State nullification laws threaten feds with felonies on gun controls

by Joel McDurmon on Jan 22, 2013

The Save America Foundation has collected data for the following report:

Texas, Florida, South Carolina, Missouri, Indiana, Tennesee, Oklahoma, North Dakota, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have proposed legislation to either jail federal officials who violate the second amendment or to nullify federal laws to control guns within state borders.

Notably, the bills for Missouri and Florida threaten public officials, including federal agents, with felonies and jail time if they attempt to enforce certain federal gun control measures. The Missouri bill reads in part,

“Any official, agent, or employee of the federal government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the federal government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in the state of Missouri and that remains exclusively within the borders of the state of Missouri shall be guilty of a class D felony.”

Florida’s likewise:

Any official, agent, or employee of the government of the United States, or employee of a corporation providing services to the government of the United States who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States government upon a civilian-owned firearm, a firearm accessory, or  ammunition that is owned, sold, transferred, or manufactured commercially or privately in Florida shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, shall be subject to imprisonment for not less than one   (1) year and one (1) day or more than five (5) years, a fine of not more than five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), or both.

  1. will the states follow through or is it hollow words ? time will tell

  2. I believe that I might move from Calislaveya to A state that will protect my God given rights.

  3. It is at least a start to nullify sotero’s proposal to ban guns… I think if enough States passed Laws to this Effect we will have built a WALL high enough to block him..

  4. I agree Roymcdade. Finally some states are attempting to stand firm for our constitutional rights. I will take any “action” to stand firm at this point.

  5. I’ve already sent this to rense.com, I hope it’s posted within the hour!

  6. I like it . We need about 29 more to sign onto this . You might as well forget about N.Y., MASS., CALIF., ILL., HI ., CONN ., DEL., MD., and R.I….. OHIO might be a toss-up .

  7. Uh, you do understand that nullification is not legal, that state law cannot override federal law, that we fought a Civil War in part about this, that like it or not, since 1789 under President Washington, this country was founded on the supremacy of Federal Law, that we have a Constitution and a Supreme Court to challenge any Unconstitutional over reaching of Federal laws…that for over 200 years the people and the government of the United States have rejected this doctrine…uh, you do understand that, right?
