    Cool, sorry. Skimming Mr. Berman's other bills, he seems like a good guy.

    I'm loving it!!
    Tell BIG Brother to STEP THE F**** OFF!!!!
    Somewhere way back when the fed just forgot we have a constitution.
    Montana and Texas are leading the way in what I hope is a resurgence of state rights over the Fed.:texas:

    It's going to be like the medical marijuana laws in California. The Feds are still going to have jurisdiction over Federal firearms laws, and nothing is really going to change.

    Can we at least hope and pry that it makes a difference?:patriot:
    I am sure things may not change but the more states that stand up for their individual state rights and the more media coverage it gets, possibly some of the sheep will wake up.
    It's a situation of educating the sheep.
    As long as they know no better then the status-quo stays the same.
    The more these kind of issues stay in the public eye the better chance we have of some successful movement forward.
    I try very hard to be optimistic in today's political environment.
    If you don't stay optimistic then you have already given up - IMO!

    Actually, I had an interesting angle to this pointed out to me.

    If a local government makes a law before the next level "up" makes one that countermands it, the local law stays in place. So, in the event of any bans... :devil:
