(USNewsMag.com) – Mississippi’s Republican governor, Tate Reeves, signed a law on April 13 that expands protections for the Second Amendment.
When it takes effect in 2024, HB 1110, the ‘Second Amendment Financial Privacy Act’, directly confronts the Democrats’ plans to track and control weapons. Any infractions of this statute may be investigated by Lynn Fitch, Attorney General, who can issue stop and desist orders requiring compliance within 30 days or risk an injunction.
The measure expresses concern that the ‘International Organization for Standardization’ (ISO) has given its blessing to the use of gun codes to monitor weapon sales, which would infringe on the freedom to keep and bear arms of the people of Mississippi. Banks shouldn’t keep tabs on customers who are just making legitimate purchases, like weapons.
The measure makes it illegal for anybody or any organization in Mississippi to maintain a database of privately owned weapons or their registered owners. On April 11, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee (R) issued an EO for “red flag” gun prohibitions. He urged the Tennessee legislature to pass stricter legislation.
In response to the national Democrats’ unlawful gun grabs that endanger the privacy and safety of constitutional gun owners, Reeves said that his government will continue to fight back. People in the weapons business and gun owners from all over the nation are encouraged to visit their state to take advantage of the favorable laws that have been enacted to protect them. The Second Amendment is protected in Mississippi as long as he is governor.
Reeves went on to say that no one’s freedom to bear arms under the Second Amendment will be infringed upon in Mississippi. Some politicians’ long-term objective is to strip the 2A rights from Americans, and they plan to do so by whatever means necessary, regardless of the Constitution.
On November 7th, Reeves will face his most notable Democrat adversary, Brandon Presley. The governor is ahead of him by 46% to 39%, with wins in five of the state’s six regions.
