TN Gov. Signs Bill Prohibiting State Cooperation with Fed Gun Control Laws

From a story located at:

My Comment:

All you people have a real hard time understanding the Federalist Papers, the Supremacy Clause and the notion we are the United States of America. There have been half dozen cases before the Supreme Court about the legitimacy of the States right to secede throughout our history.

           States do not have the right to secede. Elected officials and judges in every state are bound by the Supremacy Clause. Each judge and elected official take an oath to uphold the Constitution and if they violate that oath there are Sedition Laws (re-codified in 1998) and the 14th Amendment, paragraph III, to deal with the traitors.

           After the Civil War, our government reaffirmed the Supremacy Clause and put into law remedies to insure rogue legislators never again try to destroy our nation. After all, the legislators seceded, not the people. In the end, the Supremacy Clause prevailed.

            Those laws and an Amendment to the Constitution specifically targeted legislators and judges intent on destroying the United States.

             We are the United States of America and no state or legislator, Federal or State, can insight insurrection or vote to nullify US Law. The concept is centered on the idea that America is greater when united around one government.

             Rather than have a loose confederation of independent states all making their own laws or individually determining what civil liberties its citizens live under, it has been determined that United we stand, separate we fall.

             All men are created equal and are entitled to equal protection under the law. United States law, not State law. This concept is set in stone and is very conservative. Lawmakers are bound by oath and by law to uphold this principal.

You would not want to live in a state that no longer enjoys the protections of Federal Law. States like Texas, Tennessee would be horrible places to live, and the only thing that keeps them American is Federal Law.

            There is no State Right to destroy the solidarity of our nation. There is no State Right to nullify Federal Law. There is no State Right to break up our nation. I am conservative. I love my nation just the way it is. I believe in the rule of law.

I oppose anyone that wants to destroy what has worked for more than 200 years. I do not suffer from multiple persecution complexes and I do not practice delusions of grandeur as many commenters have displayed in response to this article. In other words, I am not paranoid.
