    This is great that the many states are recognizing that it's time to put the Fed Government in it's place. It should have been done along time ago.

    This sovereignty movement is a much-needed shot across Washington's bow and one source reports 35 states are at some stage of action.

    It could well be the catalyst that resurrects Free America. It really is about much more than guns.

    Absolutely!

    Texas's resolution states that any items/actions mandated by the federal government that do not meet those items enumerated in the Constitution as being allowed, and also their state constitution, will be rejected.. as in not done.

    Hoorah for Texas.

    Do'oh looked it up and by golly it's in current legislation. Can't for some reason get the text of the bill, and don't know what it covers. But it looks like it's going forward. And for some reason I can't derive from the KsGov website the laws concerning open carry. maybe I'm just not puttin in the correct question.
    ‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ Thomas Jefferson

    From the MN link under exemptions:
    (4) a firearm, other than a shotgun, that discharges two or more projectiles with one
    3.19activation of the trigger or other firing device.
    Huh, so.... Unless there is some definition of "shotgun" that I'm missing....this makes full auto shotguns exempt...... but rifles with birdshot are not exempt. Guess there are no Federal regulations againstrifles with birdshotso they are still ok. I'm moving to Minnesota and making me a drum magazine fedslugfiring supressed shotgun.

    The Democrat controlled House in Mississippi continues to suppress such legislation by holding it hostage in committee and refusing to let it come up for a vote on the floor. A caseof a few preventing the many from exercising their rights. I really wish we could clean "house" in Mississppi - we are way overdue! Take note Mr. Speaker!

    Brass Magnet,
    Unless we are talking slugs, each shotgun discharge by definition carries multiple projectiles. This must have been the Legislature's meaning.

    This might be in reference to double barreled shotguns that may only have one trigger that fires both barels.

    It's too bad the Montana legislation doesn't exempt full auto's.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Old dog and Task Force,

    I understand the "meaning" and why it was put in there but unless it's actually stated.... There may be a loophole there is all I'm saying.

    In WI, unfortunately, no matter what your critters do your governor won't sign it.

    Actually, my governor sucks, too. He just vetoed a no Brady check for concealed permit holders bill. He's up for reelection in 2010.

    It's high time Virginia gets started on this.

    Legislature has adjourned for now, but they will be back.

    Yeah, I could get behind a State that tossed out the NFA. Why so limp I wonder? If you're gonna tell the Fed what for, why only go halfway?

    It really only prevents any kind of AWB from affecting the state. It doesn't tear down any existing infringement.

    Boo....

    But it's something.... If Blowbama rams an AWB through, I know where I'm going to have a PO Box......

    Texas Legislature = Mega Fail
    The bill got through committee, but died afterwards.

    The governor should call a special session just for this bill. The Federal government has been acting unconstitutionally for too long, and that doesn't look like it will change any time soon.

    I'm sad to say Texas just ain't what it used to be. A little embarrassing.
