This IS the time to be protecting the 2nd amendment with a government gone wild and a congress on the verge of unconstitutional acts. Reconciliation? Skipping Reconciliation? 36 Czars? Executive Orders Gone Wild?
If this government wants people to relax on protecting the 2nd amendment, maybe they should stop acting like dictators.
The Wyoming State Senate, on a 30-0 vote, this week passed HB95, the Firearms Freedom Act.
Wyoming joins Tennessee, Utah and Montana in exercising their Tenth Amendmment, or “state sovereignty” rights.
The bill states in part:
A personal firearm, a firearm action or receiver, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in the state to be used or sold within the state is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of Congress to regulate interstate commerce.
And these aren’t just pretty words, the Act has some teeth in it:
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 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 more than two (2) years, a fine of not more than ten thousand dollars ($2,000.00), or both.
In other words Congress, mind your own damn business!
