The United States government continues to run as an anti-freedom, unconstitutional force of power over the people of this country. Now it's most questionable organization, the Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) Agency, is telling Minnesotans that its illegal to buy or possess a firearm if you smoke or consume legal marijuana products in Minnesota.
Yesterday, Minnesota became the newest state to legalize recreational marijuana.
In a press release from the Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Minnesota ATF Field Office, Agent Jeff Reed provides "clarification" on what federal officials plan to do to gun owners who are following state laws instead of unconstitutional federal laws.
The federal Gun Control Act of 1968 prohibits any person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance as defined by the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 from shipping, transporting, receiving, or possessing firearms or ammunition.
Regardless of the recent changes in Minnesota law related to the legalization of marijuana, an individual who is a current user of marijuana is still federally defined as an “unlawful user” of a controlled substance and therefore is prohibited from shipping, transporting, receiving, or possessing firearms or ammunition.
These people are completely nuts!!!
Can you imagine a federal agent arresting a person who owns a firearm just because at one point they light up a joint or use medicinal marijuana? The federal government has no legal authority to regulate marijuana OR infringe on the rights of people to keep and bear arms. But they have a federal agency tasked to do just that.
Here's the press release:
When the federal government violates the United States Constitution, it's the duty of the states to make those laws null and void in the states.
