Sen. Jared Carpenter is an idiot

ItJustNeededSayin Published:

By sponsoring Senate Bill 129, which seeks to nullify Federal law, Senator Carpenter has shown that he does not have the People’s best interest at heart. The time he consumed submitting a Bill and getting it passed is a waste of our tax dollars, and all for his personal political posturing and grandstanding. He knows that any State law that contradicts Federal law will be thrown out by the court (which, would then take up more of the People’s time and tax dollars paying to defend an indefensible law). If members of the Legislature have so much free time, as to waste it on things like this, then I guess they’ve already fixed all the real problems in the State.

  • Some things, like wasting taxpayer's money, can be agreed upon by everyone.

  • A teabagger agrees with a liberal.

  • We need real leadership!

  • funny how they are willing to waste our time & dollars with this nonsense yet they're chicken on hemp farming.

  • If the state bill simply said that under KY law certain things were not illegal, that would be fine. What it says is federal law would not be enforced.

  • Sounds like secessionist talk to me.

  • Got it.................."The Senate has overwhelmingly passed a bill that would prohibit Kentucky from enforcing any federal gun control laws if they're enacted......................................... The vote was 34-3 Monday afternoon. Three of the Senate's 14 Democrats voted no, stating that the bill would be trumped by the U.S. Constitution's Supremacy Clause.........................................Berea Republican Sen. Jared Carpenter sponsored the bill. He said the Supremacy Clause applies only if Congress is acting in pursuit of its constitutionally authorized powers, which he said wouldn't apply to stricter gun measures.......................................The one-page bill deems unenforceable federal bans on gun ownership and registration. It specifically mentions semiautomatic firearms and their magazines.........................................The bill applies to federal laws as well as federal rules, regulations and orders."

  • for all those people like me who don't keep up with every single bill and its number, could you please explain what SB 129 says? thank you,

  • "They simply say that under the applicable state law, such use and possession is not illegal." So why not also for guns? Methinks you may be a bit biased. Which is fine, it is your opinion.

  • The state laws regarding marijuana use and possession do NOT provide for ignoring the federal law regarding such use and possession being criminal. They simply say that under the applicable state law, such use and possession is not illegal. The federal law can, and may be, still enforced in those states. What the Ky. gun bill says is that the federal law cannot be enforced in Kentucky. That is the problem. States do not have a right to ignore the federal constitution and laws enacted by Congress. Pretty basic, fundamental principle of constitutional law.

  • Again, I refer you to the state of Colorado which has legalized marijuana for recreational use. Still waiting for the showdown with the feds on that one.
