North Carolina is taking substantial strides toward protecting the right of citizens to keep, carry, and use weapons.

As reported to The New American by sources in the Tar Heel State, North Carolina’s legislature is considering House Bill 886, appropriately titled the Second Amendment Preservation Act. The measure, authored by state Representatives Mitchell Setzer and Jay Adams, would forbid the enforcement of any federal regulation aimed at unconstitutionally abridging the right to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment.

House Bill 886 follows the counsel given by James Madison regarding the proper course for states whose sovereign territory is being encroached upon by the federal government.

States, Madison said in The Federalist, No. 46, possess a “means of opposition” to federal overreach: “refusal to cooperate with the officers of the Union.”

About 10 years later, Madison said that states have not only the right to resist encroachments of the federal government, but also an obligation to do so. “In case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted by the said compact, the states who are parties thereto, have the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose for arresting the progress of the evil, and for maintaining within their respective limits, the authorities, rights and liberties appertaining to them,” Madison wrote in the Virginia Resolution of 1798.
