While visiting in your lovely city I read an opinion column by Mike McClellan (“The inmates do indeed run Ariz.’s asylum,” AFN, Feb. 15) about a bill that “prohibits public servants and federally licensed firearms dealers from enforcing any U.S. government act, law, statute, rule of regulation.” His point is that state representatives Smith, Townsend and Petersen and others who are sponsoring this bill (SB 112) are proposing a law that violates the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution. This proposal is, therefore, a violation of their oath to support the Constitution.

McClellan rightly leaves it up to the reader to decide whether these legislators are either woefully ignorant or like the Southern secessionists, traitors to our country. I suspect and hope that it is simple ignorance, and as soon as they are made aware of their mistake they will withdraw the bill.
