#1 Texas et al could put the Feds in a real bind by revising their own state militia laws, starting with the Swiss model as an example, by enrolling and authoring that they arm themselves with the standard side arms of their National Guard [which are subject to federalization, but the state militia is not and constitutes a backup if the former is mobilized and deployed].

#2 Yes, and put them on trial in any of the hundreds of local JP courts throughout the state. JP's are locally elected "Judge Roy Bean" justices.
#4 ..yes, but nothing stops them from expanding their [as the term is used in the federal statutes] unorganized militia, or to use a term from the beginning of the republic, the unembodied militia.

#6 And if TX really wants action they'll jail a few federal judges for enforcing unpalatable federal dictats.

#7 Tennessee has a State Guard and does have ta lot of the same weapons as the National Guard. Members are required to provide most of their own arms, however. Assault weapon ban? Not in Tennessee.

#9 Alabama has NO law against "Open Carry", I found this out today listening to a radio program Featuring the Police Chief of Montgomery County.
I LOVE Alabama.

#10 RJ, A number of places don't have a law against 'open carry' - but they still arrest you if you do, and call it 'brandishment' or some kind of BS 'scaring people' charge.
