Thread: Kansas Governor Signs 2nd Amendment Protection Act

  1. Default Kansas Governor Signs 2nd Amendment Protection Act

    TOPEKA, KS (April 16, 2013) – Today, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed into law Senate Bill 102 (SB102), formerly HB2199 – the 2nd Amendment Protection Act. In the wake of increased federal interest in restricting the right to keep and bear arms, the new Kansas law is the most comprehensive nullification of such acts thus far.

    The new law nullifies a wide range of federal attacks on the right to keep and bear arms in the State of Kansas. It states, in part:

    Any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the government of the United States which violates the second amendment to the constitution of the United States is null, void and unenforceable in the state of Kansas

    In conjunction with Section 6a (quoted above), the bill defines what is meant by “the second amendment to the constitution of the United States,” and that it isn’t based off a decision of the supreme court.

    The second amendment to the constitution of the United States reserves to the people, individually, the right to keep and bear arms as that right was understood at the time that Kansas was admitted to statehood in 1861, and the guaranty of that right is a matter of contract between the state and people of Kansas and the United States as of the time that the compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted by Kansas in 1859 and the United States in 1861.

    I think anyone living in Colorado should move to Kansas.

    Unenforceable.

    But it allows the KS Governor to appeal to the conservative voters of the state.

    what is sad is that the 2nd amendment is clear and state laws should not need to be enacted to stop federal over-reach.. States can enact their own laws because states are supposed to have more power.
    If the emperor is naked, and despite fear of insults, we are duty bound to state the obvious.

    You think the party that works exclusively for the rich and corporate america gives a (*)(*)(*)(*) about your consitutional rights? You don't have any rights in american you can't pay for.

    Keep on with that illusion there....

    I will also add that Brownback has eliminated state income tax on the states richest citizens and businesses and is working to shift the tax burden to the lower and middles classes. He's also working to eliminate unions in Kansas so the working man no longer has a say in government. This while the states richest citizens and corporations have exclusive access to the governors office, a priviledge the lower and middle classes cannot afford. Businesses actually brag about how they can "buy" legislation in kansas exempting them from taxes.

    Cheer him on, but Brownback is as dispicable and anti american as they come. Iroinc though how the 2nd amendment may actually be what brings him down when the people revolt.

    I believe that our Second Amendment clearly enumerates what is necessary to the security of a free State.

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
    Can the sovereign State of Kansas explain why our Second Amendment secures any rights in poverty in the class called Arms; when our federal Congress is delegated the social Power of Arming the Militia of the United States?

    Article 1, Section 8
    To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;
    State Constitutions already secure rights in private property and that remedy is already available via federal precedent regarding inalienable or indefeasible rights to even controversial forms of private property.

    Kansas Bill of Rights § 4. Individual right to bear arms; armies.== A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and state, for lawful hunting and recreational use, and for any other lawful purpose; but standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, and shall not be tolerated, and the military shall be in strict subordination to the civil power.
    Therefore, our Second Amendment simply Exempts Individual Persons of the People who are specifically connected with militia service, from State laws regarding gun control in favor of a federal prescription for wellness of regulation by our federal Congress,.
