Missouri Bill Proposes Jail Time for Feds Violating the 2nd Amendment

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.

    Now when they are overridden by courts they can blame “them” and the courts and adnoun to the lounge and say we tired when push comes to shove, but if you will just reelect me it will be different nest time.

    It may be that Mr. Nowak is correct that the courts will override nullificaton bills; but that is not a reason for not passing them. The more states that pass them, the louder will be the message that growing numbers of people are of the opinion that the federal government has overreached its contitutionally authorized powers.

    I never suggested that not passing a nullification bill was a good idea. I suggest that if it is ruled as unconstitutional the SC legislators will take a we tried but they wouldn’t let us screed on their reelection tour.

    The more states that pass it, the harder for the courts to overide !

    It may be harder to override, but will be a great payday for all attorneys involved.

    Every court in contested states will have an opinion. An each of these challenges will require attorneys for both sides.

    What a great attorney full employment act. We the people will be paying them and nothing will change until the courts have made a final and definitive decision. Nothing will be fixed or settled until then.

    If history is any indicator this will take years and lots of money.
