In which Chris Koster Teaches Tim Jones about the Constitution (as told in gifs)

Speaker Tim Jones (and attorney) took to teh twitterz earlier this summer to show off his expert legal analysis of House Bill 436 when he declared that nullification is perfectly legal, even though the Supreme Court says it isn't. 

Unfortunately for Speaker Jones, there are some lawyers that seem to disagree with his conclusion. For example, Attorney General Chris Koster.
