Wyoming Lawmakers Propose Legislation to Protect Gun Owners From Federal Firearms Ban

Wyoming lawmakers are proposing legislation to protect gun owners from a federal firearm ban.
K2Radio reported:

Several Wyoming lawmakers are proposing legislation designed to protect gun-owners from any potential federal firearm ban. The “Firearms Protection Act” bill, introduced this week, would make any federal law banning semi-automatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries.

Anyone trying to enforce a federal gun ban could face felony charges under the proposal. It also includes a provision allowing the Wyoming Attorney General’s office to defend any state resident against any federal firearm ban.

The proposed bill would make it a felony for federal agents to enforce a firearms ban within the state borders.

    Wyoming should consider themselves a ‘sanctuary state’ for gun owners, as some mayors called their cities in opposition to federal immigration laws. Other sane and Constitution loving governors should follow suit.

    School Tragedy Averted As Teacher Draws Her Gun on Crazed Gunman

    Gudger, the school resource officer (I called her a “teacher” in the headline just because I do not know what a “resource officer” is and I figure that most people don’t either) held the gunman in a standoff for two minutes, until police arrived. After they did, the cops again demanded Cowen drop his gun. He didn’t. Shooting broke out (I don’t know who shot first, thus the passive voice) and Cowen was killed.

    #19 Take a second look at Article VI.

    This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

    One might argue that a federal law passed that does not comply with the Constitution or with a state law that IS in compliance with the Constitution is null and void. In other words, if the state law is supported by the Constitution (in this case the Second Amendment), federal gun-grabbing laws can be considered null and void. I think that might be the approach Wyoming is taking, and I am sure they have had lawyers look at the proposed law before introducing it.

    And the madman was stopped by a good gal with a gun. No staff or students were injured. Imagine that Liberals, just like Wayne LaPierre said “The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.” Hey, Leslie this is today’s headline. Another gun story were lives were saved. How come you have no comment today?

    All of my firearms have been sold already, to the next generation.

    I’m just minding the store. I’ll obey the law when my politicians do.

    Till then, come and take it.

    To clarify: My above comment is in regard to the attempted school shooting by another wacko at the Sullivan Central High School in Tennesee on Monday that was stopped by an armed employee.

    The NRA has been vindicated by none other than the parents of the school shooting victims.

    Newtown parents demand police presence at schools.
    “Parent Amy Roman implored both the Police Commission and the Board of Education Tuesday night to continue to provide two police officers at each of the district’s six schools.
    Roman, who has two young sons, said she moved with her family to Newtown three years ago because of the schools. In the wake of the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary shooting that left 20 children and six faculty members dead, Roman said she and other parents want to ensure their children are safe in whatever school they are assigned.
    “We feel this has gone from a want to a need,” Roman told both the commission and the board.
    She was not alone. A couple of other parents expressed similar sentiments, and the district has received close to 300 emails, many of them voicing concern about long-term security and police presence in the schools.
    Schools Superintendent Janet Robinson said this presence is “indefinite,” with Newtown’s department supplemented by officers from other departments.”I’ve told the police we need them,” Robinson said, noting that children have not ventured outside for recess “because of anxiety.”

    If Wyoming did that, other States would follow suit.

    The Constitution doesn’t say the right of the people to keep and smoke dope shall not be infringed.

  • More Minty

    Even if this bill passes, it would do absolutely nothing. See Martin v. Hunter’s Lessee

    This is nothing more than the frantic flailing of right wingers who know nothing about actual Constitutional law.

    You are pathetic.


    Right now it’s not a gun grab especially worrying me, it’s the forerunner of a gun grab which is registration of ALL arms and the yearly accounting of said weapons. Another concern; how about the outlawing of all semiautomatics, both short and long weapons. Watch for each of these two bummers, gun registration and the outlawing of semiautomatic weapons, on the Obama/Biden list for immediate executive action.

    Re #22 linked story — just discovered it’s a 2yr. old event…however, that doesn’t change the fact that an armed, well-trained employee was able to contain the gunman til the cops arrived.

    Cruising the internet…found this, posted today —

    What you are about to read is astonishing. I’m not even sure what’s the right conclusion to draw from it. But here’s what we know so far:

    John Noveske is one of the most celebrated battle rifle manufacturers in America. His rifles, found at http://www.NoveskeRifleworks.com are widely recognized as some of the finest pieces of American-made hardware ever created. (I own one of his rifles, and it’s a masterpiece of a machine that just keeps on running.) Sadly, John Noveske was killed in a mysterious car crash just a few days ago, on January 4, 2013.

    According to the Outdoor Wire, his car “traveled across the oncoming lane onto the dirt highway shoulder until it struck two large boulders. The vehicle rolled and Mr. Noveske was ejected.”

    But barely a week before this incident, John Noveske posted a lengthy, detailed post on Facebook that listed all the school shootings tied to psychiatric drugs. At the end of the post, he asked, “What drugs was Adam Peter Lanza on?”

    Not all, there would be enough Prog-run states that would gleefully comply with unconstitutional acts from this administration. In my home state of Washington there are quite a few politicians-for-life (Dems all) who are trying to make it a race as to who starts confiscating legally owned firearms first, the state or the Feds.

    The Second Amendment assault has been planned for over two decades and Eric Holder, who orchestrated Fast and Furious, is one of the architects.
    Here’s Holder in 1995 speaking of “brainwashing people” to shun guns and gunowners the same way people who smoked were shamed into “cowering outside to smoke in private.”

    (Tried to link clip but blocked. Check youtube)

    “We need to brainwash [people into thinking about guns in vastly different way.”

    “You know, when I was growing up, people smoked all the time. Both my parents did. But over time, we changed the way that people thought about smoking, so now we have people who cower outside of buildings and kind of smoke in private and don’t want to admit it.”

    No Mr. Minty, you’re pathetic. This is a state that has the lowest taxes in the country and we finnish in the black, fiscally, every year. We have finnished a billion in the black in recent years. So much extra money that we ended sales tax on food. We have a 5.7 % unemployment, low crime, and nobody shooting up schools and theaters or malls…That only happens in sh*t hole blue states, with strict gun laws. People here are hard working, INDEPENDENT and FREE!!

    Keep your supposedly progessive B.S. to your stink blue states and stay the he** away from us!
