CASE ENTRY

United States v. Cox

Federal law places a bunch of restrictions on the sale and manufacture of misleadingly named firearm “silencers.” Kansas law says that none of those restrictions apply in Kansas. Tenth Circuit: Nice try, Kansas. Reliance on Kansas law might mitigate someone’s sentence—as it did here—but it can’t change the fact of their guilt. (Also, the National Firearms Act is constitutional).
