Last night, Stephen Colbert looked at the recent state sovereignty movement in GOP-controlled states to basically try to nullify any new federal gun laws that may pass, and discussed it with former White House counsel Cliff Sloan, who explained to Stephen what's actually in the Constitution that these nullification idiots seem to be forgetting.
But folks, I'll tell you, there is another threat to America, and it is President Obama's recent 23-point executive order gun control grab-o-rama.Video below the fold.
This is a full-on assault on our right to full-on assault. That's why it is more important than ever to remember the gun rights advocate battle cry:CHARLTON HESTON (5/20/2000): From my cold, dead hands!Fun fact, that was his audition for When Harry Met Sally. Yet they gave the part to Meg Ryan. Tough being a conservative in Hollywood, I guess.
But this tyranny will not stand, man. True defenders of the Constitution are fighting back. Bills have been proposed in all of these states that would make it illegal to enforce any of the new federal gun control measures.
That's right. That means if an agent of the federal government tries to take your high capacity magazine, just call 911 and say, "Police, come quick, someone's trying to enforce the law!" Then they'll send a SWAT team to shoot themselves.
Because these states that aren't up here right now — these states, you know which ones they are — these states know that there is a higher authority than some stupid law made by Washington clowns on Capitol Hill. And that's some stupid law made by a local clown on your state capitol.
And nobody — but nobody — out-stupids Mississippi, where a new bill to protect state sovereignty has been proposed by state representative and man whose toys come to life at night.... (Stephen cracks up, and audience cracks up with him)
His new Mississippi law would "create a committee to help neutralize federal laws and regulations outside the scope of the powers" of the Constitution. Yes, all federal laws they disagree with would be neutralized. It's like legal Febreze. And I think he might want some Febreze after those two tempura shrimp are done mating on his upper lip.
