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.
