Then it has to be ratified by 2/3 or 36 states by their house and senate. Not going to happen. So Obama is throwing crap against the wall to see what sticks. Cudos to missouri government. There is a reason we have 3 branches of government. The executive branch cannot make laws or executive orders to take our guns.
Like I said, I do not necessarily agree with the gun law recommendations of the administration, but this law will surely be challenged in court, and arresting and charging federal officials for enforcing federal laws? How does that make us safer?
Even if they do seem to be unconstitutional, they are still the law of the land until a federal court, or the supreme court says otherwise. That is exactly why we have 3 branches of Government.
I do not think it is a wise use of our limited resources (tax dollars) to pass laws that will be surely thrown out when challenged at the federal level. Why not use that money to challenge the laws that the federal Govt puts in place if you think they are wrong. I mean people are more worried about this than providing proper education funding to our children. It is asinine to waste money in this manner. I am so sick of people talking about how poorly the government spends our tax dollars (not pointing the finger at anyone on here, just a generalization), but then they support passing laws like this that will either be entirely thrown out or partially thrown out if challenged by the federal government. It is a waste of money and time. There are other ways in which to protest that do not waste my tax dollars.
