Many 2nd Amendment supporters have been wondering what can be done to stop this president who has made it pretty clear that confiscation is his ultimate goal.
This meme suggests a possible solution that might not be a bad idea in terms of what approach should be taken to push back against this administration’s attempted gun grab.
The meme is hinting at laws like one proposed in Wyoming about two years ago that would make it a crime for federal agents to enforce federal gun laws in the state.
The Wyoming House of Representatives passed two bills on Friday geared toward protecting or expanding gun rights in the state, including one aimed at nullifying some of the new federal gun restrictions proposed by the Obama administration.
Both bills, which passed 46-13, head to the Republican-dominated Senate, where their prospects for passage were considered good. Republican Governor Matt Mead has not said whether he would sign either measure into law.
One of the bills, the so-called Firearm Protection Act, would seek to invalidate any new federal bans or restrictions on semi-automatic firearms or ammunition magazines. It also precludes state enforcement of those restrictions, if passed at the federal level.
Wyoming is one of several states where legislators have proposed laws seeking to nullify new federal gun restrictions, said Jon Griffin, a policy associate with the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Among the other states where such laws have been introduced this year are Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, he said.
Interesting idea. Although some argue that this would never hold up in federal court, it seems like the last line of defense against the hysterical push to disarm American citizens is passing laws at the state level.
Eight states have passed laws voiding federal positions on guns.
From Gun Wars:
In Idaho, the Legislature unanimously passed a law to keep any future federal gun measures from being enforced in the state. In Kansas, a law passed last year says federal regulation doesn’t apply to guns manufactured in the state. Wyoming, South Dakota and Arizona have had laws protecting “firearms freedom” from the U.S. government since 2010.
A News21 analysis shows 14 such bills were passed by legislators in 11 states, mainly in Western states, along with Kansas, Tennessee and Alaska. Of those, 11 were signed into law, though one was later struck down in court. In Montana, Missouri and Oklahoma, three others were vetoed.
More than three-quarters of U.S. states have proposed nullification laws since 2008. More than half of those bills have come in the last two years after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. All but three have been introduced since President Barack Obama took office.
The Wyoming bill that was passed by the legislature was not signed into law but the way things are going it wouldn’t be surprising if more states trended in this direction.
