I 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.
