I recently appeared on It’s Too Late with Alan Mosley to discuss the recent Supreme Court decisions.

Government schools never teach this stuff. But the American Revolution – and the War for Independence – were about much more than “taxation without representation.” The Revolution was about unlimited, arbitrary power – complete and total supremacy over the colonies. And the battles started over a British gun control program.

Today, a law extending and expanding a sales tax exemption on the sale of gold and silver bullion and coins goes into effect. The exemption relieves some of the tax burdens on investors, and it also eliminates one barrier to using gold and silver in everyday transactions, a foundational step for people to undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.

The law prohibits any official, officer, employee, or agent of the state or a  political subdivision of the state from enforcing or administering any executive order issued by the president that “limits or restricts the ownership, use, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or firearm accessories by law-abiding residents of the state.” The bill also bans the expenditure of state or local funds for the enforcement of the same.

A new law legalizing permitless carry of a firearm in the state went into effect as of July 1, despite fierce law enforcement opposition. The enactment of this so-called “constitutional carry”  bill will also foster an environment more hostile to federal gun control in the state.

The new law makes several changes to the state’s sales and income tax code. It includes a sales tax exemption on the sale of “goldback” notes.
