- Wyoming House votes to block proposed federal firearms regulations 01-31-13
How can the Supreme Court affirm that federal law supercedes state law when the Tenth Amendment remains a valid part of the Constitution, eh? Sure, the feds can threaten and can coerce (and they regularly do, most often by threatning to withhold federal funding for one thing or another), but can they effectively nullify the Tenth Amendment? I'm not so sure about that!

- Georgia's Jury Nullification Act 01-26-13
I agree with the lawmaker that's working on this particular piece of legislation, and I'm glad Georgia at least is working to do something about the deliberate ingorance of so many jurors. It's wonderful that a state is doing something on its own to counteract various and sundry federally made decisions that effectively conspired to take lawful authority away from juries, but I believe that this matter also deserves to be federally addressed!

- Mississippi bill would nullify federal laws 01-24-13
Thanks to the usual suspects (you guessed it: Democrats, for whom there's nothing that isn't the government's business), passing the bill could prove difficult at best. But it's a brave first foray, and it's eminently sensible if you consider facts over feelings.
