    We are the United States of America, not the United countries of America. I agree that it would be unconstitutional to simply take away our right to have firearms, but our government is designed to handle things in a certain manner.

    The truth is that states have only so much power. Our country was purposely designed that way ever since we got rid of the Articles of Confederation (which failed miserably by the way). So I think this guy is comming close to commiting treason by showing himself as a military man, even though I am a proud gun owner and believe vary strongly that I, being a responsible and respectful citizen, have the right to own firearms.

    This guy apparently knows little of the growth our country went through after the articles of confederation.

    What the heck are the states going to do if the suceed??

    People are complaining about the lack of protective geer for the military in the United states. Is Oklahoma going to come up with the 50 billion in research and development for a new stealth plain? Or the 3.5 million apiece for each tank, 47 million for new fighter plains? the untold amount of money for the interstate highways??

    Face it, the states are well intigrated and cutting themselves off of the federal govn't is going to do a lot of damage.

    I think you need to reread the Constitution about the allocation of power.
