Skip to comments.Wyoming Introduces Bill To Nullify Any Federal Gun Control Measures, Jail Federal Agents
Posted on 01/13/2013 8:31:16 AM PST by yoe
This week, Wyoming lawmakers introduced a bill banning the federal government from enforcing an assault weapons ban or a prohibition on high-capacity magazines in the state, calling the effort an attempt to take the Second Amendment seriously.
The bill, which is sponsored by eight Wyoming state representatives and two state senators, calls for federal agents who attempt to enforce those measures to be imprisoned for at least one year and up to five years, and fined a maximum of $5,000.
It also contains broad language prohibiting any public servant
or dealer selling any firearm in this state from enforcing any act, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States government relating to a personal firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in Wyoming and that remains exclusively within the borders of Wyoming.
