Comment: Where's the teeth?

(See in situ)

Where's the teeth?

I will admit this law is a step in the right direction. It is good publicity and shows that the powers that be continue to have to account for our movement. With that said, I have a critique...

As is, the law only states Alaska resources are not allowed to be used for enforcement of the unconstitutional federal laws... That leaves the door wide open for the federal government to fund and enforce these laws directly (vs indirectly through the state government). And considering enforcement will be funded by the federal reserve system either way; the law doesn't really say or do anything significant.

I have read the entire law and nowhere does it state Alaska will intervene or stop enforcement of these laws by the federal government (ok, it does state the attorney general can prosecute and defend these cases, but that is the job description of an AG anyway so nothing new there). It would add teeth to the law if enforcement of these illegal laws was defined as a crime, as well add the penalty for persons committing this crime. Some thing like this: "Any person (ex. federal employee) found guilty of enforcing or attempting to enforce these unconstitutional laws within the State of Alaska will be arrested, fined $5000, and imprisoned for no less than 5 years." That would actually make this law useful outside of publicity for the liberty movement.
