Thread: Louisiana House Votes to Nullify Federal Gun Control

  1. Default Louisiana House Votes to Nullify Federal Gun Control

    Baton Rouge, La. (April 23, 2013) – Today, the Louisiana State House voted to approve House Bill 5 (HB5), the Louisiana Preservation of Individual Gun Rights of Citizens Act. If passed into law, the bill would make it unlawful “for any official, agent, or employee of the United States government to enforce or attempt to enforce a federal law, rule, regulation, or executive order” which would “Ban or restrict the ownership or possession of a semi-automatic firearm, or any magazine, accessory, or ammunition for a semi-automatic firearm” or “Require that any semi-automatic firearm, magazine, accessory, or ammunition for a semi-automatic firearm be registered in any manner.”

    The final tally was 67-25. (roll call here)

    To make the case, the bill cites both the federal and state constitutions. It reads, in part: “The Louisiana Legislature hereby finds and declares that the right to keep and bear arms is constitutionally protected by both the federal and state constitutions. The provisions of this Part are designed to preserve those rights for Louisiana citizens.”

    Why are States so concerned about gun rights? Is it because so many want to take those rights away? What do you guys think?
    We are not the product of our environment, we are the result of ourselves.

    There might be as many as a dozen states that have nullified federal law so far.

    Between this and cannabis, tensions between the states and the Federal government are rapidly approaching the point at which we'll see some of them secede again.

    That seems to be just a feel good law. Theoretically the Feds could arrest and prosecute people for violation of the federal laws in federal court and imprison them in federal prisons upon conviction even if the person was 100% innocent under State law. The only way to ensure that people fully enjoy their rights is for jurors to find them not guilty of any laws that violate those rights in State and Federal courts.

    I certainly hope so. The federal government tries to stand between people and freedom.

    It's gotten way too big and needs to be toned down some.

    The money grabber politicians seem to be the ones who want to take away the guns, I wonder why?

    Good luck with that nullification crap. You have got to be the King of Dumb to actually believe that a state legislature is really going to get away with telling the Feds that you can ignore the law of the land in favor of the law of just one state (or two or ten states). That's been tried and beat down some 150 years ago. Some folks just don't learn.

    Makes no difference what the state law is about: if it goes against federal law, it's not going to fly.
