(Omaha World Herald)   If you're selling illegal drugs in Nebraska, you better have state-issued drug tax stamps. It doesn't make the drug sales legal, but you can be charged for not having one   (omaha.com ) divider line

I went downtown and picked one up today. The only problem is that I don't have any drugs to affix it to.

Resident Muslim: untaken_name: Resident Muslim: "Tramp Stamp"

Tramp stamp? Sounds like peonage laws. Those are un-Constitutional.

twat_waffle: DORMAMU: twat_waffle: NFA: Weren't drug tax stamps ruled unconstitutional?

Leary v. United States. The Marijuana Tax Act was ruled unconstitutional because the act of applying for the stamp would require admitting that you were violating state law, thus infringing on the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. By that logic, these state drug tax stamp laws should be struck down as unconstitutional.

Or I could have read the thread...

I repeat... If you can get the stamp with out breaking the law or as the waffle said without incriminating yourself they coukd do it.

The at has a tax stamp for modified shotguns for instance (short barrels) used mostly for collectors.

The states that have tax stamp laws on the books that have self-incrimination protections. That hasn't stopped them from being ruled unconstitutional (at the state level) in at least two states. If the ATF's sawed-off shotgun tax stamp was ever challenged in court, I would expect it to be struck down as well, with Leary v. United States being cited as precedent.


Gettong the ATF tax stamp makes the firearm legal.

Not sure how the short barrel shotgun tax stamp is comparable, short barrel shotguns are legal if you've paid the tax.

The poster I was responding to suggested that they were illegal, even if you paid the tax. I don't know a whole lot about firearms and the laws regarding them, as I do not own a firearm and I have no desire to own one. If they are legal (provided you get the ATF stamp), then the analogy is irrelevant, no?


Yes the analogy doesn't work. You have to fill out all the paperwork and get the stamp, then you can modify the shotgun. The shotgun is legal, at least on the federal level. State laws may vary, but I don't believe you can actually finish the paperwork in states where it is illegal.
