Last year we witnessed many states introduce and/or pass so-called Second Amendment Protection Acts. We looked at each of these Acts, and delved into state laws that have been codified for a longer period using the title “SAPA” or something similar.

Unfortunately, too often voters hear about such actions by lawmakers through news reports or through the local channels of discussion on social media sites. And, we admit, it sounds fantastic! But what we have learned is that ‘in name only’ is more common than not.

We have prepared a comparison table for review and with the hope our members will recognize that ‘in name only’ legislation does little to nothing to protect the individual rights of constituents. In fact, too often, the title is used to protect business only and has nothing to do with protecting you from any overreach by federal laws or regulations.
