Interesting watch. West Virginia has 2 bills introduced to tell Uncle Sam to shove it
I certainly hope so but that being said, SCOTUS have historically been cowards with regard to the 2A rights. We get small wins once in a while but the overarching problem is that any law restricting the right afforded in the 2A is unconstitutional. In addition taxation on a right is a problem. Not taxation on hunting (necessary evil or many species would be extinct) but taxation on guns and ammo and the exercise of the rights to own and/or carry. Limiting a persons right is infringement, taxation on that right makes it a privilege. If you have to do anything, pay taxes, pay fees, ask permission, register a weapon, etc, it’s not a right.I suspect this is done to get the issue before the SCOTUS. If the SCOTUS rules in favor of the 2nd Amendment, a number of states will have to walk back their unconstitutional actions to limit the 2nd Amendment. Just a thought.
What about all the states that have nullified federal narcotics laws regarding the legalization of pot?Ridiculous. First, illegal. States have no right to nullify federal laws. You may recall a rather significant dust up between the states in the mid-19th century over that. And, as an opponent of Democratic strongholds attempting to oppose federal immigration laws with their 'sanctuary cities', the hypocrisy of attempting to do the same thing should be self apparent. Secondly, "oppose taxes on firearms and ammunition" ? The vast and overwhelming funding for wildlife conservation in the United States comes from two sources, the largest of which is the Pittman-Robertson excise tax on firearms and ammunition and the lesser of which is hunting license fees. So these two moronic legislators attempting to show their ideological purity are proposing that WV oppose the collection of Pittman-Robertson excise taxes? These idiots are no better than the Kansas legislators and that idiot Governor Brownback that passed a law "banning" federal firearms enforcement in Kansas. Well, there's some poor ******* still in jail today for believing those fools and buying a suppressor in Kansas without doing the federal paperwork and paying the tax stamp. But the idiots who passed the law he thought was legit haven't gone to jail. And these two WV idiots are no better.
They have not nullified federal law. Pot remains enforceably illegal in federal jurisdictions in those states and, if the DOJ chose to pursue federal prosecutions in those states, the state would have no recourse.What about all the states that have nullified federal narcotics laws regarding the legalization of pot?
Seems to have worked out ok with them
