WOW! this will raise some eyebrows
 
New Wyoming Gun Law – Jail Terms for Feds

Executive Summary – Wyoming passed a new gun law similar to Tennessee and Montana. The Firearms Freedom Act. This law states that any gun made, sold and kept within the State of Wyoming is not subject to Federal Gun Control Laws. This means no registration. Wyoming did however go further that the other states. They said that any State or Federal Official who tries to enforce any federal firearm law regarding a firearm made, sold and kept in Wyoming could face a $2000 fine and two years in prison. See how the law reads:
“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.” (Note the federal government was never given the right to interfere with or regulate intrastate commerce (within a given state).
“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.” (Please note if a federal agent was convicted of this law it would make him or her a felon and thus they could not own firearms and would be ineligible to hold a federal law enforcement position. And face firing and loss of pension. Of course if they ignore Wyoming convictions under this law then Wyoming may ignore all federal arrest warrants they felt to be inconsistent with the constitution like tax cases.)
Discussion - The Federal ATF are not amused by the bill and of course have no intentions of following a state law. This pushes the country closer and closer to a full out and out revolution (think shots fired) as the fed oversteps their bounds and powers delegated to them by the constitution which is the document that empowers them in the first place. Montana is taking the federal gun control people to federal court to test their law. This is one of the stupidest things imaginable. They think a federal judge is going to side with them and let the process of forcing the federal government to return to their constitutional powers only get support in the federal courts. We will see what happens when they lose in court. We think Wyoming did the right thing by putting penalties in the game for the feds. This will pitch the feds against the local police, which is a good thing for the people that want to remain free and exercise their constitutional rights. Rest assured Wyoming got the attention of the feds and has them boxed into a corner. If they ignore this they lose. If they react against this they convict themselves of usurping their authority. It is a lose lose situation. Obama is the perfect storm waiting to happen.

I've always said that State's Laws should trump Federal Laws every time. That's the way the Founders set the Country up and that's the way it should work. Federal government was NEVER meant to look "inward" to the Country, only "outward" to other Countries in the matter of treaties and tariffs imposed on imported goods.
The sooner the Feds get their A$$ handed to em' by a few States to wake them the HE!! up the better. The Feds need to stay out of State business, period. ;)

several states are looking at doing the same thing, and i believe Texas is one also. it's them showing the federal government what they think about another ban or restriction on certain firearms. i see it as a huge step forward in gun owners rights. these states are steppin up and saying enough is enough!

This is great. Rather than being defensive these states have gone on the offensive. The federal government is in violation of the 2nd amendment It shouldn't merely be stopped it needs to be pushed back. Eric holder was responsible for one of the largest guns sales knowingly to criminals. It went bad either through negligence or criminal activity under his watch. And the justice department, which he head, decides no action is warranted. Meanwhile legal gun owners facing increasing restrictions are facing even more restrictions. Federal government studies indicate that one of the greatest factors placing guns in criminal hands is trafficking and straw purchasers and yet the government has done nothing to stop these practices yet limits the rights of law abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families. The NRA should be focusing its attention on attacking illegal sales and weapon transfers on forcing legislation on these issues in exchange for increasing gun owners rights including less restrictive concealed carry permits for law abiding and qualified citizens.

I saw nothing about class 3 items :confused:

Does this mean they won't enforce 1986, 1968 or 1934 laws???

The push back against Obama and his Left Wing Dems is large and growing. I might add the rate of NRA members to the population is the largest in the country. Wyoming is also a "Free" state, no permits to carry concealed or open. As you know Freedom Arms is located in Wyoming. I expect everyone in the Cowboy state will carry one of those protected guns. I will.;)

If you are a BATF agent in Wyoming I am your worst nitemare.Wyoming State Law enforcement.:eek:

If it comes to that, I will move, Lock, Stock & Barrel, to any state that will support the Constitution.

sputnik1988 01-27-2013 01:53 AM

If they are ignoring the NFA, i might have to move.

Time to write my representatives here in KY, and push for it here.

No one in Wyoming is making Machine Guns at this time. Freedom Arms and some Sharps are all I know of. Freedom Arms made some neat little .22 Mag. Sub Guns for the CIA years ago. When the order was canceled all the Subs were cut up.:(
Only arms made in Wyoming are covered under the new law.
