Thread: Eric Holder Threatens Kansas

  1. Default Eric Holder Threatens Kansas

    On Thursday, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback received a letter from Federal Attorney General Eric Holder threatening action against the state should it enforce SB102 which Brownback signed into law last month.

    The new law 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

    The bill also provides for criminal penalties against federal agents who attempt to enforce specific federal laws on guns manufactured in the state of Kansas and sold within the state – as the state takes the position under the new law that the federal government does not “interstate commerce” authority over such items.

    In his letter, Holder didn’t take too kindly to such a proposition. He wrote:

    “In purporting to override federal law and to criminalize the official acts of federal officers, SB102 directly conflicts with federal law and is therefore unconstitutional.”

    He continued, “Under the Supremacy Clause…Kansas may not prevent federal employees and officials from carrying out their official responsibilities. And a state certainly may not criminalize the exercise of federal responsibilities. Because SB102 conflicts with federal firearms laws and regulations, federal law supercedes this new statute; all provisions of federal laws and their implementing regulations therefore continue to apply.”

    If Holder wants to march on Kansas he better wear his big boy britches. Read the link and let me know what you think.
    We are not the product of our environment, we are the result of ourselves.

    Federal law trumps state law every single time. Sorry but your beloved state nullification does not exist, nor did it ever.

    I remember when Kansas was the land of Judy Garland and the Wizrd of Oz ... now it's the Wicked Witch with an AR-15.

    if Holder wants to enforce federal law, let him do it. Kansas is under no obligation to do so.
    What you have whispered to someone behind closed doors will be shouted from the rooftops.
    Do you want to live in Flint or Detroit but don't want the hassle of relocating? Keep voting for Democrats, and they will move to you.

    Except, of course, for Colorado and Washington's new marijuana laws, and California's blatant violations of federal immigration laws with their "sanctuary" cities....isn't that right, Montoya?

    Yes, folks.... when progressive leftist agenda thumbs its nose at the "supremacy clause", the 10th Amendment suddenly becomes all the rage.

    Hypocrites.

    Holder hates the fact that Kansas is trying to protect their right to the 2A, but love giing his butt buddies in mexico all the guns they want. Apparently he also has no problem with the thugs in Chicago turning the city into a shooting gallery. Instead Holder's (*)(*)(*)(*)(*) ass wines about a state that is ranked around 40th in terms on states with the most murders or crime lol.

    more liberal hypocrisy at its finest.

    I didn't forget.....I just didn't want to get in circular semantics games over the microscopic differences between Arizona's immigration laws (and the other states Holder sued) and Federal immigration law.

    and yes. They always want it both ways....'of means and ends"....morals, ethics, shame, embarrassment, cognitive dissonance be damned.

    good, let them do it. the state is a separate sovereignty and is not required to mimic Federal action. if Holder wants to bust into people homes and steal their medicine, he better get started. there's a lot of houses out there.
