Maine Passes Law To Follow The US Constitution

I really find this not only odd, but down right unnecessary and shows us, "We the People" exactly how far gone our government is at ALL levels and has absolutely no idea of what they are doing and has also no comprehension of what the US Constitution and their own state constitutions say or mean!

Don't get me wrong as I think it's a GREAT thing that Maine has finally decided to follow the US Constitution and agree that our 2nd Amendment right to bearing arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED upon! But the very fact that a BILL had to be brought forth, voted on and then passed into law to accomplish this is just mind boggling to me! IMHO...the LAW that restricted it in the 1st place which was UNCONSTITUTIONAL to begin with, should have been removed...PERIOD! Why bring forth yet ANOTHER bill to force our state government to do what they should have been doing ALL ALONG, which is to FOLLOW THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND....the US Constitution? 

WHY do our legislators not get that they do NOT have to write and pass bills giving us, We the People, the right to have the right to bear arms (without infringement) that is ALREADY given us, BY US, through the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution and then additionally strengthened and given to us in our STATE constitution, Article I (Declaration of Rights), Section 16: To keep and bear arms. Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned? I'm glad that our legislators WANT to follow our constitutions and thus providing We the People with what is unalienably our right to possess, but it seems that they need to be educated more that these rights do NOT need to be readdressed legislatively by passing bills and making new law. That instead, it needs to be addressed through REMOVING the unconstitutional law that INFRINGED upon our unalienable right in the first place! Because make no mistake in knowing this, NO LAW PASSED THAT IS CONTRARY TO THE US CONSTITUTION IS LEGAL ANYWAYS*! No law that is in opposition to what is stated in our US Constitution can hold ANY lawfulness...PERIOD! If anyone wants to AMEND ANY constitutional amendment, it CANNOT be done through passing laws in our individual state governments nor through the US Congress. It needs to be PROPOSED either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures with finally being approved by ratification by three-fourths of the States (38 of 50 States)!

So, this NEW law that was passed by the Maine State legislature was just a colossal waste of time and taxpayer money because this law which essentially corrects/amend an unconstitutional law, really achieves nothing because We the People don't have to obey an unconstitutional law to begin with*. What needs to be done is to actually follow the US Constitution and NOT PASS STUPID UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS IN THE FIRST PLACE!


-*The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land, and any statue, to be valid, must be in agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows:
The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it.
An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.
Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principals follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it . . .
A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one.
An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law.
Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, it is superseded thereby.
No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.

  1. Politicians just want to give the illusion that they are actually doing something.
