The actual outcome and legalities will take some time to evolve, but the Democrats got what they needed; the lackey media giants git to blast Joe’s major steps to stop gun violence. Legal, impractical, enforceable, effective or logical are all far less important than the optics.

Would it? Almost every "2A Sanctuary" bill I've ever seen merely said that state resources would not be used to help enforce new federal laws. That's completely meaningless. Any new law need merely be bundled with a charge under an old law and, voila'!, the state authorities will still help the feds do their thing. Even if the feds don't bundle infractions, the 2A Sanctuary bills merely provide that state authorities won't help. There's nothing to prevent the ATF from arresting someone in a 2A Sanctuary state and then plopping them into the nearest Fusion Center holding cell to await hearings in the nearest federal court. If they structure their enforcement right, the ATF doesn't need help from any state.

Most "2A Sanctuary from the feds" actions are nothing more than virtue signalling from the right, the same sort of crap we deride the leftists for doing.

Now, the County Sheriffs who have declared 2A sanctuaries against state law may be a good thing with some utility. But the anti-fed stuff? That's just posturing.

As another poster has said, those declarations by a state will only have some small meaning when the state encourages a suppressor manufacturer to sell in their state without involving the feds. And that meaning will remain small and useless unless the state also commits LE personnel to directly protect that company from the ATF agents who will come calling.

In short, until Texas Rangers are physically barring Special Agents with the BATFE from enforcing laws, something that will probably require gunfire to be effective, 2A Sanctuary bills/laws/status will remain utterly meaningless and useless.
Largely symbolic.

But sometimes symbology is important.

If it was truly about saving lives they would be going after pistols way more people are killed from someone using a pistol than all rifles and shotguns combined. It's all about being able to control the people. They are just trying to ban guns that are the biggest threat to them. It has nothing to do with saving lives

Welcome to TGT.

It never has been about saving lives, and it never will be about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. That is just the narrative they feed the voters to make them feel all warm and fuzzy at night.

It's always been about power and control.

Ask any good totalitarian leader what is the 2 things one must do to gain and remain in power.

Control the information

Disarm the population.


They be working on both folks.

Time to wake up and smell the coffee.

I don’t think a 3D printer is really a tool in the fight against gun control. It may be a way to make something the the gov says is illegal or has banned the sale of, but the gun control and infringements are still there and within a generation most everyone’s kids or grandkids will have turned all of it over to law enforcement when their parents pass away because with most have it no way to learn about firearms or go shooting without the risk of the ATF showing up there will be no connection making keeping anything found worth the risk.
Proliferating and normalizing civil disobedience is definitely an effective tool. It could be a fun activity for little Timmy every time he goes to grandpa's house he gets to print, assemble, and shoot one of those illegal ghost guns. Then at the end of the day it gets dissembled and ground up for recycling. Kids love doing illegal stuff.

Timmy also loves banging his teacher. But he can’t keep his mouth shut about it. Kids love bragging about doing illegal things so Grandpa and teacher end up in jail.

With enough people committing civil disobedience, prison is just a place to visit your friends. Heck, you might even get the chance to beat a pedo to death.

I think I should re-watch "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" and spend some time contemplating how the world has changed over the course of my lifetime.
