Even though the U.S. Senate was unable to muster the votes for a gun control bill this time around, it doesn’t mean they’ll stop. They never stop. States must pass laws that protect their citizens from ambitious D.C. politicians. Governor Sam Brownback of Kansas signed a law doing just that:
(TOPEKA, Kan.)—Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a bill into law declaring that the federal government has no power to regulate guns manufactured, sold and kept only in Kansas.
The legislation signed Tuesday also applies to ammunition made, sold and kept in the state. The new law takes effect by the end of next week and makes it a felony for a federal agent to enforce any law, regulation, order or treaty regulating such items.
But the bill also says federal agents won't be arrested or detained if they face trial for violating the law.
