The State of Kansas has responded to the Attorney General Eric Holder’s threats to take Federal Action within the State of Kansas, after the Feds threatened the State for passing the 2nd Amendment Protection Act, a bill that banned federal authorities from violating State resident’s second amendment rights.
Attorney General Eric Holder sent a letter to the State of Kansas threatening Federal Action. On 2 May, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, sent his response to Washington. It is below.
It reads, in part:
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.
Here is the Full Response:
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, had strong words for the entire Obama administration and wrote in a separate letter,
He (Eric holder) was evidently not concerned the ATF officials be allowed to enforce federal law when his agency oversaw the “Fast and Furious” operation to walk guns into the hands of Mexican cartels. And he is not concerned the Obama administration in ordering ICE officials to violate federal law through the executive amnesty for illegal aliens that DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano launched in June 2012.
He goes on to say that, the Obama administration has repeatedly violated the United States Constitution for the past four-and-a-half-years. That abuse cannot continue. The State of Kansas is determined to restore the Constitution and to protect the right of its citizens to keep and bear arms.
