Governor Lies About The Constitution!!

second amendment SC Governor Lies About the Constitution!!

Here’s a surprise for you; some Governors have absolutely zero understanding of the Constitution.  None, whatsoever.  Montana Governor Steve Bullock seems to fit that description quite nicely.

Yesterday, he vetoed Montana House Bill 302 (HB302).  The bill would require the state to refuse to enforce or assist the enforcement of any federal bans on semiautomatic weapons or large capacity magazines.  The bill states, in part:

A peace officer, state employee, or employee of any political subdivision is prohibited from enforcing, assisting in the enforcement of, or otherwise cooperating in the enforcement of a federal ban on semiautomatic weapons or large magazines and is also prohibited from participating in any federal enforcement action implementing a federal ban on semiautomatic weapons or large magazines.

Here’s why Bullock is clueless about the Constitution.  In his veto message he wrote that the bill would put “law enforcement in the position of violating laws they have sworn to uphold” and “subject our peace officers to criminal sanctions for upholding the oath we ask that they take.”

Here’s a message for you, Steve.  You’re a liar, and we know it.

    What can I say? OMG! How stupid is this man? For any of you who may be confused, a federal law banning certain arms is unconstitutional since the 2nd amendment says, "…shall not be infringed." The Heller case upholds this. Banning is an infringement, folks!

      Right on, SammysDad, and more to the point, they do not tak an oath to uphold Federal Laws, they take an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States and of their State.


    I seriously doubt if our politicians really read any of the bills they sign. I imagine most have an aide who tells them what THEY think should be signed or vetoed. After all, they are too busy campaigning year round.
