The movement has seen a general resurgence of late, for which I am glad. The state to be watching here is Montana, who is not only passing such legislation but is planning an actual confrontation with the fedsResolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of
California, jointly, That the State of California hereby claims
sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution of the
United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and
granted to the federal government by the United States
Constitution and that this measure shall serve as notice and
demand to the federal government to cease and desist, effective
immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of its
constitutionally delegated powers; and be it further
Resolved, That the Secretary of the Senate transmit copies of
this resolution to the President and Vice President of the
United States, the Speaker of the United States House of
Representatives, the President pro Tempore of the United States
Senate, each Senator and Representative from California in the
Congress of the United States and to the Speaker of the House
and the President of the Senate of each state legislature in the
United States of America.
Montana poised to buck federal gun control
The real target, though, is the U.S. Supreme Court. And Marbut and others believe they can hit that mark with a simple Montana-made youth-model single-shot bolt-action .22 rifle.
In particular, they plan to find a “squeaky clean” Montanan who wants to send a note to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives threatening to build and sell about 20 such rifles without federal dealership licensing. If the ATF tells them it’s illegal, they will then file a lawsuit in federal court n with any luck triggering a legal battle that lands in the nation’s highest court.
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

And in the face of the looming bankruptcy of the state, the Guvernator and the Democrats are pushing a special election this May to get the sucker voters to pass ballot initiatives to allow all the spending the Republicans managed to trim in their compromise, and further increase the tax burden on the state.
That's what happens when people vote Democrat.
