Nullifying the NFA at the state level?

So if California can choose not to enforce a federal law.... If California can choose to make it illegal for a LEO to cooperate with the feds..... Can a state declare the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the gun control act of 1969 gun control act illegal? What about the 1986 firearms owner protection act? Can a state make all full auto legal and the federal tax stamp null and void?

    Yes. The concept of State Nullification has not been wholly forgotten, but a good many people are not aware of the concept.

    Now, getting a state to act that way might be a bit difficult in this case, what with a good many of the LEOs in any given state supporting gun control. Just look at all the gun controllers on this very forum!

    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    Possibly but not probably.

    If appointed to the SCOTUS, my position will be that the federal government established precedent when it failed to send Federal troops into California to arrest everyone who took part in the "legalized pot" industry. If you choose to give away federal primacy in one case, you lose it for all cases.

    I believe that any state can choose to ignore NFA & GCA68, if it wants to. Heck, a state can even secede from the Union without consequence. Yes, you will lose federal funds, but you won't have to pay federal income tax.

    And, your children can drive a car within the state at any age, as long as they can reach the pedals, if that is your wish.

    Presently, driving age is a state determined minimum.
