    I am aware of that; which is one of the things that makes me even less respectful of the members of the SCOTUS

    In Wyoming.....where the majority of the populations has more than one gun? Are big on the Second Amendment. I would say the odds are in favor.

    Just a thought, but I would say that there are more state officials in Wyoming than there are federal officials. Should Obama do something as foolish as to call in the National Guard to preside over enforcement of an EO rather than a passed law---well lets just say, it wont end well for either side in my opinion.

    Quite likely.

    True, but that would pretty much expose the Obama administration, turning guns on citizens for asserting Wyoming's rights would be a dick move that could wake up a lot of people on the fence.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Wyoming Bill Would Nullify Obama Gun Control, Jail Feds.....

    As the Obama administration plots various assaults on gun rights by “executive order” and legislation, proposals described as “very extreme” even by some Democrats, state lawmakers in Wyoming have another idea. Republican legislators are rallying behind nullification legislation that would void unconstitutional infringements on the right to keep and bear arms, even providing prison time for any federal agents who may try to enforce Washington, D.C., gun control in the state. Lawmakers expect it to pass.

    The new bill, H.B. 0104 or the “Firearms Protection Act,” would nullify any new federal infringements on the constitutionally protected gun rights of state residents — who enjoy some of the lowest crime rates while being among the most heavily armed people in America. Unconstitutional federal gun registration schemes, as well as restrictions on semi-automatic guns or standard-capacity magazines, would also be nullified under the legislation.

    There are teeth in the proposed law too: Any federal official attempting to enforce unconstitutional statutes or decrees infringing on gun rights passed after January 1 of this year would be charged with a felony. If convicted, criminal officials would be punished by up to five years in state prison and a $5,000 fine. The legislation also authorizes the state attorney general to defend citizens of Wyoming if federal authorities seek prosecutions under unconstitutional gun control rules.

    Alright Wyoming. They say the Fed tries and takes their Rights.....it will be a crime. Already they have Police Chiefs and Sherriffs are already working on Strategies to protect gun rights in their jurisdiction. They are wasting no time with this State Legislation.
    Wow, what one whole day before some states step up to oppose Obama and his executive orders.

    Funny how these states did not oppose Bush's many executive orders, many who were far far more reaching than what Obama has done.

    Of course it does pass.. you just wont admit it. Jon Steward had a great segment last night about it, and a great segment on gun control issue on Monday (or was it Tuesday).... the GOP are hypocrites and largely at fault for the lack of control the gun industry has. You have to go through more hoops to get a freaking drivers license than to get a semi-automatic machine gun... and that is one ****ing twisted world.
