    Imagine it will be treated much like the federal government did at the beginning with medical marijuana laws. They'll bust a few people for full auto's & making their own suppressors but most of the people thankfully will not be bothered by the feds. I read Texas is looking into writing similar legislation. Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Arizona, Kentucky & a few other States will eventually pass the same type of law. Just like medical marijuana.

    Well, that pretty much sums up who has the ultimate power between the states and the federal government. The states...well actually The People.

    Does that also mean that The Constitution of the United States is second to each States Constitution?

    If so, I bet the fed doesn't like being put in its place.

    Interesting read....


    Lincoln’s Spectacular Lie by Thomas J. DiLorenzo


    "...Thus, all three of these founding documents — the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution — declare the states to be free and independent. Sovereignty lies in the citizens of the free and independent states, not the people as a whole. The founders feared mass democracy and sought to strictly limit its domain. It is patently absurd to argue that the government they created was meant to be a mass democracy of "the whole people." ..."

    kudos for Missouri if there weren't so many tornadoes and 20 feet of snow each year I might just contemplating retiring there... Sounds like my kind of state, but there are no salmon or steelhead there!!!!

    The KC Chief's football team usually stink but they do have a huge supply of loyal fans there. :p The barbeque there is some of the best in the world. Yes, tornadoes can and do pop up anywhere at anytime and there are usually some pretty bad snow and ice storms in the winter months. Traffic stinks. Oh yeah, they grow some freakishly HUGE catfish there.

    I liked living there 12+ years ago. :thumbup:

    The same time as here in WA. Has about the same chance of the paper dog catching the asbestos cat on their trip through the classical version of "Hell".

    That's what the initiative process is for... especially since that process would make it CLEARLY the doing of We The People...

    As soon as you get all the dems to stop taking money from the feds with strings of ownership by the feds.

    It would be better if they read it instead of thumping it

    Kudos to the legislature there, doing the will of We the People

    An attempt by a state to "nullify" federal law and impose criminal penalties on federal officials trying to enforce federal law is just showmanship under the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Such laws are simply trumped by federal law.

    On the other hand, state laws that prohibit state officials from enforcing federal laws are probably valid. I think Texas is taking that tack. The feds can't order the states to use state money to carry out federal law.

    So, if the feds want to use their federal authority to enforce federal law in federal courts, they can do so. States can't stop them. But a state can order its law enforcement agencies and courts not to expend state money enforcing federal firearm laws.

    My $.02.
