Red states are going to have to get even redder if they hope to remain viable bastions of freedom in the age of a mindless Joe Biden whose administration is being run by left-wing Marxist tyrants.
That is especially true when it comes to the Second Amendment.
In recent days, commissioners in Newton County, Mo., not only voted reaffirm the right to keep and bear arms, but also to empower their sheriff to arrest any federal agents who come around to enforce unconstitutional federal gun control laws.
That’s becoming a Second Amendment sanctuary on steroids.
Now, another red state legislature is stepping up to reaffirm the only constitutional amendment that guarantees the continued existence of all the others.
Fox News has more:
The Indiana House voted Monday to eliminate the license to carry a handgun in the state — an apparent victory, at least temporary, for supporters of Second Amendment gun rights.
House Bill 1369, which passed the House by a 65-31 vote and now heads to the Senate, repeals a law that requires a person to obtain a license to carry a handgun in Indiana, according to the Indianapolis Star.
It allows for any person who is lawfully able to carry and possess a firearm to do so without a government-issued permit or license, reports said. The bill specified that certain offenders still could be prohibited from carrying handguns.
Supporters of the bill argue that the permit process punishes law-abiding citizens and residents shouldn’t have to pay for a right guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
It should be said that the Second Amendment contains this clause, “shall not be infringed.” That means what it says it means — so anyone who isn’t locked up anymore and has served their time in prison ought to have their full right to keep and bear arms restored.
Beyond that, this is what red, freedom-loving states must continue to do: Double and triple-down on protecting constitutional rights from the tyrants in Biden’s White House and the Democrats who control Congress.
Because there is no reconciling with authoritarians.
