In response to Representative Joe Carr’s decision to introduce legislation criminalizing any attempts by Federal agents to enforce Federal bans on semiautomatic weapons or ammunition, Rod Williams offered a polite yet pointed criticism. “I understand Joe Carr's fear that . . . the Second Amendment may be trampled upon, but I think his approach for dealing with this fear is the wrong [one].” Williams wrote. “I do not think we can ignore the ‘Supremacy Clause’ . . . and if I were in the State Legislature, I would not support Joe Carr’s legislation.”
