Skip to comments.ATF to Tennessee: We're Above Your Law
Posted on 07/17/2009 5:55:50 PM PDT by Copernicus
The ATF - as expected - has issued a letter in which it disregards the 10th Amendment restrictions on federal power (as seems to be the trend since the late 1930) and has notified Tennessees federal firearms dealers that the Tennessee Firearms Freedom Act is meaningless. Essentially, ATF is saying to the state of Tennessee that the 10th Amendment no longer exists.
We expected such from a tyranny that no longer lives within the bounds of its express authority

Best regards to all,
bump ,, looking for the lead soon ,, it’s coming ,,, people getting all they can take of the FED’S ,,,,,
Yep. The states have no representation and the people have no control over the Senate. Since the 17th amendment, they are a rogue body of government, and answer to no one.
It’s happened before with them darn revenuers!
(Sounds like a great name for a convenience store!)
simple answer to problem, new law
Any person who attempts to enforce any Federal Law without the Express Written Consent of the County Sheriff, Shall be Guilty of Treason. All persons arrested for Treason Shall be Tried immediately upon Arrest. The Jury shall be members of the Family or an agent or agents appointed by the person they are trying to enforce said Federal Law against. Upon Conviction Defendant shall be Executed Immediately.
They’ll enforce their fed laws ONCE.

rammed through the direct election of Senators.”
It started way before that...
Well several states have now passed these things. Will be interesting to see when someone will start making firearms for sale only in the state of manufacture.
Only then will we know for sure how the federal courts will react to the Feds overstep of the Constitution.
Well, if you’re going to say that State law in effect supercedes federal regulation that violates the 10th,
why would you give any credence to a FEDERAL court that rules against you?
The legislatures should simply follow up with a law stating that federal courts have no jurisdiction superceding a state’s legislature when the matter at hand is internal to the state.
They completely ignore the fact that the federal government claims that the “interstate commerce clause” is what gives them the power to regulate firearms and simply say, “Your law is void because we said so”.
Statists only understand brute force. TN take note and take care of things.
I think a 50cal. would look good on the front lawn.
Shoot, seat belt laws and all the other uniformity you find in the States in regard to transportation makes enumerated powers of the Federal Government a joke. They just use the Federal Income tax to suck dollars from the States, then demand adherence to certain guidelines in order for the States to receive back their sheckles. Pretty cool way to exert extra/constitutional powers on the States. They do that in a whole lot of ways. Federal Sheckles, rifled from the residents of the States are used to bludgeon the States into submission.
We've seen the BATF Gestapo in action before, backed by the likes of Erik Holder (Janet Reno's houseboy) and a libtard prezident.
