Federal Minimum Wage and the Constitution

The feds have no delegated power to impose wage controls under the original, legal meaning of the Constitution. Federal supremacists will quickly point to the commerce clause. But that constitutional argument for a federal minimum wage is as ignorant as the economic arguments.

A bill introduced in the Iowa House would take on federal gun control; past, present and future. Passage into law would represent a major step toward ending federal acts that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms within the state. A coalition of five Republicans introduced House Bill 518 (HF518) on Feb. 15. The legislation would ban any person, including any public officer or employee of the state and its political subdivisions, from enforcing any past, present or future federal “acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, regulations, statutes or ordinances” that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms. HF518 is similar to a bill moving forward in Missouri. DETAILS OF THE LEGISLATION The bill includes a detailed definition of actions that qualify as “infringement,” including but not limited to: taxes and fees on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services that would have a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens; registration and tracking schemes applied to firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition, or their owners, that would have a chilling effect; any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens; any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens. The proposed law defines a “law-abiding citizen” as “a person who is not otherwise precluded under state law from possessing a firearm.” Under the proposed law, infringement on the right to keep and bear arms would include the National Firearms Act of 1934, the Gun Control Act of 1968. Pres. Trump’s bump-stock ban, proposed federal “red-flag laws,” and any future gun control schemes implemented by the federal government. #2ndAmendment #constitution #libertarian #10thAmendment #nullify https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/02/iowa-bill-would-take-on-federal-gun-control-past-present-and-future/
