After being shot down earlier this week, the Arizona State Senate revived and successfully passed a bill that would create a mechanism for the state to nullify federal laws.
I thought these people were the "strict Constitutionalists?" Gotta wonder what part of Article VI these clowns do not understand.
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
They are certainly free to challenge the Constitutionality of any Federal law, but nullification is illegal, and any elected official that engages in it is in violation of the oath of office.
