The Firearms Freedom Act (FFA) is sweeping the Nation.
Originally introduced and passed in Montana, the FFA declares
that any firearms made and retained in-state are beyond the
authority of Congress under its constitutional power to regulate
commerce among the states.
Since its passage in Montana, a clone of the Firearms Freedom
Act has been enacted in Tennessee, and has been introduced in
the legislatures of Alaska, Texas, South Carolina, Minnesota and
Florida. Legislators in many other states have announced that
they will introduce FFA clones when their legislatures next convene.
The FFA is primarily a Tenth Amendment challenge to the powers
of Congress under the "commerce clause," with firearms as the
object - it is a state's rights exercise.
