This is not about secession, at all. In fact, it is an attempt to avoid such. States actually using the power given them in the constitution within the union. This is the only way we will be able to control the federal government - by asserting States' rights within the legal system. Secession is economically disastrous (interstate commerce) unless many states join together to do this. The only time secession is a viable option is if the federal government is successful in forcibly (by physical force) stopping states from enforcing legal laws - like this one.
