YES! (jumps up with fist in the air!) It's a great day in America, isn't it? I love the sound of "unconstitutional!", don't you? The most powerful words in America! There is hope for us yet.

The legal encyclopedia American Jurisprudence says the following in regard to constitutionality:

The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and the name of law, is in reality no law but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it; an unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed ... An unconstitutional law is void. (16 Am. Jur. 2d, Sec. 178)

It was never a law in the first place. WOOHOO!
