Tenthers are Pushing Back
In flyover country, out on the fringe where I live with my fellow 'yahoos' who dont like to be told how to live, there is an interesting rebellion going on. We 'Tenthers' are pushing back. Currently, 22 states have passed or are considering bills known as Firearms Freedom Acts. Such bills declare that guns, accessories, and ammunition made within a state, sold within that state and kept in that state are not subject to federal laws or regulations under the Interstate Commerce Clause of the Constitution. In sum, the states are seeking to nullify unconstitutional federal laws under the 10th Amendment.
