Wyoming Representatives Want to Make Federal Gun Control A Crime!

Screen Shot 2013-01-08 at 5.26.28 PMI have always loved Wyoming, and today I found one more reason:  A group of State representatives and Senators want to make it illegal to enforce any gun ban imposed by the Federal Government.  Read the Bill here.  I have pasted some of it below so you can read the gist of it yourself.  I am a huge states-rights person, and this why: If you don’t like the state you are in, you can MOVE! California is clearing out, I am sure they have room for you.

  1. Everyone needs to look up the DICK ACT OF 1902, also known as the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws. It states, “The President of the United States has zero authority without violating the Constitution to” enforce gun-control on the American people.

  2. This is statute pure puffery. It is patently illegal for states to enact laws that create a conflict with federal laws (Constitutional Law 101). States can abstain from enforcing federal laws with their own resources but they cannot carte blanche forbid such enforcement by citizens or federal officers. The *moment* the federal government enacts any regulation(s) on semiautomatics this Wyoming statute will be null and void. Sorry to disappoint.

    1. I realize that all you say is true, and it may be all for show – but it is push back and it can fire up the “gun owner” base. It let’s us know who is on our side of this debate.

    2. The moment the federal goverment starts ignoring the 2nd amendment, we start ignoring what pretends to be the federal government.

      We brought that government into this world with our own right hands and our own guns. It is our creature, not the other way around. It continues to exist just so far as it remains legitimate in our eyes, and that is conditional on it obeying our constitution.

    3. Hay big “Attorney” Have you not heard? We have a 10th Ammendment. And Stats can Nullify any law handed down by the Federal Government thats against the will of the people.
