Wyoming lawmakers have proposed a new bill that, if passed, would nullify any federal restrictions on guns, threatening to jail federal agents attempting to confiscate guns, ammunition magazines or ammunition.

Hot damn! I hope Georgia legislators get such huge cojones as Wyoming! Go go go!!!!!!!!! We need to make the word “Federal - anything” the most vile of words.
Wow. Nullification. Welcome to the south, Wyoming.
Oh, Yes, Wyoming!
It appears the last school shooting in Wyoming was with a bow and arrow.
And this one many years ago...
What a fantastic people & state that is Wyoming!
I find myself in awe over their true patriot spirit, even thou I don’t expect this bill to pass. Its mere considerations is a extremely encouraging symbol of a people growing in their will to resist tyranny. Proof that our land is not yet entirely devoid of true patriots.
Let us work to see that theses brave men & women of Wyoming may grow in number and spread in sentiment & cause to other states. While the flame of liberty can never be fully extinguished by tyranny, its brightness is a symbole of hope to men & women yearning to breath free both near and far.
Let that flame glow more brightly in Wyoming, not just as demonstrated by the acts of her leglsator but most of all in the hearts & sentiments of her people. Let us never again yield before the foot of tyranny.
Warn Washington to treed lightly and never again upon me!
This is the cry of a true patriot, a man who’s loyalty & devotion is and always has been to the cause of liberty not any particular government.
This is exactly what I have been waiting for. Come on Texas and other states! Make it clear to the Fed that you will not submit to any violation of the 2A/Constitution.
I like this part as well:
“It also includes a provision allowing the Wyoming Attorney Generals office to defend any state resident against any federal firearm ban.”
This is great to hear! And exactly what states need to be doing in the face of federal overreach- each & every time. I was very impressed when David Vitter wasted no time after firearms were seized in the aftermath of Katrina.
Every cloud has a silver lining. Let’s hope people do all they can to make this one of them!
The day will come when the Federal government will become insolvent or truly tyrannical.
Hopefully, at that time there will be Warrior leaders at the State level that will lead the effort of the several States to remove from the Federal government all unconstitutional powers. i.e. reduce the Fed power by 90% :)
If that doesn't happen then we will descend into a Socialist H*ll or a civil war.
I’ve always wanted to live in Wyoming.
I hope so too. Born and grew up in GA.
And that bow shooter was full-on crazy train. Aspberger’s Syndrome. Hated his father for fathering him. Said in his suicide note that his father should not be allowed to reproduce - ever.
This is an introduction of a bill. It means nothing.
When it is signed into law and passes 10 court challenges 10 years from now, then I’ll celebrate.
We moved here about a year ago and I cannot say enough good things about this state.
Ok -- the winds blow (a lot), but you can just feel freedom in those winds!!
Amen. . .
Why? Did any LEO serve jail time for civil rights infractions?
Not that I know of (I’m not in La.), but it definitely clarified that they would be breaking federal law if they pulled it again. Was this necessary? Shouldn’t have been? WILL it stop it from happening again? Maybe not- probably not, but he *did* represent his constituents in good faith instead of pretending not to notice, making some excuse, or changing the subject- which is a helluva lot more than we can say for most of the stuffed shirts in DC. And considering all the worthless legislation they regurgitate every day (when they’re working, that is), it was *doing* something.
typo. There shouldn’t have been a -?- after “shouldn’t have been”. It should have been a period- literally & figuratively.
Agreed. It’s in the best interest of the federal agents....
I know a state legislator who’s going to introduce this bill in his state. It’ll be a lot stronger.
“threatening to jail federal agents attempting to confiscate guns, ammunition magazines or ammunition.”
They can do it too:
Section 241 of Title 18 is the civil rights conspiracy statute. Section 241 makes it unlawful for two or more persons to agree together to injure, threaten, or intimidate a person in any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the Unites States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same). Unlike most conspiracy statutes, Section 241 does not require that one of the conspirators commit an overt act prior to the conspiracy becoming a crime.
The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.
Bravo1 Everyone in red states should demand their state enact such bills! In NJ it is a waste of time, But those in blue, gun-grabbing states can move to the second Amendment states, form a new union and leave the gun-grabbing states to rot.
This is the way to fight the feds.
Nullification of unConstitutional laws. Yes. Secession to protect an institution like slavery. No.
We still need to work at the federal level to overturn laws infringing on the rights of blue state Americans to defend themselves. Their needs to be more of these cases brought before the Supreme Court.
Those Old Cowboys have the right idea. Take care of a problem before it becomes a big problem. “POWDER RIVER LETER BUCK.”
C’mon, stop being a wet blanket! You’ve got to start somewhere. Encouragement like yours won’t get us anywhere...
I disagree, it does mean something. It is better than remaining silent. All conservative States need to take a stand now with similar introductions!
Go for it Wyoming
Yes, and replace it with Feral, a most apropos title.
Read his screed. Don't blame the Aspberger's...it was the disease of liberalism.
It’s definately a message that needs to be sent.
Just that it is being introduced is something. It is a start. What would be your solution? Griping on the internet?
“Just that it is being introduced is something. It is a start. What would be your solution? Griping on the internet?”
We should celebrate when it passes. No one knows the legal path beyond that point.
I read his screed.
Whether and what I blame is of no consequence.
The perp blamed the Aspberger’s. HE killed because he thought his father should not have reproduced while knowing he (his father) knew that it was possible that his children might have it.
You can claim that it was ‘liberalism’, but that’s not what the perp thought it was.
The perp's "thoughts" didn't get there by themselves....he obviously learned a lot of America hating from somewhere.
Some have called for armed insurrection or revolt - maybe even a McVeigh kind of thing.
This from WY is much better.
A possible, though not plausible scenario:
1. The Governor arrests several Federal agents which would put the fear of God into Federal agents across the state effectively shutting down any new regs.
2. The Feds sue and it goes to the Courts which could take a long time. Eventually the Courts will rule that the state can’t do the arresting.
3. THAT’s when a strong Governor comes into play. This imaginary Gov. then says, “Then bring your Army and stop me.”
4. When the Feds raid the home of a duly-elected Governor and drag him into the streets — then we have the real crisis that we need. The public does not want to see that, I don’t think.
After that, the Feds won’t have much support and that’s when we push them out of the way and get the restrictions removed. No blood spilt.
Would never happen though.
