There’s a new and extremely dangerous crop of gun bill springing up around the country. This bill is specifically designed to go after the federal authority to regulate guns. The goal is to get the new law into the courts, and ultimately before the Supreme Court, to challenge the federal authority to regulate guns through interstate commerce laws. These legislators, egged on by gun extremists and anti-federal government devotees, are playing with fire.
Here’s how it works:
Putting aside the fact that exempting guns from federal regulations is an incredibly bad and recklessly dangerous idea, these bills fly in the face of everything this country stands for. They are meant to undermine our federal system of government. If states can exempt themselves from federal gun laws what else can they opt out of?
Let's hope the courts act quickly and decisively to shut down this clearly unconstitutional law. Shame on legislators for supporting these bills that are not only dangerous, but blatantly anti-American.
