the anti-commandeering doctrine most recently affirmed in the 1997 Supreme Court case Printz v. United States.

Specifically, the measure would prohibit use of the state’s resources to subvert the Second Amendment, block state enforcement of any federal gun-control legislation or executive orders, and bar Virginia from participating in any future federal gun registries. This legislation is an important step in ensuring the rights of state residents continue in perpetuity, regardless of who sits in the Oval Office.

Use Your Power!

HB83 will be offered on Jan. 13, 2016, for consideration during the upcoming legislative session. Virginia residents, tell your elected officials to safeguard your Second Amendment rights by voting YES on HB83. To find your lawmaker, click here.
