Lawmakers plot new strategy for defying gun laws
#1
Quote:JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Having failed in an earlier effort to bar federal agents from enforcing gun regulations in Missouri, conservative lawmakers are trying a new tack this year: banding together with other like-minded states to defy certain federal laws at the same time.

Supporters believe it will be more difficult for the federal government to shrug off such statutes if more states act together.

Missouri's latest proposal, introduced this past week, would attempt to nullify certain federal gun control regulations from being enforced in the state and subject law enforcement officers to criminal and civil penalties for carrying out such policies.

We continue to see the federal government overreach their rightful bounds, and if we can create a situation where we have some unity among states, then I think it puts us in a better position to make that argument," said Republican Sen. Brian Nieves, who is sponsoring the legislation

The bill cites no specific federal law, but the measure refers to taxes and fees, specifically levied against firearms, as well as tracking policies that have a "chilling effect" on gun ownership

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

Too bad there's no such thing as state nullification of federal law. The best they can hope for is that the feds stay out, like with Colorado and weed.

On guns, unlikely.

Not saying it would happen, just saying that's what it reminded me of.

99.9999999999% of the time wars are about money or property. Yes it was about slavery--that was the economy of the South which depended on slave labor because the cotton gin dramatically upped production and a vast labor force was needed who was paid nothing for their work to pull more cotton plants to feed the machines.

To ban slavery would be like asking a country to give up its only means of earning income. For every cotton producing state, instantly abolishing slavery would be economic and political suicide.


Firearms aren't that critical to everyone's livelihood--so no, it won't happen.

If some activists were pushing for laws that would virtually guarantee instant economic chaos and certain poverty for nearly everyone (even if temporary)--that would be enough fuel to incite a war.

Yup I agree.

on a side note ever heard of this?

Makes me question whether the civil war was "all about slavery".
