How do you feel about eight states passing laws voiding federal firearm regulations in their state?
Here's the story I found online. Could this be the beginning of a trend?

I have to know more. For me gun control - regulations and restrictions, is much more complex than most realize. It is not only a 2nd Amendment issue, but is inclusive of the 10th and 14th too. Then there are the terms 'militia', 'regulated', and 'free state' to consider. Each state defines militia - organized, unorganized, and etc, differently while the Federal gov't has its definition too. Reading that article I think of the 10th, yet as shared I would have to see more.
I make sense of most things these days by believing that I am living in an incarnation of the Lord of the Flies. I think this trend actually started awhile ago. Right around the time that we elected a socialist, Muslim, black man to be president and a few million tiny brains fried their last neuron.
At any rate, these laws are mostly symbolic. It seems unlikely that anyone will even try to enforce them, but if they do, federal law trumps sate law. That has been consistently upheld for a very long time and I don't see it changing.
Do you feel this is defiance against the federal government on a level like what happened before the civil war?
Nullification pre-Civil War, in part, a tool to defend a predominant economic system. There is no such money interest in this case. Without which, I don't see it rising anywhere near that level.
I think it's a good thing. After all, the vision that the founders of our country had was that most of power should reside with the states and people, augmented by a small, restricted federal government.
I think that means we only have 42 more states to go for the states to regain their place in the US.

What do you all think about this one? Seems like some good fodder for my fellow hubbers.
