Information: This has the language of another 2nd Amendment Bill we support HB 182, but it goes a step further, in fact some might call it the 10th Amendment on steroids to protect the 2nd Amendment. It quotes the Kentucky and US Constitutions on the Right to Bear Arms as well as a court case that states local and state agencies cannot be used against citizens to enforce federal policy. This bill also cites a couple of Articles in the US Constitution about federal overreach, as well as the 10th Amendment. But it even goes a step further and basically calls out President’s Obama’s unconstitutional Executive Orders on gun control.
This bill should have probably been assigned to the House Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee. The Representative chairing that committee is more than likely not for this legislation, but based on how he conducts himself it would have possibly been given a better chance at a fair hearing. However, the old chair of that committee Darryl Owens has now replaced John Tilly as the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, this means it will take EXTREME PRESSURE in order for this bill to see any daylight. *Representative Owens seems to have made it his personal mission of being an adversary to most of the Legislation TBK supports. Stumbo’s appointment of Owens to this position and his assignment of this bill to this committee shows how obstinate Stumbo has become, especially since the last election. He seems to be an unwilling party to co-operative government.
*With the exceptions of HB 70 and HB 40. We will send Alerts about these bills at a later time, they will pass the House no problem.
