Tennessee begins to push back against NDAA tyranny

Tennessee, the Volunteer State, has begun to push back against the tyranny that is the indefinite detention provisions contained in the National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 2012, better known simply as the NDAA.
The state bills currently being considered could be one of the most significant steps taken against the atrocious assault on our most essential liberties embodied by the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA.
The Tenth Amendment Center (TAC), a group promoting states’ rights (something which I think is an honorable cause in these dire times in which we have an increasingly centralized, authoritarian federal government) reports that two bills are to be considered in the Tennessee legislature.
These include HB1629 and SB2669, both of which are set to be considered in the 2012 session.
The legislation could essentially nullify the troubling indefinite detention provisions in the NDAA by requiring federal agents to obtain written permission from the county sheriff before making any arrests in Tennessee for any reason.
So long as county sheriffs are actually doing their job and keeping people safe from an out-of-control federal government, this could be a major step forward.
