Missouri takes the lead as the new heart of sedition in Civil War 2. Honest Abe maneuvered the South into firing on Fort Sumter by sending a resupply convoy into Charleston harbor. Maybe the President can instruct the ATF and FBI to send expeditions to the Show Me State after its crazy legislature makes criminals of them when they try to enforce national gun law, provoking an armed confrontation.
“Missouri is only the beginning,” one of the new rebels against federal tyranny tells the New York Times newspaper.
“I’ve got five different states that want a copy [of our bill].”
I think it would be great entertainment to fire a volley of cruise missiles into Jefferson City, Missouri, instead of a piss ant country like Syria, for a change, don’t you? They’re very precise, I hear.
Unless a handful of wavering Democrats change their minds, the Republican-controlled Missouri legislature is expected to enact a statute next month nullifying all federal gun laws in the state and making it a crime for federal agents to enforce them here. A Missourian arrested under federal firearm statutes would even be able to sue the arresting officer.
The law amounts to the most far-reaching states’ rights endeavor in the country, the far edge of a growing movement known as “nullification” in which a state defies federal power.
The Missouri Republican Party thinks linking guns to nullification works well, said Matt Wills, the party’s director of communications, thanks in part to the push by President Obama for tougher gun laws. “It’s probably one of the best states’ rights issues that the country’s got going right now,” he said.
