Under the U.S. Constitution, there are only three federal laws that apply to people who live in the States.
State people are not subject to, or protected by, the Federal Constitution. Unless they voluntarily submit themselves. This will be in future lessons.
For today’s lesson:
According to Vice President Thomas Jefferson in his 1798 Kentucky Resolution, state inhabitants are not subject to federal laws, except for the three crimes mentioned in the Constitution: piracy, treason, and counterfeiting, “and no other crimes whatever”.
He went on to say “(and all other their acts which assume to create, define, or punish crimes other than those enumerated in the Constitution) are altogether void and of no force, and that the power to create, define, and punish such other crimes is reserved, and of right appertains solely and exclusively to the respective States, each within its own Territory.”

If you are subject to federal laws, you might want to find out why. What did you sign that ensnared yourself to legalities that you didn’t understand?
Future lesson will explain:
State inhabitants are not protected by federal laws, not even amendments.
When you voluntarily submit yourself, you cannot complain about the consequences.
