This is fantastic. I hope this idea spreads to other states as fast as Obama distributing the wealth:

WASHINGTON EXAMINER – Wyoming lawmakers have proposed a new bill that, if passed, would nullify any federal restrictions on guns, threatening to jail federal agents attempting to confiscate guns, ammunition magazines or ammunition.

The bill – HB0104 – states 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.”

The bill is sponsored by eight Wyoming state representatives and two state senators. If passed, the bill would declare any federal gun regulation created on or after January 1, 2013 to be unenforceable within the state.

    Seems as if the civil war (cold version) is now underway. How, I wonder, will the band of baboons in DC respond?

    Hey, republican Governor’s, you guys and gals DO KNOW that you can impeach any federal employees, President included without our congress, right? The states have that power, so get with it. Follow Wyoming and Texas’ lead and start decapitating this tyrannical government. You, Governors have this power.

    • poljunkie

      Yep, those who poo pooed Perry might be having some second thoughts right about now.

      “I’m actually for gun control – use both hands,” Gov Rick Perry

      • MiketheMarine

        Exactly. The Marine Corps version of that saying is this, “Gun control is using both hands and hitting what you are aiming at!”

        • Landscaper

          You guys can hit a target at 500 meters and get trained to do it on the range at Parris Island. My oldest was with the 2/6 Weapons Co. in Afghan. They told him to get his rifle and forget about mortar shells. He shoots like his dad. Very well.

          • MiketheMarine

            Now, imagine 100 or so of us on line with scopes and a life or death situation on our hands. I, for one, would not like to be down range of that line.

            Besides, If I’m not mistaken, you and I have already agreed that we’re joining/ creating our own little unit, haven’t we? I think you should be CO, I”d prefer to be your Company Gunnery Sergeant. I’ll handle the discipline and training and you and the brain trust,the score of folks here MUCH smarter than me, with a little input from your company gunny, me, can work out our tactics and plans.

            I would not want to be on the other side of that.

              Can I be you overseas liaison officer, please?

        One of the reasons I supported Rick Perry in the primary.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        I share Governor Perry’s view on gun control as well. :->

      • Orangeone

        I’ll support Perry in 2016 against Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, that’s for certain!

        • poljunkie

          I really like Perry. I wish he had been a little more prepared in the debates…for three reasons.
          1, 2, and….oh, ummm.

          Seriously…He needed a little more public speaking practice on the National stage, but personally i’m more concerned about how he feels/his positions on the issues than how well he speaks.

          • Orangeone

            Perry was 2nd to Cain for me. Too bad he was out before our caucus.

      You know what I never understood? Why states would stand idly by and let their representation in our national government in the Senate go down the drain and remain there via the 17th amendment when 2/3 of the state legislatures have the authority to call a convention to propose amendments (or in this case to repeal an amendment) and reclaim their power and influence in our national government without Congress or the President.

      • sDee

        They would need to start by repealing the 17th.

      • aposematic

        Great point! I too have wondered “what were they thinking ” ratifying the 17th Amend. in the first place and why haven’t they, after realizing the terrible “unintended” consequences, repealed the 17th yet?

      • MiketheMarine

        Agreed, it will be up to us bible thumping, gun clinging peons to “fix” the problem. How about build a giant wall around DC and let them regulate themselves to their tiny, slimy little heart’s content.

        • Rshill7

          Now that would be sweet if they built a wall around DC. We could then surround them and starve them out, just as the “Barbarians” did Rome.

          • Orangeone

            We can also cut off their air space :) Whatever would Barky do if he can’t fly about

      • Orangeone

        We have 30 conservative Governors don’t we? If my math is correct 33-34 are all that are needed. Surely there are enough conservatives to pressure a few more of them to do the right thing!

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      We must keep in mind that they haven’t made it law yet. However, we Wyomingites are a rebellious lot and don’t like the feds telling us what to do, especially the feds with Zero and his leftist administration. I look for it to gain a lot of traction.

        • Amy

          You know – we think about that often these days… Is WISC where we want to be if the yogurt hits the fan? If it hits it soon, where should our E&E plan take us to. Will we be welcome there after the fur starts to fly? Growing up in the mountains, I know damn well that outsiders aren’t looked on too favorably – or trusted for that matter. This sucks – never thought I’d have to look at the US from that perspective.

          • PatrickHenrysBody

            There are a lot of remote places in Wyoming where one can take in the scenery. One of my uncles has a huge parcel of land close to the mountains and his place is pretty self-sufficient. He only has to go into town once in a while to get food and supplies. Oh, he has quite a collection of firearms too…and quite a collection of heads mounted on the walls of his den.

          • Orangeone

            WI is a lot better than MN, that’s for sure!

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          We don’t have any immediate plans to do so. You’re more than welcome to come on in! :-)

      • Marridge

        I live close to the Wyoming border so I want to come and help. My gun instructor told me I have a natural talent since I embroidered my paper target quite accurately. :-))

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          All help is appreciated, my target embroidering friend! :-P

          • Orangeone

            Hope I am welcome as well if I plan to go further west. I had 100% death zone shots in my target :)

            • PatrickHenrysBody

              Of course you’re welcome! :-)

  • Amy

    I’ve always wanted to move south to Texas, but it may be time to head back out west instead. Forget gold – thar’s freedom in them thar hills… No joke either. I miss it anyway – really tired of flat, boring, farm fields…

    I just hope that there isn’t an influx of people who eventually bring their love for big government with them. That’s pretty much what happened to Colorado… :-(

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Wyoming would love to have you! Colorado is California lite.

      • Amy

        I know, and it’s sad. Colorado is where I grew up – we moved when I was a senior in HS (that’s a long, long time ago LOL). When I go back there now I’m saddened.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          Yeah. There used to be a time when you could still see guys walking around in Denver wearing cowboy hats, western style suits, and bolo ties. That was in the early 70s, when I first moved to Denver. About 25 years ago, Colorado had a yuppie invasion and now you have the same leftist mindset there that California has (excluding the People’s Republic of Boulder, which was already a leftist bastion). I’m glad I don’t live there anymore. There are quite a few people who live in Wyoming (no state and local taxes) and commute to as far as Denver because they can pay a fair amount of money for fuel, vehicle maintenance, property taxes, etc. and still have enough money left over. The only thing I don’t understand is why even work in Colorado when they take more taxes out of one’s paycheck, but whatever. If the same people had to live in Colorado, most of them would have to take on a second job to pay the bills.

      • LadymacCO

        So sad, and so true. My husband and I are in Northern Colorado, and we love this state dearly, but lately we find ourselves having regular conversations about a possible Wyoming move. Colorado is becoming more and more blue every day.

    • Marridge

      Love your avatar, Amy.

  • Landscaper

    If Texas is too hot for you, Wyoming is sounding like they have [a pair].

    • Grumpy_in_Arizona

      This is monumental. If it successfully passes and stands up to scrutiny… just think of the possibilities. States could declare the some of the following “unenforceable” under state-law:
      Obama-care,
      EPA Regulations,
      Same-sex marriage,
      Any “Federal Mandate,”
      Etc., etc.

      Wow! I wish the Wyoming people much success!

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Thank you! I will pass the well wishes on to many of my friends, some of whom work for state government.

    • MiketheMarine

      And plenty of weapons and ammo. I like the felony touch on that law they added for federal agents. I will be free to consider a move to another state and occupation in between 1 and 3 years, once dad retires. After that I can go and do whatever strikes my fancy. For some reason, Wyoming, which was NOT in the mix, has now joined in the possible destinations.

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.drakos Richard Drakos

    I read this earlier.

    So funny… just like with healthcare, many states are trying to shelter/immunize themselves against an imperialistic government.

    I wish this was widespread and the 40+ states were on this… you know California, Mass., NY, Illinois, etc. would never do this… but so many other states would… and should.

    God bless them for making a stand! I expect Texas, Georgia, Alaska, and most southern states to also craft something similar, very soon.

    • Orangeone

      And Holder will find a way to sue them all! The GOP Governors should simply pen EOs.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Lol.

        They may be able to do things the “legal way” and still get the same, proper results.

  • sjmom

    Now I know I have to move to another state because the NJ legislature will never follow suit on this.

    Well, the way things are going, I may even move to Wyoming. Maybe I can get a house next to Dick Cheney’s. A dream come true.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    I tell you, I’m damn proud of my state. They do many things right, but a small few other things wrong. The other states, excepting the obvious too-far-gone ones, should follow suit. They need to work on eviscerating the global U.N. agenda 21 crapola next. Hit the global authoritarians where it hurts…fast and hard.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    By the way, I just bought a Springfield XDM .45 ACP today. I can’t wait to get it in my hands…:-)))) Hitting the range soon after I get it!!!

    • sDee

      Nice. Did you get plenty of ammo? Most pistol ammo is still available but 5.56 is scarce – very scare.

      I’ve a 45 ACP caliber exchange kit for my Sig P250 on the way! (I’ll blame Mike for the purchase decision :) ) I am really getting to like that pistol. Two more kits and it will able to shoot most any pistol ammo I can find.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Sorry for not responding in a timely manner. I didn’t realize what time it was and I had to leave so that I could pay for people’s entitlements.

        Yes, I already had the ammo, since I had a 1911 previously. They can’t make 5.56 fast enough to meet the demand. Give the ammo producers time and they’ll catch up. That is why I decided to buy an AK-74 a few years back. Back then, 5.45 ammo was abundant and lower than dirt cheap. Now, good luck on getting ammo for anything at a rather fair price. Everything has gone through the roof because of all the gun control/ban garbage going on. Good for you on making the caliber switch on your Sig. It’s just something about the .45 that makes one feel just a little bit more empowered (if you know what I mean, heh). Have fun! :->

        • Orangeone

          In MN, they are having trouble even keeping .22 and 9mm ammo in stock!

          • PatrickHenrysBody

            Yes, all ammo is being purchased in massive numbers. I wonder, could Zero get a plaque for “Guns and Ammo Salesperson of the Year”?

            • Orangeone

              I’ll have to try and find the sign being Tweeted.  It’s hilarious and right on point.

    • Rshill7

      I bought an AR-15 yesterday :-)

      • Amy

        What’s the delivery time on it? Just curious… I’m hearing about really long backorder time for certain mags & ammo.

        • sDee

          Most places are not giving dates on backorders as they are overwhelmed. 30 and 20 round magazines are impossible to find. Magpul who makes the popular Pmag has a 1 million unit backorder!

          Get your name in a few places – you might try finding or backordering a few AR-15 lowers. They are strighforward to build into a rifle or carbine.

          • Amy

            Thanks sDee – that’s what I was suspecting. Right now we aren’t in the market for anything except a smaller pistol for myself (concealing is really hard with a large weapon!) – and ammo but papa bear was giving serious consideration to changing that budget plan. The place we use hasn’t increased prices on the AR’s or mags like a lot of places but they aren’t giving any ship time either. Talk about stimulating the economy!!! A million + backorders from one company! Wowzers.

            • sDee

              Checkout the subcompact P250 which you can get in an 10 rd (40 S&W) or 6 rd (45acp) and not worry about a magazine ban. Then you can get a kit to switch it over to a full size 9mm with 17rds. There is no license needed or background checks on the kits.

              It is an easy DAO pistol to just pick up and shoot.

              • Amy

                I’ll look into that one – thanks! As well as the kits – hadn’t thought about switching one over to handle more rounds ~

              • Amy

                Weird – I posted a reply but then it disappeared. I’ll reply again! Thanks for the tip – I’ll definitely look into the P250 as well as the kit option. Hadn’t thought about that previously…

    “…and Bingo was his name-o.”

  • proudhispanicconservative

    Unless Obama goes the dictator-like tactic of Executive order, nothing being proposed as far as gun control will get passed, we have to remember that we are having mid term elections and except for Maine all the states up for contention are Red states, and the majority in the senate for the devilcrats is more important then gun control.

      An executive order banning the interstate sale/shipping transport of ammo and magazines would have a chilling effect.

    I just heard about this on the radio while I was driving. The radio host interviewed one of the state lawmakers behind the bill and he mentioned that already state politicians from other states have contacted him re their pending law. If this gains traction throughout other states, I believe it will become an issue for the Supreme Court to tackle. Unlike the Healthcare bill, I think this should be a pretty cut and dry case. The Constitution is pretty clear!

    The preamble of the constitution clearly refers to individual states, not the USA as a nation: ‘We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union’. When the topknot comes undone (the topknot being federal government) we still have 50 individual functioning governments.

    Guns and Murders: America versus the World

    We’ve been hearing more and more gobbledygook lately from more and more self-serving politicians alleging that America is an ultra-violent country where murder is a favorite indoor and outdoor sport, where guns of all kinds are used frequently to kill, where our attorney general Eric Holder considers the possession of a gun shameful, where our president Barack Hussein Obama is reportedly planning on bypassing Congress to unilaterally, effectively repeal the Second Amendment by executive order and thereby strip Americans of their constitutional right “to keep and bear arms.”

    And all that is political poppycock fabricated and calculated to enable liberals to inflame the public into believing guns and not the people who shoot them are the fundamental problem and we should therefore support their gun-grab and disarm the American people. What AG Holder fails to mention is that guns are “cool” (his word) not in the general population but among black youth, and that really is very “shameful.”

    I received an email today from a reliable source.

    Always ready to trust–but compelled to verify as per the advice of the late, great President Ronald Wilson Reagan–I thought it was important to check out the email information on where America stood in the gun-murder line as compared to other large and small, free and dictatorial, pacifistic and militaristic nations of the world.

    It turns out, according to none other than the United Nation’s World Health Organization, that the USA is not only not overrun with murderous people in need of being restrained by government regulations but rather that we are pretty damned tranquil, civil, and law-abiding when it comes to using guns to kill and maim our fellow man.

    We are the third most populous country on the planet with over 315 million residents and, based on firearm manufacturers’ production data, American civilians own approximately 300 million firearms, of which 100 million are handguns.

    Those latter numbers grew significantly after the recent shootings and especially since the Obama administration began making noises about “controlling” and confiscating guns. Indeed, the National Rifle Association reported on Wednesday that it gained over 100,000 new members in the 18 days following the Sandy Hook massacre.

    All those statistics, suggesting as they do that there are far too many weapons in the hands of civilians, would seem to play into the hands of liberals dedicated to government gun control and seizure. However, none of those stats bear any relevance to the reality that although many Americans have easy access to mostly-registered deadly weapons we generally use them legally and far more responsibly than other people.

    As substantiated by the U.N., nations with strict laws governing . . . (Read more at http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=29535.)

    SHOCKA! Washigton Elitist, David Gregory will not be charged for violating DC’s gun laws.

    The reason for not enforcing the law: it would not “serve the best interests of the people of the District”

    At least they are honest.

    In other news….An Army Veteran who had left a couple of lose rounds in his back pack was arrested in DC under the same statute that Gregory violated (DC Criminal Code, Section 7-2506.01).

    I guess it was in the “best interests of the people of the District” to jail and convict the him.

    In 2011, Army Spc. Adam Meckler, who spent 15 months in Iraq and 15-month in Afghanistan during his 9 year military career, was thrown in jail for being in possession of ‘unregistered ammunition.’

    Meckler was arrested at a District VFW office building. He was there dropping off his medical records and was unaware that he had some loose rounds of 9mm ammo at the bottom of his backpack (he had no gun with him). As he walked through the security checkpoint, the rounds set off the metal detector.

    Meckler was cuffed and then subsequently jailed. Not having enough time or money to fight the charges in court, he was forced to accept a plea deal. He now has a criminal record and was added to a database of gun-crime offenders.

    asked about the Gregory incident, Meckler said………….

    “I unknowingly broke the law,” Mr. Meckler said. “Mr. Gregory knowingly broke the law. While both are seemingly harmless, both acts were deemed illegal under the District’s obscure firearms laws.”

    Mr. Meckler, iterated that he would never have intentionally left the rounds in his bag, added, “I think if you had to measure the criminality of the two instances, his should be interpreted as more severe. At the very least, he should be put on probation, pay a fine and be added to the District’s Gun Offender Registry, as I was ordered to do.”
