Excerpted from The Washington Examiner: So much for President Obama’s plan to win support for his gun control measures from the nation’s top law enforcement officials.
Joining two police organizations that slammed state and federal anti-gun efforts, the West Virginia attorney general is warning that he will fight any new law–just like several states tried to do when Washington passed Obamacare.
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said that he will fight a federal ban on assault weapons like the one being pushed by California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
“If a federal law is enacted that is similar to Senator Feinstein’s legislation, the West Virginia Attorney General’s office would actively participate in legal efforts to ensure that such law does not infringe upon the rights of West Virginians,” Morrisey said in a statement. He added: “These efforts may include a wide range of legal and educational actions.”
The Charleston Gazette said the new attorney general has created an Office of Federalism to challenge Washington’s laws like the proposed gun ban.
