@LucindaOwen is this your attempt at insulting what happened or the people who live there? If so, it's not welcome.

@victoria_29 sure hope so!

@derekwilson62 back then, they seceded because they OPPOSED nullification which was happening in the north, thwarting federal slavery laws.

@Monorprise yeah, it's surprisingly good stuff from South Carolina. Their legislators are usually pretty bad. But this shows how heavy grassroots pressure can actually move things forward.
@Monorprise That could be coming pretty soon in Colorado and Washington State.

@J Valenzuela right on. that I can work with and actually appreciate that kind of feedback.
"quite irresponsible" ? not so much.

@dmellon @BobBowser Bob also doesn't pay attention to the FACT that the bill requires state and local law enforcement to stop enforcing federal gun control measures.
That - in and of itself - will, as Judge Napolitano has recently said - render federal gun laws "nearly impossible to enforce."
The question - will Kansans do what's needed to make that happen? With Bob's attitude? no. but I'm positive that people will do the right thing next. There's a link in the article above that gives specific action items for Kansans to effectuate the law to the fullest extent.

@dmellon @BobBowser exactly. people with an all or nothing attitude are very destructive of efforts to move towards freedom.
Every step forward, small or big, is important. bob is either a troll working for the ATF or just misinformed.
@J Valenzuela a better approach would have been to say -
"Hey man, solid article. But, I bet there's some jerk out there that's going to take this sentence out of context, here's my thoughts..."
@J Valenzuela so yeah, when you overdo it with a word like "irresponsible" I'm not going to respond as if you're friendly, dude. When you start crap with people - sometimes they don't like it.
Next time, I'm sure we can have a more friendly conversation because you won't start it out like that in my home, deal?
to add, nothing exists in a vacuum as you've done with that one sentence in my article. I recommend Rothbard's advice for your perspective:
"For the libertarian, the main task of the present epoch is to cast off his needless and debilitating pessimism, to set his sights on long-run victory and to set about the road to its attainment."
@J Valenzuela Irresponsible? dude, you're on crack. that's so nitpicky it's absurd. if you read the one sentence on its own and don't have any context that our goal is to fight unconstitutional federal acts - sure.
But dude - no way. the whole goal here is the constitution. don't be silly - using "irresponsible" is just that. silly.
@PKato69 neither of them are my type, so no thanks.
And in the future, mind keeping it clean here?
@justinmontana Liberal states are saying no to unconstitutional acts as well - but likely on issues that aren't on your radar. Maryland just nullified unconstitutional federal "laws" on marijuana. Illinois is getting closer to doing the same - AND nullifying warrantless drone spying.
The more these things happen - the better. Overwhelm the feds, and let each state make their own choices - and the feds will be out of your life on issues important to you.
@tkenorth dude. this is a sarcastic attack on the so-called libertarian creep who head's up the CATO institute's board....who wrote the article linked at the end of the blog post. check it out.

@onetenther yeah, I think the MO house could easily impeach this guy. He's claiming in the AP that this is just some form letter - and that "other governors received the same"
So other governors violated their state laws too - this whole thing might blow up in his face. It should.

@Bud Brota First you have to get it through the house. Then it's going to take some work to ensure that all state and local law enforcement is in compliance - rather than playing patsy to the feds. It's not a fast process, but well underway with this bill.
