He said that it only existed at the will of the states, therefore if a state found that a federal law was unconstitutional the state would have the right to nullify the law within its borders Jackson opposed his theory because it was a states- right challenge, so he asked congress to enact legislation so he could use troops to enforce federal laws in the face of nullification. i'm not sure on webster, but i hope this answer clears things up for you a little bit! Please Don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions!
