The Bored Supremacy

Walp, it's official. There are 13 bonafide village idiots in the state Senate. At least, that's the number of senators who've signed on as sponsors for legislation to pre-emptively nullify federal gun control laws. F'rinstance:

Sec. 3. A personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Michigan and that remains within the borders of Michigan is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce. ...

This is just like that nutty lightbulb legislation that Tom McMillin introduced and got passed in the House. It also brings to mind the time that Rick Jones tried to insert language into the bullying bill that assured everyone that state law couldn't infringe on anyone's First Amendment rights.

Laugh while you can, sunshines, but the same people who've never heard of the Constitution's Supremacy Clause are writing your laws. Once that dawns on you, you'll sleep like a baby ... waking every couple of hours and screaming into the night.

They should be rounded up for treason, which, ironically, is what they are claiming to legislate against.  We fought a war over this; this is a decided issue.  STOP this madness, already.

Gun manufacturing
is not exactly one of the state's main industries. As far as I know, the only thing close to it are a couple of small shops that produce gun sights and other accessories. I believe Arizona has a similar law already on their books, and are currently suing the feds over the Commerce Clause aspect of regulation. These Senators are trying to burnish their bona fides with the base (aka pandering). What else is there for Republicans to do now that they've shifted the tax burden away from business and passed RTW in the lame duck?  

I am disgusted
to see my Senator, Colbeck, is on this list of idiots. http://www.legislature.mi.gov/...
