According to some fact-challenged legislators and pundits in SC, all these states … Oklahoma, Wyoming, Texas, and Indiana which are pursuing nullification legislation … are doing it wrong! ’cause it’s against the Constitution! Can’t be done! Won’t work!
It is so discouraging the blathering we are hearing from Columbia. So ill-informed. So self-serving. I could go on.
Instead let me share the latest state to join in the fight for state sovereignty … MISSOURI! Posted at The Tenth Amendment Center:
Introduced by Missouri State Representative Casey Guernsey, with 61 co-sponsors, is the Missouri 2nd Amendment Preservation Act. House Bill 170 (HB170) would nullify any and all federal acts, orders, laws, statutes, rules, or regulations of the federal government on personal firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition.
The bill states, in part:
“Any official, agent, or employee of the federal government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the federal government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in the state of Missouri and that remains exclusively within the borders of the state of Missouri shall be guilty of a class D felony.”
Look at that. Nullification and penalties. Thanks Missouri, GO FIGHT!
Hopefully some of our legislators are drawing some courage and conviction from these states.
