Unfortunately, Or fortunately, depending on your viewpoint, no state has the constitutional authority to nullify federal law.

Article 6, Clause 2 of the constitution, the "Supremacy Clause" firmly establishes that.

It's still a damn good political statement though!

Nullification is the legal theory that states have the right to nullify, or invalidate, federal laws which they view as being unconstitutional & the Constitution says our RIGHT to keep & bear arm shall not be infringed.

And it has no basis in law. Only the Supreme Court of the U.S. can invalidate a federal law on constitutional grounds.

Read the Supremacy Clause. It's pretty clear. It would be nice for the states to have to have that power, but the Supremacy Clause has been upheld by the Court innumerable times.

Massachusetts tried it during the VN war. Passed a law sating the draft was unconstitutional, and no Mass. citizen could be drafted. Took less than a week to invalidate.

But there could be if they wanted. In fact, every male has to be registered with selective service, in case they decide to institute a draft.

That;s correct. The draft can be re-instituted at any time.

About 150 years ago,eleven states tried to "nullify" federal law.

How did that work pout for them?

The point being that we need to elect federal reps that will do what we want. We need to stop voting for (or against) candidates based on what the union tells us, or the vneighbor, or old aunt Sally.

We need to study what the candidates stand for then support them. but we also need to recognize how government works (any government) and realize that we aren't going to get A"goody two shoes" no matter who we elect. Idealism is a great and lofty goal, but it just doesn't work out in practice.

Hell, study our own history, and you'll find that Jefferson, Madison, Adams etc, weren't really that much different from the politicians today.

The American voter has always been a sucker for political "Hat" tricks. The politicians continue to trick the uniformed voters.
