The Arkansas Senate has passed 2A Sanctuary legislation.  

2A sanctuary legislation is not going to stop gun control, but it will make it very difficult for federal gun laws to be enforced. These laws will bar local officials from working with federal authorities, and while that won’t stop gun control it will certainly help slow down any confiscation efforts by the ATF. 

From The Tennessee Tribune: 

Arkansas state Senate voted this week to block federal law enforcement officials enforcing certain gun laws and regulations, sending a bill to the state House in the midst of congressional gun-control proposals.

The Senate voted 28-7 to approve the measure, which will then be sent to the House. Arkansas’ Legislature is overwhelmingly Republican.

“All acts, law, orders, rules, and regulations of the United States Government, whether past, present, or future, that infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution and Arkansas Constitution, Article 2, [Section] 5, are invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state,” according to the text of the bill.

The measure will prohibit any law enforcement agencies in Arkansas from cooperating with federal officials to enforce federal gun laws that go in conflict with the rights provided in the Arkansas Constitution, according to Arkansas Online. Some state lawmakers expressed a worry that President Joe Biden would ramp up gun-control measures.

Ironically it was the Democrats who brought sanctuary laws to the forefront of American politics in an effort to stop ICE from deporting illegal immigrants. Now Republicans are using these same  laws to defend the 2nd Amendment.
