Sound Off: Brownback vs Holder on the New Kansas Gun Law. Tell us what you think
Holder said the U.S. Constitution prohibits the state from pre-empting federal laws. He said the federal government is willing to go to court.
Brownback has now written Holder, “ The people of Kansas are committed to defending the sovereignty of the State of Kansas as guaranteed in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.
The state’s Second Amendment Protection Act, which expressly restates our commitment to these rights, was approved by wide, bi-partisan margins in the Kansas Legislature. The measure was adopted by a vote of 35 to 4 in the Kansas Senate with the Democrat Senate Minority Leader supporting the bill. The measure was adopted by a vote of 96 to 24in the Kansas House of Representatives. Again, the Democrat House Minority Leader voted for the bill. This is not a partisan issue in Kansas. The people of Kansas have clearly expressed their sovereign will. It is my hope that upon further review, you will see their right to do so.”
