Kentucky Firearms Freedom Act

Post by Admin on Wed Aug 25, 2010 1:56 pm

The Kentucky Firearms Freedom Act is modeled on the nearly identical laws already enacted in Montana, Tennessee, Utah, South Dakota and Wyoming. If passed, firearms and ammunition manufactured in Kentucky and sold in Kentucky would no longer be regulated in any way by the federal government. There would be no FBI background check and no BATFE Form 4473 paperwork. Kentucky would probably decide to have the state police run background checks, but there would be no federal authority or involvement over these intrastate sales. The 1934 National Firearms Act and the 1968 Gun Control Act would no longer apply to intrastate sales. By insulating ourselves from federal gun laws, any future federal gun ban such as the anticipated reintroduction of a stricter version of the previous Brady Bill would not apply.

The federal government, via the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) has already sent a letter to gun dealers in Montana and Tennessee, informing them that the federal laws supersede state laws. They don't. The federal government's limited powers were granted by the states, and correcting this abuse of federal power is exactly the purpose of the KFFA. The challenge to the BATFE letter has already been filed in federal court in Montana and is working its way through the legal system. We need more states and more individuals on board to provide the needed political support.

The Kentucky Firearms Freedom Act bills, HB 87 & SB 122, were filed for the 2010 legislative session by Representative Stan Lee and Senator John Schickel, respectively.

The KFFA would already apply to rifles that are currently manufactured in Kentucky, a DoubleStar AR-15 manufactured in Winchester, and a Bluegrass Armory .50 BMG Viper manufactured in Richmond. There is also a Remington manufacturing plant in Mayfield, where the model 597 .22 LR and .22 WMR rimfire rifles are produced. If the KFFA is passed, there would certainly be more firearms manufacturers that would provide quality firearms free from federal government infringements.

We may also decide to allow currently regulated and restricted items such as noise suppressors, aka “silencers”, which are considered a courtesy to your neighbors in many countries in Europe. How did our federal government decide we should pay a $200 tax, endure bureaucratic paperwork, and lose our privacy and rights to have a suppressor?

The purposes of the Kentucky Firearms Freedom Act are:

  • Support the right to keep and bear arms in Kentucky
  • Insulate Kentucky from future federal gun bans
  • Stop unconstitutional federal gun laws
  • Support existing Kentucky firearms manufactures
  • Encourage new firearms manufacting in Kentucky - JOBS!
  • Exert Kentucky state sovereignty
  • Push back against the anti-gun zealots in the federal government and the United Nations

The purposes of our Kentucky Firearms Freedom Act activism are:

  • Pass the Kentucky Firearms Freedom Act!
  • Explain to our state legislators in Frankfort that gun owners have massive political clout
  • Coordinate and help to build the gun rights coalition in Kentucky
  • Exercise our unalienable right to keep and bear arms
  • Get the federal government out of Kentucky's gun laws

This is going to be a lot of work, but it needs to be done... for our liberty and our gun rights.
