Unconstitutional laws are illegitimate. We need to start openly questioning the legitimacy of FedGov actions, as well as state and local actions that cross the line.

Also heard on Guntalk with Tom Gresham, that a Florida judge ruled in was unconstitutional for a doctor to ask their patients about owning guns!
