Wyoming Lawmakers Look to Ban Federal Gun Bans

Dismayed by the Obama administration’s push to reform the nation’s gun laws, state lawmakers in Wyoming are proposing legislation designed to protect gun owners from gun bans, like the one Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) introduced into the Senate last week.

Called the “Firearms Protection Act,” the bill is essentially a ban on federal gun bans.

Though, not only would it render any new federal restriction on firearms passed after Jan. 1, 2013, null and void, it would also make it a crime for any government agent who attempts to enforce the ban.

The bill, HB0104, reads:

“An 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 firearms in this state shall be unenforceable in Wyoming; proving a penalty; and providing for an effective date.”

“Any 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.”
The bill also gives the Wyoming Attorney General’s office the legal authority to protect and defend any state resident from having to comply with a new federal gun law.

Wyoming State Senator Larry Hicks, who co-sponsored the measure, spoke with The Washington Examiner about the message it sends to the White House and those in Congress who support a ban on ‘assault weapons’ or a ban on high-capacity magazines.
