MO: States' rights be damned. The House again does the NRA's bidding.

Once upon a time, Missouri gun-rights activists proudly upheld this state’s right to pass and enforce its own laws. If you didn’t like them, well, you were free to move to another state. That concept of states’ rights used to be a bedrock philosophy of the Republican Party in its campaign against federal overreach.

Now, Republicans aren’t so sure that states know what’s best for themselves, and maybe a whole lot of federal intrusion might be the best way to go. On Wednesday, the House of Representatives kneeled to pressure from the National Rifle Association and approved a bill that would allow federal law to supersede the ability of individual states to enforce their own gun laws.

MO: States' rights be damned. The House again does the people's bidding.

There, now it is correct!

What these idiots fail to grasp is that the NRA has so much power because they represent so many citizens. The NRA is the people's voice (usually), and that is what sways Congress.

For the umpteen-thousandth time:

THERE IS NO 'STATES' RIGHTS' ISSUE.

Mandating Full Faith and Credit is a DELEGATED POWER (Article IV Section 1).

The 10th Amendment states quite clearly that only powers NOT delegated to the United States are reserved to the states or to the people.

NOT A 'STATES' RIGHTS' ISSUE.

Period.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. — John F. Kennedy
