Musings of The GeekWithA.45

Musings of The GeekWithA.45 posted an article yesterday (June 10, 2010) discussing the effect of the Commerce Clause on the 1934 National Firearms Act.

Essentially, the Commerce Clause was not the excuse used for restricting access to firearms.

The justification was .... Taxation!

We probably kinda knew that, but we got all confused. (Okay, so I got all confused.)

If you want to understand how we all got to this sorry state of affairs, where the Federal Government justified its unconstitutional intrusion on the 2nd Amendment, go read the article.

When you're done, I'll have another sorry story to tell you.
