GOA/GOF Fund CHallenge to NFA in U.S. Supreme Court
#1
Quote:Springfield, VA –(AmmoLand.com)- Gun Owners of America (GOA) and its legal arm, Gun Owners Foundation (GOF), this week continued their defense of Jeremy Kettler, who is a disabled combat veteran. GOA/GOF submitted a petition for writ of certiorari before the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Kettler, after he was convicted for violating the National Firearms Act (NFA).


The Obama Justice Department brought criminal felony charges against Kettler for illegally possessing an unregistered firearm suppressor, despite the fact that Kansas’ “Second Amendment Protection Act” protected his actions.
GOA and GOF have stood with Kettler, both in his appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, and now in the U.S. Supreme Court.


GOA’s executive director, Erich Pratt, stated, “It’s time to challenge the NFA, which has long been a leviathan of unconstitutional gun control. GOA/GOF is not only proud to defend one of our nation’s disabled veterans, but also to potentially deal a significant blow to the NFA.”
GOA/GOF arguments challenge the legitimacy of the NFA as a so-called “tax,” challenge the absurd notion that the Second Amendment only applies to “bearable arms,” and raise concerns that the NFA is a tax on a constitutionally-protected right.


“GOA/GOF have stood for the right to own ‘bearable arms’ of all types, and firearms accessories as well — including suppressors and machineguns,” Pratt stated. “The arguments presented by GOA/GOF cut to the heart of the National Firearms Act.”
GOA/GOF urge the Supreme Court to take up this case and put an end to lower courts ignoring the Heller and McDonald decisions.


“Jeremy Kettler’s petition presents solid, well-argued questions important to all gun owners, and we hope the Court will grant certiorari to decide them,” Pratt concluded.

Hmmm....so Federal law trumps State law, imagine that.  Pretty much what I've said about the marijuana "legalization" when people bring it up.

Yep.  Us military members see it all the time.  Just because you took a trip to Colorado and smoke weed there because it's legal, doesn't mean you aren't going to get busted when you pop positive on a drug test.
