All of our republican governors and republican controlled state legislatures need to enact similar laws.

Good start. Next step would be stop just standing by idly while the feds violate their citizens’ rights. IOW, interposition, or actual affirmative defense (both legal and physical) of state citizens from the enforcement of federal laws found by the state to be in violation of the Constitution.

Do they know something we don’t? I wonder if there’s something in the pipe in DC.

Florida needs to stop sending CCW info to states that like Maryland who just use this data to pull over and harass innocent drivers who pass through their state.

Thats what GA needs to do. Actually we need to kick all these Feds out of the state and back up to DC where they belong.

I'm telling you the States like Florida will eventually save the Republic by doing exactly things such as this...

By legislating the Federal government out of their lives..

Forget about Congress or the SOTUS...both are a lost cause

I think you Crist...

But hey, Jesus Christ as Governor would be awesome...

BTW, almost every liberal I know will not be voting for Charlie Crist, and will pull the lever for Scott, with their noses pinched...

Even liberals knows Crist is a fraud...

I don't think so. To start with, turning water into wine without a license has to be against the law. And multiplying loaves and fish would get Publix and Winn-Dixie on his case.

Don’t forget the ‘Possum Police (game departments, NOAA(fish regulations in salt water), IRS( can’t allow any poaching in the money preserve), etc.

I received an NRA email alert that makes it sound like this bill would do more harm than good because some Federal Laws actually benefit us.
