Exactly. About the only thing it really means is that the states are sticking their tongues out at the feds. If I went to Thunderbeast arms in Cheyenne and showed them my Wyoming drivers license, do you think they would sell me a supressor and skip the tax stamp? Hard no. Maybe if it was a federally illegal drug, like marijuana, meth, heroin or so on, they would sell it to me and the feds would just look the other way for everyone involved, because that makes sense......but instead, since it's an evil device that makes it to where my rifle won't damage my hearing, the feds gotta get involvedSo did Idaho! Not sure how it has played out. Nobody I know wants to be the guinea pig, since it is a mandatory felony if convicted.
+1. I'm over simplifying but, just use the same argument in court that sanctuary cities have used....good for the goose, good for the gander.We've had it in TN for years. Our law is very clear..
States don't answer to the federal government. I realize that they stopped teaching people about the constitution in school, but it is very clear on this matter. States grant authority to the federal government, not the other way around. This has been hashed out to the point that they created the 10th ammendment to make this painfully clear.
Don't fear the ATF in your state if you are following state law. When they start arresting people in California and Illinois for buying weed in stores, you can be concerned. Be bold my friends. We are unafraid here in Tennessee.
