    Question: Is YOUR State taking a Stand against Federal Government Intrusion?

    I'm working on trying to get introduced in my home state the same acts as Wyoming has introduced: Re: http://legisweb.state.wy.us/2013/Introduced/HB0104.pdf How about you?
    When all other methods of protest have been dismantled, the system leaves us with only two options: stand and fight, or kneel and beg for mercy. All you need to know is what YOU would do when faced with that choice.

    It's New York, so your question must be rhetorical. Little Andy Cuomo wants to be the federal government, that is what this very rushed new gun law was, a bid to be first in line for the 2016 presidential primary.

    We're getting started in Michigan. I would like to see more, but these are steps in the right direction.

    The federal government has overstepped its Constitutional authority for too many years; it is time to reinstate the powers enumerated to us under the Bill of Rights, the Tenth Amendment.

    The federalist hue and cry of the day is the Supremacy Clause, followed closely by the Commerce and Necessary and Proper clauses. Here is my response:

    "The Preamble to The Bill of Rights

    Congress of the United States
    begun and held at the City of New-York, on
    Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

    THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, IN ORDER TO PREVENT MISCONSTRUCTION OR ABUSE OF ITS POWERS, THAT FURTHER DECLARATORY AND RESTRICTIVE CLAUSES SHOULD BE ADDED: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

    RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.

    ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution..." (emphasis added).
    The stated intention of the Bill of Rights is to prevent the abuse of power by the federal government by restricting the very clauses to which many in the federal government have appealed as the basis for their gun control laws. Simply stated, the Amendments that make up the Bill of Rights SUPERSEDE the Supremacy, Commerce, and Necessary and Proper Clauses - regardless of whether federalist-minded judges agree with that truth. The Bill of Rights was ratified by a veto-proof, two-thirds majority of both houses of Congress, which was absolutely necessary because Washington was opposed to many of the provisions it contained (it is interesting to note that the Preamble of the Bill of Rights says nothing about the President SIGNING it, only that it was passed by a veto-proof majority of both houses of the federal legislature and ratified by a three-fourths supermajority of the legislatures of the States). Why? Because they would have served to diminish the power of the federal government. Washington's circular letter to the governors of the States and his retirement address both declare his unswerving belief that this would be detrimental to the future of the country, that an absolutely supreme, all powerful, centralized government to which the States and the People were in absolute subservience was the only way to insure our future. We can see where Washington's beliefs have taken us as our Constitutionally-enumerated rights continue to be eroded by a power-hungry government that represents its own interests and agenda.

    It is time to take our place with the ten other states that either have passed, or are in the process of passing, similar legislation, and to once again reassert the supremacy of the States over the federal government. The federal government was created by the States; the federal government is supposed to be subservient to the States. It is time to take the fight to the federal government, to remind them that the Bill of Rights placed limits on their power.
    NEW Definition of Gun Control: The theory that 20 grade school children found dead in their classrooms, most shot multiple times while waiting for the police, is somehow morally superior to the principal explaining to police how the attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    Oklahoma has one. I don't know how far it will go, due to the question of state law overriding federal law, but it is there.

    Here is an article about the law:

    The "Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Preservation Act" is now working its way through the Oklahoma legislature.

    Introduced by state senator Nathan Dahm, this legislation puts Oklahoma shoulder-to-shoulder with Wyoming and Texas by putting federal gun-grabbers in check.

    The language of the legislation is clear: "Federal acts, laws, orders, rules, regulations, bans or registration requirements regarding firearms constitute an infringement on the individual right [to keep and bear arms] in the Constitution of the United States...and are hereby declared to be invalid in the State of Oklahoma."

    The legislation mentions the "intent" of America's "Founders" and the Constitution's "ratifiers," and sets forth the punishment for trying to enforce new gun control measures:

    Any official, agent, or employee of the United States government or any employee of a corporation providing services to the United States government that enforces or attempts to enforce an act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the government of the United States in violation of this act shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction...shall be punished by imprisonment in the custody of the Department of Corrections not to exceed five (5) years.

    After reading this legislation, only one word comes to mind--FREEDOM.

    I just saw on the news where Biden is taking to the road to argue for more gun control. I hope enough states get together and let him know where the government can stick it's new legislation. I have a funny feeling we are in for a hard road to hoe but we can win this if we let Congress know that we won't stand for anymore whining from the Libs. The slide to socialism is ramping up.
