Nebraska: 2A Sanctuary State

The movement for the protection of the Second Amendment is definitely picking up steam when it comes to the different states across the country. We have seen plenty of government officials who will work tirelessly to dismantle our God-given Right to Bear Arms. Countering this, we have seen the states begin to take control of the situation and provide a sense of security for their citizens. There have been plenty of courses of action that state officials have taken up. They have provided the citizens’ ability to Constitutional Carry, expanding on already proactive gun rights to legislation protecting gun owners from draconian federal laws. Now we have news that Nebraska is now taking things a step further.

Protection of law-abiding citizens is something that takes precedence over many things when it comes to the preservation
of the Constitutional Amendments. We have now seen that when it comes to protecting Americans, Nebraska has now claimed that it will be a “Sanctuary State, for gun rights.” Governor Ricketts of Nebraska has stood on a Pro-Second Amendment platform for a while now. In a report, he states that “Nebraska has always been a State that supported our Second Amendment rights,” noting further, “As a symbol of that support, I am signing a proclamation declaring Nebraska a Second-Amendment Sanctuary State, and with my signature, it will become official.”

Protecting the Second Amendment and every other Amendment while we are at it is something that is extremely important in this day in age. For a while now, we have seen politicians, whether on a State or Federal level, begin to advance against the Right to Bear Arms. We have been told that it is not “unconstitutional” and that our rights are not absolute
when it comes to this overreach. This way of thinking is why states have to stand up like the other states that already have and make sure that we as Americans are protected.

Furthermore, looking into Governor Ricketts’s stance regarding the Second Amendment, I would say that this is definitely a
commendable action on his part. What caught my attention was included within his statement regarding Nebraska becoming a sanctuary state, saying that “the White House and U.S Congress have announced their intention to pursue measures that would infringe on the rights to keep and bear Arms.” Also, the proclamation says that “the state will stand up against federal overreach and attempts to gun ownership and use in the Good Life.” This statement provides proof that when it comes to the Second Amendment, there are individuals willing to stand up for what is right and provide the necessary securities to safeguard against draconian law. I have said before, “when it comes to protecting individuals and their rights, more states need to stand up and fight for what is right.” The ongoing battle between the Federal Government and the states that deny the unconstitutional rulings needs to be recorded in the history books for future generations to learn from when it comes to protecting American liberty.
