It's like Jeb Bush said to himself "How can I make a bunch of people say

"HELL no, I'm not voting for him!" ?"
COLBERT: Well, the right to have an individual firearm to protect yourself is a national document, in the Constitution, so shouldn’t that also be applied national —

BUSH: No. Not necessarily… There’s a 10th amendment to our country, the Bill of Rights has a 10th amendment that says powers are given to the states to create policy, and the federal government is not the end all and be all. That’s an important value for this country, and its an important federalist system that works quite well. 
Yes, I know, Colbert doesn't know the 2nd(big surprise, huh?), concentrate on that crap from Bush.

Yeah, that's a REAL winning idea for a rather large part of the voting population, isn't it?

No, I didn't like him to start with; along with all else, a politician who plays the Arafat game* needs to be kept as far from the Oval Office as possible.  This is just the effing cherry on the parfait of "Jeb Bush really sucks, doesn't he?"

*Say one thing in one language, another in another; Bush saying 'No amnesty' in English, then going on Telemundo and saying "I want amnesty" in Spanish.  Miserable little shit.

Isnt so called " Sanctuary " cities violating federal law? They used the same defense when they justified not enforcing federal law. Just like Marijuana is against FEDERAL law, but the states are doing their own thing and feds are letting them. People don't understand we're a Republic, not a democracy. What about 50 United states don't people get.

YEah, the 2nd should be left to the states but not the rest of them. Freedom of association, religion, etc., anyone?

Bush is a miserable little shit, but that's neither here nor there. Bush doesn't matter, he's a distraction.

The Republican nomination is still in the "three-ring-circus" stage and will be for another six or seven months.

Hillary is deconstructing herself more and more each day. No one knows who the nominees might be.

For myself, I don't intend to start paying attention to presidential politics for the next six months.

Bob M - so all of your examples are wrong acts, and if we had a AG that enforced law, they would all be stopped. A state can not ignore a protected right. Now, exactly where the line between "acceptable" protection to the public vs "infringement" is a rather open question. However, as IL found out, bearing arms in public must be permitted in at lease some form.
