    States can refuse to allow their law enforcement to investigate federal crimes, but they are not going to be able to lock up federal officials. It is just silly to think otherwise.

Washington State and Co. passed pot laws but they know the Feds can step in if they wanted too.
    I Googled and learned that he was elected only two months ago and that his father is a first-generation American.

    It may well be grandstanding. Or grandstanding and also heartfelt. Or heartfelt. But see Fishstyx's post above because maybe this is the beginning of a good idea.

    it would be a good time to force the federal boundary issues

    if the Obamatards try to ban normal cap magazines or weapons that cause them to wet their pants, the solution would be for makers to limit their sales in the state where they are located and then the interstate commerce nexus would not exist and state law protecting such weapons would be pretty damn compelling

    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~

    Others are already in the process.

    A Texas lawmaker says he plans to file the Firearms Protection Act, which would make any federal laws that may be passed by Congress or imposed by Presidential order which would ban or restrict ownership of semi-automatic firearms or limit the size of gun magazines illegal in the state, 1200 WOAI news reports.


    Republican Rep. Steve Toth says his measure also calls for felony criminal charges to be filed against any federal official who tries to enforce the rule in the state.

    "If a federal official comes into the state of Texas to enforce the federal executive order, that person is subject to criminal prosecution," Toth told 1200 WOAI's Joe Pags Tuesday. He says his bill would make attempting to enforce a federal gun ban in Texas punishable by a $50,000 fine and up to five years in prison.
