Kansas nullifies federal gun laws – period

"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"

Topeka – The struggle over states rights has returned to the plains of the free state that spawned violence, leading to the War Between the States.

This time, it's all about the right to keep and bear arms, and it's serious as a heart attack - or a government raid.

Kansans will return to an understanding of the right to keep and bear arms that dates from its entry into the United States of America in the first year of the Civil War, 1861.

Governor Sam Brownback signed a new law that renders federal gun law null and void if it conflicts with the Second Amendment.

The main factor of the new legislation is that the definition of the Second Amendment is not keyed to any Supreme Court opinion or ruling, according to its sponsors and authors.

“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,” a section of the law states.

Constitutional experts reason that such an interpretation of a state statute will cause enough widespread noncompliance that it will render any enforcement of federal gun controls impossible to enforce in that state.

A similar law, the 2nd Amendment Protection Act, has passed the Federalism Committee in the Texas Legislature, and is standing in line to be placed in the hopper of the all-important Calendars Committee, a step essential to put it in line for a floor vote in the House of Representatives, according to the Tenth Amendment Center.
