Here is the full transcript of Prof Kopel's testimony. It is quite long, but has some very interesting points made in the real world.

It's not comprehensive, but this interactive map is a good start at demonstrating self-defense use of firearms.

If you know incidents that should be added, CATO wants you to report them.

One of the first things we MUST do is stop using the progressives improper terms and language. This is not 'gun control' it is 'civil rights violations' or 'anti-gun laws'. The ban is not on 'assault rifles' but a 'ban on semi-automatics and their magazines'!

Received this letter from Gov Scott Walker on the states vs federal law supremacy, and I wonder about the "Supremacy Clause" in his reply.





Dear Concerned Citizen:



Thank you for contacting me regarding enactment of a state law banning the enforcement of any federal law related to limits on semi-automatic weapons and high capacity magazines. I appreciate your thoughts on this important issue.



As Governor, I signed into law a conceal and carry law making Wisconsin the 49th state in the nation to allow for concealed carry. I also signed into law protections for homeowners who are responsibly protecting their families from assault. As Governor, I take public safety and the protection of Second Amendment rights seriously.



Under the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, state laws do not take precedence over federal laws. Therefore, states enacting laws to prohibit the enforcement of a federal law or calling for the arrest of individuals attempting to enforce federal law are passing laws likely to be struck down in court.



There are federal laws I do not agree with just as I imagine there are state laws with which federally elected officials do not agree. However, as an elected official in the United States of America, I am confined to the Constitution of the state and nation as to what powers and limitations my office holds.



Again, thank you for contacting me.



Sincerely,

Governor Scott Walker

Please remember this thread is for posting resources, not for debate.
