    Edit: AK, KS, and ID already passed similar legislation. The MT governor vetoed it when it came to his desk.

    Washington created one, but the voters apparently thought otherwise.

    This just like the pots thing. States said Ok but FED said no. Hmmm wondering what will happen. I love to see the ATF dismissed.

    Please post a reference for ID. I believed I have been keeping abreast of this topic, but I can find nothing similar. In fact, the ID legislature ignores the ID Constitution when it comes to firearms rights, particularly regarding concealed carry.

    Probably won't pass. Mainly because it would just be declared unconstitutional and cost the state huge sums in legal fees when challenged. This stuff is a huge waste of tax payer money. It is just political posturing. Federal law will still trump state law.

    Same thing they said about pot laws but 3 states are telling the feds to go to ...ah portland.:D Study states rights a bit and see if you still think that way.

    The feds agreed not to enforce pot laws. If they change thei minds those laws will fall.

    Not necessarily. In fact, the opposite has usually been true historically.

    Again pot is my evidence, states say it's ok and the feds sit on their hands.

    Thanks. I missed that one. [Can't find the egg-on-my-face emoticon]

    On close reading, this Act nullifies concealed weapons licenses. ID constitution section 11, states that No law shall impose licensure, registration or special taxation on the ownership or possession of firearms or ammunition. "Possession" is defined in ID jury instruction 421 as: A person has possession of something if the person knows of its presence and has physical control of it, or has the power and intention to control it.

    Food for thought that is somewhat off topic.

    This works in the opposite way too where states suppress rights while the feds sit on their hands. In Mississippi, I can't legally hold an elected office, even though I'm a law abiding, tax paying American citizen with no criminal record.

    The feds are supposed to guarantee our constitutional rights like the 2nd amendment yet state a local governments have taken that right away. At some point it might be you have to live in a state that will follow the constitution if you want a gun.

    True, I'll just have to find states that don't hate guns or ****** to live in.

    Please do not mention your religion in any way, shape or form as the moderators will close the thread. Please do not speak anti religion either as any talk of religion is forbidden under the rules of the site.

    My apologies, I was only expanding on the supresion of rights by states afforded to us under the Constitution.

    :D Nothing broken yet but you will find the rules will be followed here or they shut the thread down. No apologies needed but accepted because you gave them.

    Taken from ,The Dick Act of 1902.


    "All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy.

    The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. "
