Wyoming proposes ‘Firearm Protection Act’

state-flag-wyomingListed as House Bill 0104, the Firearm Protection Act is sponsored by eight House members and two Senators in the State of Wyoming.  The bill is less than three pages long and begins:

“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; providing a penalty; and providing for an effective date.”

It essentially re-creates a felony punishable by prison and fines for any agent (federal or local or even private gun dealer) who attempts to enforce an unconstitutional firearms law the infringes on Wyoming’s sovereign rights.  Yes, I said “re-creates.”  The law already exists, passed in 2010, and this law merely amends that to make the misdemeanor into a felony and adds “owned or” to the “owned or manufactured” provisions of the former law – which dealt exclusively with weapons made in Wyoming.

In other words, the law makes it a felony for anyone to attempt to enforce unconstitutional firearms laws on Wyoming citizens.
