TENNESSEE STATE REPRESENTATIVE SUSAN LYNN DISCUSSES CURRENT LEGISLATION AFFIRMING STATE SOVEREIGNTY AND PROTECTING GUN OWNERSHIP UNDER MARTIAL LAW, ON THE 20 - 24 APRIL 09 “FUTURE QUAKE” RADIO PROGRAMS
Nashville, TN – Tennessee State Representative for the 57th District, Susan Lynn (www.repsusanlynn.com), discusses legislation she has sponsored or supported in the Tennessee legislature to reassert state sovereignty and the limitations of jurisdiction of the federal government over the state in accordance with the U.S. Constitution, and protections of civilian gun ownership during martial law and emergencies, with host “Doctor Future” and co-host Tom Bionic, airing daily during the week of 20 April on the “Future Quake” program, broadcast on the Christian talk radio station WENO, 760 AM in Nashville, TN (and archived at www.futurequake.com). Representative Lynn explains her entry into politics as a spiritual calling, and as a typical citizen without any financial, business or family “connections” to facilitate her entry. She also explains the challenges present in conducting business within state legislatures, where representatives receive token pay, and typically work full-time jobs and perform these wide-ranging functions as a true public service. It is also shown that individual states have the broadest range of jurisdiction and breadth of legislative subject areas in society, with both federal and local governments being far more limited in scope. She takes considerable time in explaining the nature of the fundamental “rights” of the citizen, which are derived from God and not from the State, and that any entitlements are not deemed as “rights”, if they require the sacrifice of or confiscation from others. Rep. Lynn discuses in detail her submittal of House Joint Resolution 108, which reasserts to the federal government the state's claim to jurisdiction over aspects of public life that are not within the expressed powers enumerated to the federal government as clearly expressed in the U.S. Constitution, similar to legislative acts taken by a majority of other states recently to address the encroachment of federal power in recent years over state sovereignty, a trend which has also threatened the individual liberty of citizens. A notable discussion is also conducted concerning House Bill 1778, which protects the rights of citizens to retain their firearms and prevent their confiscation by state authorities during periods of emergency and martial law, an important piece of legislation which is obviously intended to deter the unlawful and unconstitutional breech of citizens' Second Amendment rights, as occurred during gun confiscation operations conducted by authorities during the Hurricane Katrina disaster. The interview concludes with an extended discussion about the duties and opportunities of Christians to participate in civil government, the proper Biblical guidance for Christians as to the nature of their compliance with the mandates of the State, and how Christians can help promote and strengthen a stable, healthy society.
