Satire: AG Declares Kansas Gun Law “Null and Void”
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 3 May 2013 | John Semmens

In a bid to protect the state’s right to determine the laws that apply within its borders, the Kansas legislature enacted a law barring any federal intervention against Second Amendment rights in their state. Under the Kansas law, guns manufactured and sold within the state to residents who keep the guns within the state are immune to federal interference.

Not so says US Attorney General Eric Holder. “This state’s naked attempt to assert so-called Tenth Amendment prerogatives has no standing,” Holder insisted. “The notion that powers not expressly delegated to the federal government by the Constitution are somehow reserved to the states has been defunct since the Roosevelt Administration.”

“Despite what Governor Brownback and his legislature may think, federal laws and regulations override any and all state actions,” Holder continued. “Just because the manufacture, sale, and ownership of a gun may occur totally within the boundaries of a state is a meaningless distinction.”

Harvard Constitutional scholar, Professor Chester Cringely, came down strongly on Holder’s side on the issue. “While the plain language of the Constitution seems to say that powers not explicitly granted to the federal government are reserved to the states this is not how the Court has read the document,” Cringely observed. “If federal regulations can penalize a farmer for growing and consuming his crop on his own land, as the Court decided they could in Wickard v. Filburn, they certainly can penalize those involved in firearms transactions and use even if all parties and all actions take place solely within one state. As the law stands now, states can only do what the federal government allows them to do. Governors who defy the Feds do so at their own risk.”

It’s not really satire if it is plausible and believable.

You are just giving them valid legal arguments to use in court that they are too stupid to figure out for themselves.

If it’s not plausible or believable it’s not very good satire.

I’m not giving them arguments. I worked with libs for 30 years. This is the way they think. They just might decline to admit it publicly.
