    Kirk, I get why you believe these types of laws/resolutions are political theater only and argue against spending time on these at the expense of other concerns; but if a State truly puts their money where their mouth is on this wouldn't it at least have the impact of requiring the Feds to spend a great deal more time, money and resources chasing these prosecutions without any local assistance? Kind of a local version of the "heckler's veto" we often reference? On the other hand it may spur the Feds to apply the jackboot more firmly on the neck of the "provincials". My point is that I'm not certain these laws are completely irrelevant.

    Something like . . . oh, I don't know . . . abolition of the short barreled shotgun ban, LTCH holders exempt from NICS check, LTCH exempted from school property, making the LTCH easier to procure for out of state residents (free money for the state), LTCH exempts IGS and statehouse bans, firearms training being made an above the line tax deduction, mandate firearms training in schools and before driver's license issued, graduation from high school and before voting, etc, inter alia, ad naseum.

    There is too much work to do to screw around with empty political theater nonsense. I am uncertain why the gun culture digs these empty Kentucky Resolutions but we need to focus on getting the field plowed not on Big Rock Candy Mountain.

    Kirk, isn't this beyond the reach of the GA, considering NICS is federal?
    No. The GA simply needs to fund the ISP so they no longer have an excuse.

    The NFA is a federal law.

    No, federal law enforcement has unlimited time, money and people.

    Feckless, grandiose political gestures which are ultimately empty do not move the ball.

    Everyone wants to be a kung fu master but no one wants to stand in horse stance for an hour. Everyone wants to be a "gunfighter" but no one wants to get up early in the morning and do reloading drills until your hands are numb.

    As Professor Reynolds says, the courts cannot go where the culture has not. We need to change the culture to not just pro-gun, but must-gun. The way to do this is at the state level at first.

    Indiana has a supermajority in both chambers and a pro-gun Gov. We need to do far more than be able to be allowed to put pistols in the trunks of cars at school!

    More meaningless election year political theater. About as functional as beating sand.

    Kirk, I beg to disagree. If for nothing else it sends a message to Washington that people are getting fed up. It may take awhile but eventually I hope the politicians in Washington will start to pay attention since how the State Legislature votes so should the State representatives in Washington lest they be out of a job come election time. No vote or legislation is meaningless if it conveys the wishes of the people and not the political machine.

    Idaho legislature passes empty, emotional pablum to mollify gun owners while screwing them over on substantive legislation.

    Empty gesture or not, it's awesome. I'd love to see Indiana do this, and all the other states.
