Idaho governor signs emergency legislation nullifying all future federal gun laws
#1
Quote:BOISE, March 21, 2014 – On Thursday, Idaho Governor Butch Otter ® signed a bill, which would effectively nullify future federal gun laws, by prohibiting state enforcement of any future federal act relating to personal firearms, a firearm accessories or ammunition.

S1332 passed the house by a vote of 68-0 and the senate by a vote of 34-0. Alaska and Kansas have also passed similar laws.


Introduced by the State Affairs Committee, the Idaho Federal Firearm, Magazine and Register Ban Enforcement Act, will:

“protect Idaho law enforcement officers from being directed, through federal executive orders, agency orders, statutes, laws, rules, or regulations enacted or promulgated on or after the effective date of this act, to violate their oath of office and Idaho citizens’ rights under Section 11, Article I, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho.”

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Nullification is a myth.

That doesn't undo the myth. States have no right nor constitutional means to nullify federal law. They have to go through the courts, same as everyone else.


Speaking of myths. Why would he need to sign "emergency" legislation for "future" laws? That doesn't even make sense.

If they really want to show that they're doing something, why not "nullify" all current laws?

My guess is that they know that it's bullshit. Besides, it's not really nullification anyway. It only applies to state employees enforcing federal laws, and doesn't say that federal laws aren't applicable in Idaho or that the feds can't enforce their own laws using their own agencies.

I thought that local authorities were already under no obligation to enforce federal laws?

I'm with Streaker69 on this. The state cannot void federal law. But, the state and local authorities do not have to act as federal agents to enforce federal law either.

States can void federal law, they just have to have the balls to stick by their decision, somewhat similar to SC in 1860.

Not that it's going to happen, but at this point it's probably the only thing that can stop the overreach of the federal govt.

There's a difference between not being able to do something and it being against the law
