A big THANKS to MrStep!
 
It's a LOT of work getting the links and doing the research and unfortunately, many sites just take the info and present it as if THEY had done the work.
 
The million dollar question now is WHY the states (with the exception of Hawaii) are introducing these bills, essentially reaffirming the 10th Amendment.
 
What is the purpose?  To create awareness?  To remind Obama?

*** 21 States already are, are now claiming, or are planning for declaration of sovereignty ***

Wow… it will be interesting to see how this turns out… it’s about time people started stepping up and speaking out.  As people have pointed out in comments, all of these (except for HI) are explicit restatements of what has always been in place, but not necessarily enforced, as detailed by the 10th Amendment.  HI is actually aiming for total sovereignty as it is claimed that HI was never really a state of the U.S. to begin with.  However, I believe the intent of these bills is to let the federal government know that the states’ sovereignty will not be overwritten… say in case certain gun ban laws get passed… or other “War Time / Martial Law” type plans come into play.  Check them out:
