Multiple Governors Stand Up to Joe Biden's Attack on Second Amendment

As President Joe Biden announced new executive actions for firearms Thursday, several Republican governors spoke out and took action to strengthen individual Second Amendment rights.

The administration plans to target the proliferation of “ghost guns” and create a model for red flag laws for state legislatures, among other items that they believe would help curb gun violence, according to a White House fact sheet.

“No amendment is absolute,” Biden said while introducing his orders on gun control, according to Fox News.

“Biden is threatening our 2nd Amendment rights. He just announced a new liberal power grab to take away our guns,” Abbott tweeted.

“We will NOT allow this in TX. It’s time to get legislation making TX a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State passed and to my desk for signing.”

“I signed constitutional carry today because it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their #2A rights. Thank you members of the General Assembly and @NRA for helping get this done,” Lee tweeted.

“The Constitution doesn’t always use plain language, but when it comes to our right to defend ourselves, the Second Amendment is quite straightforward: ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,'” Noem said in a statement Friday.

“To top it off, President Biden indicated that his executive orders don’t go far enough, and he called on Congress to further infringe on the Second Amendment. In response to such threats to our rights, I promise that South Dakota will do everything in our power to defend your right to defend yourself and your loved-ones,” she continued.

While Biden can push as many ineffective gun policies as he wants, he should expect swift backlash on the state level for any actions deemed to be violations of Americans’ constitutional rights.
