    BTW - this Wyoming thing will never be signed by their Governor. It's just a lot of fringe political theater.

    Ask California 'medical' marijuana distributors how that works out.
    amd other states are already responding ahead of Obama.

    Lawmakers expect it to pass.

    "We're a sovereign state with our own constitutional form of government," he told the AP. "We've got a right to make our laws, and if the federal government is going to try to enforce unconstitutional laws on our people and take away the rights of Wyoming citizens, then we as a state are going to step up and make that a crime."

    It says that your one size fits all solution doesn’t comport to what a vast majority of the state believes,” Sen. Hicks told the paper about the message federal politicians should be taking from the legislation, telling other reporters that state lawmakers were receiving e-mails in support of the bill from all across America and that citizens were urging their own states to take similar action. “I don’t think this is controversial in Wyoming at all.... I fully expect this bill to pass.”

    According to the liberty-minded state senator, even if Congress refuses to budge, the administration is determined to restrict gun ownership by presidential decree. "I think that's the biggest threat we're facing," he told the AP. Sen. Hicks also said that his constituents were “absolutely terrified” about threats from Washington to assault gun rights — especially Vice President Joe Biden’s pledge this week to implement the lawless attack by executive order.

    A bill just introduced in Indiana known as the Firearm Freedom Act, for instance, would also protect the rights of gun owners to be free from federal regulations if the gun was produced and purchased in the state. Similar legislation has already been adopted in other states.....snip~


    Alright Indiana!!!!!

    now, if the state officials want to impose their own interpertation regarding what should be found unConstitutional and then try before the state court a federal employee performing his fiduciary responsibilities, expect a show down. not unlike Eisenhower sending in the National Guard to enforce the federal non-discrimination laws in arkansas

    for the younger crowd, the state officials lost
    Some analysts quoted in the establishment press, also presumably unfamiliar with history or the U.S. Constitution, have claimed that states may not nullify unconstitutional federal usurpations as well. Of course, American history is replete with examples of nullification Wisconsin nullified a federal statute purporting to require the return of escaped slaves to their masters, for example. Even Founding Fathers like Thomas Jefferson helped states void unconstitutional legislation in the early years of the Republic.

    More recently, states all across America have been putting their foot down. Even causes traditionally associated with liberals, such as marijuana legalization, have succeeded through nullification — Colorado and Washington state both legalized the controversial plant in November, and many other states have approved it for medical use in spite of unconstitutional federal statutes. Conservatives and libertarians have also been relying on nullification, especially in recent years.....snip~

    You were sayin something about Nullification?

    And lawmakers also expected Obamacare to be found unconsitutional. Doesn't mean it stands any better of a chance.

    In regards to Indianas law, I remember something being thrown around about 4-5 years ago in another state I believe like that however they still fall under federal regulations IF the gun is found in another state and was used to commit a crime by a felon. This is why they abandoned it. I want to say Montana was that state but I can't remember for sure.

    yes. only a fool believes it is possible

    you want to cite washington and colorado as indicators that it is. but this a fresh action. we have only to look at medical mary jane laws to see that they are not. or were you unaware that the feds ignored the state law relative to those state licensed dispensaries

    Why? You are the one who has lost. Harry Reid has already indicated he will not bring any legislation to the floor of the Senate that he doesn't think will pass the House and that he doesn't think AWB would pass the House ergo, you are going to be the loser in the end.

    yea, which is why tejas congresscritter (first term) stockman is already threatening to impeach the president if he issues any XOs regarding gun control

    your side has reason to worry. Gabby is now the public face of gun control
