Is the 2nd Amendment important do you and do you believe states are sovereign? If you answered yes, then watch this video and take a stand. Your voice needs to be heard today. Not tomorrow, not next week, but today.
The 10th Amendment Says
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
In 2013 Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed into law House Bill 2199, also known as ‘The Second Amendment Protection Act’ which states – that any federal gun control laws that may be passed are not valid in the state of Kansas under the new law. The bill also prevents any federal agent from enforcing federal gun control laws within the state, as well as allowing prosecution of federal officers who try to enforce such laws within the state’s borders.
Additionally, the statute purportedly exempts from federal gun-control laws the firearms, accessories and ammunition manufactured commercially or privately in Kansas and kept within the state’s borders. The Kansas act made it a felony for a federal official to enforce certain directives of Congress regarding firearms.
But………………Citizens Get Thrown Under the Bus
Prosecutors for the Federal Government have charged Shane Cox, owner of Tough Guys gun store in Chanute, of illegally making and marketing firearms, specifically sound suppressors. Prosecutors as well have accused Jeremy Kettler, a disabled U.S. Army veteran, as a Tough Guys client who acquired a “silencer” from Cox and filmed a live-fire test of the gear. Everything these men did were supposed to be protected by the Kansas 2nd Amendment Protection Act, but Gov. Brownback has not come to their defense and neither has their Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.
Jeremy Kettler as you’ll see at the end of this video is a young man, with a young family and young children. He has never been charged or convicted with a crime and everything he did, he did based on the belief that his behavior was completely lawful, based on Kansas law and with the expectation that if need be the state of Kansas would step in on his behalf to defend his rights.
Well the Federal Government in a brutal and sadistic act of shameless authority and disregard for the 2nd Amendment, Kansas law and this young man’s family, wants to put him in jail.
