It goes into effect on July 1st.

On Monday in Tennessee, the state House voted 88-2 to pass HB2389. Introduced by Democrat Rep. John Windle, the bill sets the foundation for the state to reject and block enforcement of gun control by international law or treaty.

On Tuesday in Mississippi, the state Senate voted 36-14 to pass a constitutional carry bill that also sets the foundation to reject and end new federal gun control by regulation or executive order in the state.
