Poll: Majority Support For Nullification, State Power Over Gun Laws


As a number of pro-gun State legislatures step up to protect their residents from un-Constitutional Federal gun legislation, a poll released by Rasmussen this week indicates that they have national majority opinion on their side.

According to the poll, a majority of respondents support the idea of nullification—that States can invalidate unConstitutional Federal laws within their own borders—with 52 percent supporting States’ rights to block any Federal laws they disagree with on legal grounds.

Specifically on the issue of gun rights, 40 percent of respondents believe the Federal government should be chiefly responsible for setting policies about gun ownership and 49 percent preferred that firearm policies be set at the local and State level.

    It’s disgusting that so many people are unaware of the law we live under. According to the Constitution, neither Federal nor State government have any say on our natural/God given right to self defense. If everyone, including our ‘law makers’ knew the law and obeyed their oath of office, this would be a non-issue.
