    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.

    Perfect remedy for this issue. If the Feds want to infringe on the States, the States should definitely fight back, in one way or another.

    It's about time for a revolt. The federal government no longer fears the People nor does it respect the States. It must be taught its lesson again.

    I agree.....there are 30 Republican Controlled States. If all of them were to do this. That would put a dent in Obama and the Democrats Crawl. I like that part about they are Sovereign Government too.

    One thing is for certain. The NRA has been making moves this whole time. Hopefully some of those Pols in D.C are taking Notice too.

    I don't trust the Republicans either. Both sides will have to go to the gallows.

    Mad respect, Wyoming. I'm totally digging this new trend of so many states telling the Feds to go **** themselves like Colorado and Washington.

    I like the idea of removing the high standard of having to prove that a person knowingly sold to a felon--making gun trafficking a federal crime, any crossing of state lines with weapons for sale. Any sale to someone not allowed to own a firearm without a background check would leave the seller liable, under new federal law.

    BTW - this Wyoming thing will never be signed by their Governor. It's just a lot of fringe political theater.

    Ask California 'medical' marijuana distributors how that works out.

    didn't realize the population of wyoming was this dense

    if something is actually found to be unConstitutional, then it cannot be enforced. no new legislation at the state level modifies that reality

    the reich wing politicians are only stating the obvious in that regard

    now, if the state officials want to impose their own interpertation regarding what should be found unConstitutional and then try before the state court a federal employee performing his fiduciary responsibilities, expect a show down. not unlike Eisenhower sending in the National Guard to enforce the federal non-discrimination laws in arkansas

    for the younger crowd, the state officials lost

    Scaring Away Elephants

    In the middle of the night a gentleman stood on the top of his house singing to the top of his lungs and tearing up a newspaper into tiny pieces and throwing them about.
    When the police arrived, they asked him why he was doing all that, he replied," I am keeping the tigers away."
    The officer pointed out that there were no tigers in the area.
    "I know. I am doing a great job keeping us safe," replied the gentleman.
    I may be wrong.
