    Unconstitutional Texas Bill Would Make Enforcing Federal Gun Laws A Felony | NationofChange
    Ian Millhiser
    16 January 2013

    Texas State Rep. Steve Toth (R-TX), with the apparent support of at least one of Texas’ most powerful politicians, will introduce unconstitutional legislation subjecting federal law enforcement officers to arrest and prosecution if they enforce new gun safety laws in the Lone Star State:

    <snip>


    Article VI, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution
    This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.


    Interesting -- Texas State Rep. Steve Toth (R-TX), wants to protect his view of the Constitution of the United States by introducing legislation to "undermine" the Constitution of the United States. Republicans aren't the protectors of the constitution they pretend to be.

    "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

    The 10th Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified as part of the Bill of Rights on December 15, 1791. It is the key amendment reinforcing the idea of federalism. In other words, that unless the Constitution specifically gave a power to the federal government or denied it to the states, then it was reserved for the states

    Treaties that conflict with our Constitutional rights will not be ratified. Treaties by Executive Order will be unconstitutional.

    Fuck Obama, Hillary and the United Nations!

    What if the next POTUS issued an Executive Order to have you drawn and quartered at dawn?

    Not that there would be anything wrong with that.

    Supremacy., right?


    THINK - then start threads.

    Article I, Section 8, Clause 18, AKA - Necessary and Proper Clause, AKA - Coefficient or Elastic Clause:
    The Congress shall have Power To ...make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.



    I'm far from being a constitutional lawyer, but in my layman's view, the Feds would override the 10th Amendment with the Supremacy Clause of Article 6 Clause 2 via the Necessary and Proper Clause in Article I, Section 8, Clause 18



    Necessary and Proper Clause
    At the Constitutional Convention, the Committee of Detail took the Convention's resolutions on national legislative authority and particularized them into a series of enumerated powers. This originated the principle of enumerated powers, under which federal law can govern only as to matters within the terms of some power-granting clause of the Constitution. By including the Necessary and Proper Clause, the Framers set the criterion for laws that, even if they are not within the terms of other grants, serve to make other federal powers effective.

    Steve Toth, Wayne Christian, Louis Gohmert and the other ultra right anti American legislators from Texas are the worst dupes and running dogs of those who hate America.
