    Scott Walker asks attorney general to review Obama's gun actions

    "President Obama is again disregarding the constitutional principles of separation of powers and exceeding his authority as chief executive. The Obama administration issued guidance creating uncertainty and fear of prosecution for law-abiding citizens who wish to exercise their right to sell firearms lawfully. Forthcoming federal rules could also deprive millions of Americans of their Second Amendment rights without any indication of imminent danger," Walker said in a statement.

    "I have asked the attorney general to review this proposed rule language as soon as it is made available and, if issued as reported, to take any and all legal measures available to challenge this illegal act."

    "Obama + governors + resist + guns"

    https://news.google.com/news/rtc?ncl=dwvQmlcaryzLpeM 10,000+ Articles ATM. One mentions Governor Walker

    At the moment, as best as I can tell, Governor Scott Walker is the only governor citing the powers of his office in resisting Obama.

    Walker could direct all state, county, local LEAs to ignore these federal overreaches. He could direct all of the these LEAs to not enforce what he considers unconstitutional (state/federal) laws.He could direct these LEAs to arrest federal agents who harass WI citizens. Some how I don't think he will. So, is Walker really working to restore individual liberty? No, nor is any other chief executive. Nor is any LEA top cop and his minions, anywhere.

    Did not many of the several states sue the feds over something else of great public concern?

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    No more than the toothless tyrant Obama, a governor has no power to declare anything significant.

    Nope. They would be 'enforcing' federal law/regulations, he's got absolutely no say in that, whatsoever.
