good point there, originally it was made illegal most likely because it would basically bankrupt the textile industry... other than that, look at the state of cali. i wanna say in the year 2011 i think it was, i read in rolling stone magazine that the state of california made 14 BILLION in PROFIT... not money back, PROFIT, due to the medicinal marijuana industry.... could you imagine the revenue acquired if it were legalized, between that and medicinal use we could wipe our debt clean and bring the US dollar back to a 100 percent accepted world currency and most likely the highest worth the dollar has ever had. washington and colorado had the right idea, i hope vermont's next!!

What would you know about it, you powerless British supplicant. God save the queen!

We own firearms so that we don't become another Hitler-era Germany. You remember Hitler right, the guy who almost conquered England? You know you would be speaking German right now and eating braunschweiger if it hadn't been for Americans and their guns.

Thank God Almighty.
I can now sleep a little easier tonight knowing that this could pass.

Edit to add: Not that I personally own any firearms because I DON'T but I know people who do.
Strike that, I don't know ANYONE who does but I have heard rumors about people who do and today is a great day for THEM, NOT ME!!

Except for the tiny fact that the Constitution specifically states in Article VI that Federal Laws trump any State Laws.

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary

Darn that pesky Constitution.

Except that the 10th limits the power of the Federal government to regulate thr states. The constitution gives no power to the Feds, it restricts them, and gives the power to the states to govern.

There are far more states in the union which receive more federal aid then they send out in federal taxes. Texas receives .85 for every dollar they pay in federal taxes so they would be ok in your scenario. Missouri receives 1.53 from the federal government for every dollar sent in taxes and Wyoming is the worst of the three in that they receive 1.62 for every dollar they send to the fed in taxes...

Sorry but your plan would not pan out...

Tell that to the dispensaries in CA being raided by the feds.. I think they might have an issue with your assessment of the constitution. Just sayin.

I bolded the part that you overlooked, making this legislation legal.

You're welcome.

i guess missouri just showed ya, now i wish every other state would show me too.
all state legislatures should pass laws like this, and every one of missouri's state legislators, that voted in favor of this law should be up for election for their state federal senator seats or house reps.
way missouri

You can sleep a little better at night knowing that law enforcement can't take actions to remove guns from people?

Personally, given the number of guns and crazies out there, this sort of law makes me nervous.

Did you know that the Luftwaffe couldn't fly without an engine fluid addition that was only made by Standard Oil, and was sold to the Nazis in contravention of the Trading with the Enemy act, and that banking services for the Nazis were made possible by Prescott Bush, again, in contravention of the Trading With The Enemies act?

So much for American assistance to the British.

All the gun manufacturers have to do is manufacture the receiver of the gun in the State. Parts like barrels, triggers and others can still be manufactured where they are now and shipped to the States. As long as final assembly and parts that would violate Federal laws were manufactures in the State it would be legal.

Huh?

NO!

I'd sleep a LOT better at night, not a little better.

Law enforcement can still take the same actions they've always been able to - i.e. removing them from miscreants, not the general population, as seems to be the Obamite wet dream.

Wont have to worry about Massachusetts doing such a Patriotic act, as Obama and Deval Patrick are good buddies with the same socialist ideals.

this is what im talking about, the second amendment is the SECOND amendment for a reason. why would our founding fathers make it the SECOND amendment if it wasn't supposed to come before the other laws they put our rights in order of importance. 1st freedom to say what ever the hell I want. and 2nd to protect me and my own against someone that doesn't agree with what I 1st amendmented.. if that makes any sense.

I can say I'm proud to be a Missourian! Too bad I have to work during the capitol protests, but at least it seems likely our state is headed in the right direction. We can't forget the best part, we have CMMG!

Well, Obama talked about CHANGE well he is getting it, the states are rapidly turning against him!
I am pretty sure my home state of Arizona will be following suit very soon!
A few years ago we needed a permit to carry, now you can carry without a permit and they say the crime WENT DOWN!! No crook is taking a chance in robbing a person if there is a chance he is carrying!

No, the world (including the SMARTER Brits) are saying to us to defend our rights lest America turn into a country like yours! If you remember your history, we kicked your butts TWICE, and it was mostly by ordinary American citizens armed with "squirrel rifles!"
Our "love and obsession is to be FREE" that is why we fought your King in the past!
So, no the world is not laughing at us, only sheep like yourselves are!

I'm just curious. All this talk of the Constitution. Is this document, that was written over 200 hundred years ago by people who had agendas and circumstances that you can't even begin to understand, the sole inspiration for this adamant confrontation of any appearance of infringement on this perceived right? Or is this something deeper in your own personality.

I certainly don't want to question anyone's motives, but I think some judgements are certainly impaired.

The Constitution is most certainly a flawed document if it's purpose is to maintain the united nature of the states participating in this union. In the short history of this country ( and I hesitate to call this a country, more like a loose affiliation of dominions.) a lack of commitment to the federal or supreme government has been on display often, the most visible being the Civil War. Remember that blood bath? I assume that commitment of Abraham Lincoln to insure the continuation of this union is still strong.

I suggest that the strong individualism of many Americans is about to be tested. I also believe it is to come up wanting. Those who want to defy the national government will soon be identified as enemies of the state and in this conflict power will prevail. Righteous reference to the Founding Fathers and homilies of individual liberty, will mean little in the aftermath of the death and destruction that will ensue.This ain't a game you play in the field with your friends shooting at paper targets. Is the will there to die and have your family stripped of their home and livelihood?

To quote Mr. Heston, " You'll pry this gun from my cold dead hands." Maybe they will. And just maybe It'll be the correct thing to do.
