MO: Missouri Has Declared Federal Gun Laws Invalid. Can It Do That?

While states can't invalidate federal law, they can decide the extent to which they assist federal law enforcement.

"Under the 10th Amendment, states do have the right to withhold the use of their resources to enforce federal laws," says Allison Anderman, senior counsel at Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

"We're just simply saying we're not going to lift a finger to enforce their rules," Missouri state Sen. Eric Burlison, a Republican, said of the bill last month, according to The Kansas City (Mo.) Star.

Typical NPR nonsense.

Can they do it?

Hell YES!

All leftist publications conveniently omit that there is a specific requirement to make a federal law supreme. Said law must be made "in pursuance thereof" [i.e., of the Constitution] to be considered the supreme law of the land.

Article IV says so, black-letter.

All MO's law does is to stipulate that federal laws that violate the Bill of Rights will not be sanctioned, nor will any state law enforcement or subdivision assist in their enforcement.

And that is within states' powers protected by the 10th Amendment.

Typo correction:

Article VI, not Article IV.
