The 10th Amendment and a possible assault weapons ban.

25 02 2009

People continuously ask us in the store about a new AWB (Assault Weapons Ban) and what the odds are. I have recently come across a new movement in the country where states are re-affirming their rights under the 10th Amendment. But first, what the heck does the 10th Amendment say?

TENTH AMENDMENT: 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.

So what exactly does that mean? Lets go here to see what the says:

In a nutshell, if the Constitution does not give the Federal government the power the States have THAT power. Several states have legislation pending that affect guns as well. Montana has a bill that says, in a nutshell the Federal ban on weapons does not apply in Montana to include newly manufactured in Montana. This can not be good news for the ATF and they surely are not happy about it. But as long as the weapon does not enter inter-state commerce why should the Federal government have any say at all in what happens with that gun and it’s owner?

People, I highly encourage you to get with your pro-liberty Legislators and get a bill like this started in your State. Get involved and get a movement going to re-affirm your rights and the States rights that the Federal government has usurped.
