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.

These types of laws need to be expanded...

to cover all infringements by the Federal Government on any of our Constitutional rights! Nice start though.

This is the American spirit

the rest of us in the world have admired. You guys stand up for what is right. Gun owners are decent people who keep their guns in reserve to defend family and nation.

This Exec Order UN GUN BAN makes your unconstitutional government look so bad, especially with all the wars US is involved in and providing arms and money to terrorists in Syria, Libya and Fast and Furious drug cartels in Mexico. How hypocritical can it get?

It is so obvious that Obama is a corporate puppet of the billionaires club elite.

I read this on the no retreat thread to safety

They know their time is short because they have no place to retreat. That is the dirty little secret they do not want us to know. Do not forget that. thx realman2020
