Missouri Senate Votes to Nullify Federal Gun Control, 23-10

I seriously think we should propose an exact duplicate of this bill in RI to draw a line in the sand and to counteract any propose assault weapon/handgun legislation... or, just for laughs and to see the reactions on the hill and in projo :D

Missouri Senate Votes to Nullify Federal Gun Control, 23-10

A Missouri bill which seeks to nullify virtually every federal gun control measure on the books, "whether past, present or future," passed the Senate Thursday. SB613 would ban the state from enforcing virtually all federal gun control measures, and includes criminal charges for federal agents attempting to violate the right to keep and bear arms in Missouri.

The measure passed 23-10.

SB613 counts as what could be the strongest defense against federal encroachments on the right to keep an bear arms ever considered at the state level. It reads, in part:

All federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations, whether past, present, or future, which infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States I and Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution shall be invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, shall be specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.

Federal acts which would be considered "null and void and of no effect" include, but are not limited to:

(a) Any tax, levy, fee, or stamp imposed on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(b) Any registering or tracking of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(c) Any registering or tracking of the owners of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(d) Any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens; and

(e) Any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens

The legislation specifically bans all state employees from enforcing or attempting to enforce any acts running counter to the proposed law. Such a tactic is an extremely effective way to stop a federal government busting at the seams. Even the National Governors Association admitted the same recently when they sent out a press release noting that "States are partners with the federal government in implementing most federal programs."

That means states can create impediments to enforcing and implementing "most federal programs." On federal gun control measures, Judge Andrew Napolitano suggested that a single state standing down would make federal gun laws "nearly impossible to enforce" within that state.

James Madison, the "Father of the Constitution," advised this very tactic. Madison supplied the blueprint for resisting federal power in Federalist 46. He outlined several steps that states can take to effective stop "an unwarrantable measure," or "even a warrantable measure" of the federal government. Madison called for "refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union" as a way to successfully thwart federal acts.

Completely agree! How do we get someone in the RI legislature so submit the same for RI?

First we have to repeal a few laws (suppressors & Class 3 firearms), then we could go from there.
