Idaho governor signs emergency legislation nullifying all future federal gun laws
On 3-21-2014 Idaho Governor Butch Otter (R) signed a bill, which would effectively nullify future federal gun laws, by prohibiting state enforcement of any future federal act relating to personal firearms, a firearm accessories or ammunition.S1332 passed the house by a vote of 68-0 and the senate by a vote of 34-0. Alaska and Kansas have also passed similar laws.
Signing this nullification bill into law is a loud clear message to the Federal government and the obama administration that the citizens of Idaho support and uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. The Free men and women of Idaho will never again accept unconstitutional gun control infringements by an out of control Federal government.
The State Affairs Committee, The Idaho Federal Firearm, Magazine and Register Ban Enforcement Act, will:
“protect Idaho law enforcement officers from being directed, through federal executive orders, agency orders, statutes, laws, rules, or regulations enacted or promulgated on or after the effective date of this act, to violate their oath of office and Idaho citizens’ rights under Section 11, Article I, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho.”The legislation continued:
any official, agent or employee of the state of Idaho or a political subdivision thereof who knowingly and willfully orders an official, agent or employee of the state of Idaho or a political subdivision of the state to enforce any executive order, agency order, law, rule or regulation of the United States government as provided in subsection (2) of this section upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition shall, on a first violation, be liable for a civil penalty not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) which shall be paid into the general fund of the state…
S1332 also includes an emergency provision meaning it takes effect immediately upon signature.
Passage into law represents a giant step forward in protecting the right to keep and bear arms in Idaho. As the law now stands, state and local law enforcement will not cooperate with all future federal firearm laws.
The bill rests on a well-established legal principle known as the anti-commandeering doctrine. Simply put, the federal government cannot force states to help implement or enforce and federal act or program The anti-commandeering doctrine rests primarily on four Supreme Court cases dating back to 1842. Is is the Printz v. United States case which serves as the cornerstone.
Let us hope the other Free States of the Union will hear this call to defend the United States Constitution against all powers ...Foreign and Domestic.
"The rights of Free Men do not derive from any governmental body, instead they are rights handed down from the Creator. These rights are more valuable then gold or silver and are the corner stone of any Free society. Americans must be vigilant at all times, because Freedom, Liberty, and Justice are despised by Dictators, Tyrants, and Intellectually vain men. It is these cowardly despots who through unjust laws, biased media, and nefariously constructed bureaucracies seek to undermine the foundations of a once free nation.
If the Union is to be saved it must be done one state at a time. The battle is late and the outcome of the war on freedom is in question.
Either, The Union will be saved because brave Americans, irregardless of the cost, stood up and defended the Bill of Rights. OR...They will say nothing because Slaves are not allowed to speak unless their Master gives them permission..."
