You are CORRECT.

Eight states have passed laws voiding federal firearms regulations



A News21 analysis shows 14 such bills were passed by legislators in 11 states, mainly in Western states, along with Kansas, Tennessee and Alaska. Of those, 11 were signed into law, though one was later struck down in court. In Montana, Missouri and Oklahoma, three others were vetoed.


Now if we could get the other '57' to get out from the feet of tyrants.

Senate bill: Michigan-made guns, ammo sold in state would be exempt from federal regulations

Of course the 10th says they get to do this.

And though they ignore the second ,and the rest of Bill of Rights.

The 14th gives every state in the union the RIGHT to be a sanctuary city for gun owners.

"The Feds" have jurisdiction over excise taxes on firearms. That's an Article I Section 8 issue.


excise taxes are an entirely different subject, your comment was about regulating intrastate sales of an item, which is outside the jurisdiction of the federal government...look it up, its called the commerce clause.


My comment is about Federal jurisdiction in terms of the sale of firearms in which there is a compelling interest due to the excise tax on ALL firearms.

Stop trying to muddy the water; the Constitution says what it says.

Shifted the playing field by sitting on the Floor?

I see what you did there. Clever.

What makes that worse.

Is we truly do live in an idiocracy.

The people 'support' it.

The people 'support' voting their RIGHTS away.

And I am saying that if this debate were being held back in the day of the Founders, we'd be arguing about evil assault muskets. They occupy the same niche.

When you're back there in the past, tell them that we have the largest military in the world, that we have a standing army of well over 1 million soldiers and that we have military bases in virtually every country on earth. Oh, and while you're at it, tell them that the American people have more guns than that military and all our police forces (you'll have to explain that concept to them) combined.

Ask them if that's what they had in mind with the Second Amendment and get back to us.

Actually, in the colonies, adult men were required to own and bear their muskets, and were penalized for not doing so.

Usual requirements were 2 lbs of powder and 10 lbs of balls, particularly in Massachusetts.

They even had to carry them to church.

This was known as "a well-regulated militia."

Diane Feinstein stated a personal desire to ban and confiscate all guns.

Where is that legislation? When was it brought to a vote?

Notable from your CBS article Neo:



A CBS News poll released a few days after the Orlando attack found that a majority, 57 percent of Americans, think gun laws should be stricter. The survey also found that 57 percent support a nationwide ban on assault weapons, up from 44 percent in December, and a whopping 89 percent of Americans favor universal background checks.


I suppose you're supporting everything else in the article besides that, then?
