Wyoming to Preserve the Second Amendment
What’s this? A state putting forth legislation pushing back against federal tyranny with penalties? Wow. I guess they haven’t consulted with the RINOs in the SC legislature who say that can’t be done. Or as one South Carolina County GOP Chair said recently on radio “That’s futile. (but bless their hearts)”
In response to current threats from the Federal Government on banning firearms, firearms accessories and ammunition, States are beginning to take action to hold the Federal Government to its constitutional limits under the 2nd Amendment. вЂњA well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.вЂќ
Wyoming Rep. Kendell Kroeker has sponsored and introduced HB0104. the Firearms Protection Act. Representatives Baker, Burkhart, Jaggi, Miller, Piiparinen, Reeder and Winters and Senators Dockstader and Hicks have co-sponsered this bill.
WyomingвЂ™s Firearms Protection Act, is вЂњan act relating to firearms; providing that any federal law which attempts to ban a semi-automatic firearm or to limit the size of a magazine of a firearm or other limitation on in this state shall be unenforceable in Wyoming; providing a penalty; and providing for an effective date.вЂќ This act nullifies all federal laws made after Jan. 1, 2013.
The bill backs things up with some teeth by providing for criminal charges for federal agents who attempt to violate the proposed state law:
вЂњAny official, agent or employee of the United States government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in Wyoming and that remains exclusively within the borders of Wyoming shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, shall be subject to imprisonment for not less than one (1) year and one (1) day or more than five (5) years, a fine of not more than five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), or both.вЂќ
