KANSAS GOVERNOR SAM BROWNBACK’S RESPONSE TO ERIC HOLDER’S THREAT
Now that Eric Holder has suddenly appeared interested in the Constitution, all eyes are on Kansas as a state vs. fed battle brews. We published Holder’s venomous threat to Kansas a few days ago. Yesterday we posted the Kansas Secretary of State response, which included an epic verbal rebuke of Holder’s incorrect view of federal power. Today I’m going to include a quote from Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and his response to Holder.
The right to keep and bear arms is a right that Kansans hold dear. It is a right enshrined not only in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, but also protected by the Kansas Bill of Rights…The people of Kansas have repeatedly and overwhelmingly reaffirmed their commitment to protecting this fundamental right. The people of Kansas are likewise committed to defending the sovereignty of the State of Kansas as guaranteed in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the United States Constitution…”
This is important because it paints a very clear picture of how the Obama administration reacts to attempts to protect the 2nd Amendment. Obama constantly claims he doesn’t want to remove the right to bear arms, yet his administration will openly threaten and bully anyone, or any state, that tries to protect the right.
The Kansas vs. the fed battle will continue to boil and it will be interesting to see what comes of it. In the meantime, though, we can now safely assume the Obama administration is actively seeking to weaken the 2nd amendment.
