Kansas Moves to Enforce Constitutional Oath for Second Amendment

Making it illegal to use tax dollars to attack Constitutional protections would seem to be non-controversial. All legislators take an oath of office to defend the Constitution.

Kansas legislators are close to approving restrictions favored by the National Rifle Association on the use of state tax dollars to promote or oppose gun-control measures or to lobby local, state or federal officials on the issue.

The Senate approved the measure Friday on a 31-6 vote. The House could consider it as early as Monday, and its approval would send the measure to Gov. Sam Brownback. The Republican governor is a strong gun-rights supporter but hasn't said publicly whether he'd sign the measure.

Pentagon Unilaterally Grants Itself Authority Over ‘Civil Disturbances’

For the average citizen watching events such as the intense pursuit of the Tsarnaev brothers on television, it would be difficult to discern between fully outfitted police SWAT teams and the military. The lines blurred even further Monday as a new dynamic was introduced to the militarization of domestic law enforcement.

By making a few subtle changes to a regulation in the U.S. Code titled “Defense Support of Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies” the military has quietly granted itself the ability to police the streets without obtaining prior local or state consent, upending a precedent that has been in place for more than two centuries.
