The Tenth Amendment and Pennsylvania

I became interested in the Tenth Amendment Center about a year ago.

The Tenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States was the tenth of the first 10 Amendments, also named the Bill of Rights and penned by the fathers of our nation.
They limit the federal government in its interference in our property freedoms and natural liberty.
They reserve rights that are not enumerated to the federal government to the states and to WE THE PEOPLE.

Amendment X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The Tenth Amendment Center encourages each state to organize to maintain those rights that are provided for WE THE PEOPLE by our Constitution. We see those rights fading each year of this administration but also over the last 200 years. Each law that has been placed over us, each non-elected agency that makes laws (regulations) take away our freedoms and rights.

I have joined this organization and receive its emails with news of the legislation going on in Pennsylvania that attempts to return those rights to Pennsylvanians.

I want to inform you of bills that have been initiated this week in our state and seek to return rights to the citizens of this state.

Pa State Rep introduces legislation to nullify federal gun grabbing-House Bill 357

Representative Metcalfe’s memo on this bill:


Posted: January 11, 2013 04:12 PM
From: Representative Daryl Metcalfe
To: All House members
Subject: Right to Bear Arms Protection Act
I am currently having legislation drafted that is similar to firearm legislation recently introduced in Wyoming. My legislation would prohibit the enforcement of any new federal restriction, prohibition or registration requirement for firearms, magazines, and ammunition. My legislation would also require the state to intercede on behalf of Pennsylvania citizens against any federal attempt to register, ban or restrict the purchase or ownership of firearms and firearms accessories which are currently legal products.I hope you will join me in defending the Second Amendment in Pennsylvania.

If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Wilbourn at or 717-783-1707.

Pa State Rep introduces legislation for Right to Work in Pa-House Bills 50-53

These are important bills for the citizens of Pennsylvanians.

Please contact your representative and tell him/her how you feel about this bill. Also call the representatives who introduced these bills and tell them how you feel!

  1. We’ve had similar legislation in Alaska.


    • tannngl says:

      Alaska isn’t one of the states I’ve read that has nullified any federal gun limitations. You should notify the Tenth Amendment Center.


      • We haven’t yet. The fire arms freedom act here was presented to the legislature last year, but died before it got to a vote. With a mere 90-day session, our legislature had more pressing issues to address. It’s on deck again for this year with a new legislature.

        In the meantime, one of our legislators has presented a bill to allow teachers to carry concealed in public schools.
