"Not long ago I wrote an article on nullification for a well-known libertarian publication. Nullification is the idea, pioneered by Thomas Jefferson and John C. Calhoun, that an American state has the right to 'nullify' federal legislation that it believes violates the Constitution. As Virginian political thinker Abel Upshur put it, since no common umpire exists between the federal government and the states to render judgments on breaches of the Constitution, each state – as a constituent part and co-creator of the Union – has to make such determinations for itself."

"Since the creation of the National Instant Criminal Background Check, or NICS, administered by the FBI to screen firearm sales, 10,000 people forbidden from owning guns have obtained them despite FBI screenings, according to the Bureau of Alcohol and Firearms."

"The poor quality of criminal records maintained by states is the main reason the NICS system fails to identify individuals prohibited from acquiring guns..."

"Just a month after Officer Schmidt admitted simple assault in an incident with his girlfriend, a federal law took effect banning anyone who commits domestic violence from having a gun. The law was retroactive."

Conveniently, the "victim" once again lives with him and has changed her story, so he's no longer prosecutable.
