  •  It imples that the military, police and national (0+ / 0-)

    guard must use only guns and ammo manufactured in-state.

    •  States quite clearly: (3+ / 0-)

      In violation of the laws therof.

      If the weapon or ammunition is legal in the state for officers of the law, it may be imported.

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

        violence that comes from guns purchased in low oversight states like VA.

        This idea is DOA (no humor intended).

        You can't make this stuff up.

          It's down.

          If a state wants to be "That State" where everybody leaving it gets searched because they allow cheap and plentiful guns, they can be my guest.

          •  lol so what, leaving that state (0+ / 0-)

            would mean going through a U.S Customs search of everything in your vehicle? Seriously?

            Gee, so much for a interstate rush hour commute. "Exhaustive state border cavity searches are taking longer than usual this morning...."

            And then there's the fact that ahem, it wouldn't be a SINGLE state, would it. It'd be more like..........half of the states. Certainly the Deep South. They'd keep THEIR damn-near non-existent gun laws in tact. (begs the question of "how does this repeal ever happen outside The Twilight Zone" again but I digress)

            Which brings us back to square one, basically.

            Your repeal plan is "a step in the right direction" but still not good enough.

            Still gotta do a full nationwide ban, door-to-door confiscation, mass imprisonment of violators, etc. And you gotta be prepared for - best case scenario - a few hundred Ruby Ridge fiascos. That'll be no problem however - I'm sure our tank driving, MP5 wielding, body armor clad militarized police will exercise the utmost restraint.

      •  So every state has to pass its own laws to allow (2+ / 0-)

        the military to bring weapons in?

        Hmm...

        I think this is opening up all sorts of federal/state problems that are wholly irrelevant to the gun problem we are trying to fix.

        •  Yup, they do. (1+ / 0-)

          Because I can't imagine any state not wanting those DOD budget bases.

          Follow the money.

            I might personally like a CA ban on nuclear weapons or drones... but I can see a few potential problems with having a "Union" if every state can control what the national military can use.

            I think Section 2 would introduce some really major bugs into the constitution for no reason at all.. or no reason that is relevant to our gun problem.
