Sorry, I won't "fight" for a bill that would put good people in prison.

This thread has probably exceeded its lifetime, but I just have to respond to this...

Over the past few weeks, we've been inundated by negative media, numerous discussions about "what-ifs", and draconian legislation that will supposedly be brought up in Washington (Feinstien I'm looking at you)... I don't know about others personally, but all of that has really been dragging me down...

I see so many spouting the "we have to do something"... but reading this, the "we have to do the right thing"... it really helps erase much of that negativity that has been latching on recently. I'm sure others feel the same, but I truly appreciate that people like you are out there working for all of us.

I don't' see the distinction? In the marijuana debate.... it is illegal at the Federal level (and the DEA been very public about it), so the states did just that, legalized it at the state level... the difference being it seems Obama does not seem to be interested in enforcing it from the federal level:
We've got bigger fish to fry

It would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after recreational users in states that have determined that it's legal

Re: Texas Firearms Freedom Act

Perhaps I'm misinformed, but I thought this came up before:

http://www.legis.state.tx.us/BillLookup ... Bill=HB145

Some type of narrow reading of the 10th amendment or some such?
