Wyoming and Nullification

Posted: January 11, 2013 by ShortTimer in Government, Guns, Music, Second Amendment, Tenth Amendment, Texas, Wyoming

Nullification is the ability of the states, as voluntary members of the compact that is the United States, to invalidate illegal federal laws.

Montana’s Firearms Freedom act already has done some of that.

Now Wyoming’s getting onboard.

Sponsored by: KROEKER
AN ACT relating to firearms; providing that any federal law which attempts to ban a semi-automatic firearm or to limit the size of a magazine of a firearm or other limitation on firearms in this state shall be unenforceable in Wyoming; providing a penalty; and providing for an effective date.

Breitbart notes it here:

If the measure passes, it would mean that anyone–even federal agents-who try to enforce a ban within the state borders could be charged with a felony.

Of course, Wyoming has historical good reason to need the right to bear arms as well as to be wary of federal government intervention as well.

And there are plenty of other examples.

(And yes, for those familiar with the Johnson County War, it would mean the map in the previous entry would have to be voluntary… which is the point – that no man should be coerced, let alone be rendered defenseless against a mercenary army of killers sent murder an entire county.)

And from the TSRA:

Lt. Governor David Dewhurst was recently asked if a remedy was available in the state of Texas to stop firearm confiscations and other serious attacks on 2nd Amendment rights.

Dewhurst answered that he could be named as the plaintiff in a lawsuit on behalf of the State of Texas against the Federal Government.  A temporary restraining order would halt the onerous action.  The suit would likely go to the U.S. Supreme Court which could take 2 years.  Our lawyer?  Why,  Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, of course!

    It is a total crime that a state would be FORCED to pass legislation preventing enforcement of a stupid federal law or series of laws…By my reckoning, to date not one GUN, acting on its own has terminated a life force…Logic dictates that an inanimate object must have an operator, hence GUNS DO NOT KILL, PEOPLE WHO USE GUNS KILL…..
    When will the loony liberal left figure this out? When will they figure out that CRIMINALS, by their nature, will not abide by a law passed to safeguard them [the criminal] from law abiding citizens who happen to own guns??

  2. […] Four days ago, Wyoming got moving on a bill to nullify any federal gun laws that would make illegal modern arms. […]

  3. […] now one of only four states with constitutional carry.  Wyoming residents remember things like the Johnson County War.  They know that guns have utility, for good or evil.  Disarming people makes no one […]

  4. […] passed the FU Magpul Act, Misssissippi… passed what exactly?  Utah passed what?  And Wyoming, which is pushing bills that would make enforcing unconstitutional gun laws a felony passed an anti-gun law?  […]
