12 Attorneys General: 10th Amendment ‘Turned On Its Head’

Montana State House

Attorneys general in one-fourth of the states say the 10th Amendment essentially has been overturned by decades of incorrect court rulings, and the Supreme Court needs to repair the damage.

“By abandoning any meaningful standard for the substantiality of an intrastate activity’s effects on interstate commerce, this court has enabled the Congress to ‘draw the circle broadly enough to cover’ activity, that when viewed in isolation, would have no substantial effect on interstate commerce at all,” representatives for the 12 states have told the high court.

The states are Utah, Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and Wyoming.

The arguments are part of a surge of requests for the Supreme Court to take under review a dispute over the Montana Firearms Freedom Act. The law states that firearms made and kept in Montana are exempt from federal regulation under the Commerce Clause, which gives the federal government authority to regulate commerce only “among” the states.

The case was brought by the Montana Shooting Sports Association and its president, Gary Marbut, after the Montana legislature adopted the law and the federal government threatened firearms dealers and potential manufacturers.

The association earlier petitioned the high court to hear the case, arguing the federal bureaucracy has no authority to impose restrictions on a firearm made, sold and kept inside Montana.

The plaintiffs said the U.S. Supreme Court has gradually expanded Washington’s authority under the Commerce Clause so that anything can be regulated under it.

For example, various courts have ruled that under the Commerce Clause, a local law “tracking sex offenders” cannot be allowed because “any effect on interstate commerce from requiring sex offenders to registered is too attenuated to survive scrutiny under the Commerce Clause.”

Further, another court ruled that a disputed statute need not “be a purely economic or commercial statute” to fall under the economic jurisdiction of the Commerce Clause.

  1. The courts are corrupt . Jefferson said it. I said it (and you removed
    my comment) and the Attorneys General of 12 States have said it.
    What more do you want? This nation cannot be restored without an honest
    judiciary. All judges should be elected by the people, subject to recall,
    and there should be no judicial immunity of any kind. Judges convicted
    of any crime should be incarcerated in the general prison population.
    Judges convicted of “legislating from the bench” should be tried for sedition.
    In time of declared war or overt hostilities anyone who disarms a citizen
    in violation of the Second Amendment or the Militia Clause gives
    aid and comfort to the enemy and should be tried for treason.

  2. God says in Psalm 82 that HE will judge righteously all judges at all levels who do not do righteous judgments in every instance. God wants the poor and helpless not to be abused by corrupt judges. They all have sworn in their oath to protect the innocent and render righteous judgments for all. God will judge every one in position to render honest and righteous decisions and are held accountable whether they know it or not. The judicial system in the USA has been corrupted as well as law enforcement but they also will be judged righteously and will suffer accordingly to their sins. The corruption in our nation is almost totally complete with very few exceptions. Judgment has to follow and righteousness will then prevail as the guilty will receive their just punishment.

  3. The only thing that matters about a judge or those within the judicial system being corrupt, like any other who works within one of our governments, is why did YOU not remove them for breaking the contract, not keeping the oath – a felony, etc.

    The only problem is: LAWFUL ENFORCEMENT

    ENFORCEMENT OF THE US CONSTITUTION (and all that is in PURSUANCE THEREOF IT), AND EACH STATE’S CONSTITUTION – AS THE SUPREME LAW OF THIS LAND AND AS THE HIGHEST LAW OF EACH STATE EXCEPT WHEN the US Constitution and all that is in PURSUANCE THEREOF IT kicks in is enforcement of those
    laws and it matters not what position a person is in; janitorial or judge, president or governor.
