WEB Notes: All the blabber we heard over the years ago the states pushing out the Feds was a bunch of nonsense as we stated back then. The Feds will do what they want, when they want and the states will comply, that is the end of the story unfortunately.
Secretary of State Kris Kobach takes more than academic interest in the U.S. District Court trial Tuesday of two men who placed faith in Kansas lawmakers depicting a 2013 law as a shield from federal prosecution for anyone owning firearms made, sold and kept within Kansas.
Kobach, a former law professor who co-authored the Second Amendment Protection Act, said the case built by U.S. Department of Justice attorneys against Shane Cox and Jeremy Kettler was on shaky ground.
“This is a perfect example of a prosecution that should never occur,” Kobach said. “These are individuals who are law-abiding gun owners. Why would the Justice Department be going after somebody like this?”
“For believing and following the laws of the state of Kansas, I now find myself wrongfully accused in federal court,” said Kettler, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan before being honorably discharged. “The whole thing is ridiculous.”
