Tenth Amendment Smokescreen

The lamestream media told you:

Several states have passed resolutions demanding Tenth Amendment rights.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Several states have sanctimoniously passed resolutions that are worthless trash demanding nothing designed to placate a half-asleep public. They mean nothing, have no effect in law, the spineless "servants" who introduce them know this, and act just so they can say, Oh what a good boy am I. Let one, just one, introduce such a bill with backbone and teeth, that truly repulses federal government intrusions and attacks on the 10th Amendment, and I'll change my tune.

I guess that would be Montana, which has enacted a 10th-Amendment-based statute called the Montana Firearms Freedom Act. A nice rumor sheet about the bill has blazed across the web. My first hand details on the bill are posted below.

You should personally take up this cause, and ask your reps why they didn't actually stand up to stop the abuses and usurpations before now. Ask if they know their "joint resolutions" bills do nothing actual (they know this of course, so see what they tell you, it can be revealing). Ask if they would stand up to stop a single federal abuse -- like Montana is doing.

Or just coast along and be happy they passed those non binding feckless balderdash that makes you feel good provided you don't look at it too hard.
