Default Wyoming telling the feds... Screw you!

Wyoming will be voting soon on an amended "Firearms protection act" bill. If passed it allow Wyoming police to arrest and charge the agents with a felony for enforecing federal gun laws in Wyoming, and if convicted would make them instant felons which, as you know, would make it illegal for them to possess firearms. They would loose their jobs, pensions, etc... etc... etc...


The actual bill language.

I am no expert on the law but my layman's interpretation of it it sure does sound sweet.

Will find out soon enough if it passes i guess.

People in Washington tend to overreact," Kroeker said. "They try to place blame on gun owners punishing in the innocent to pay for the crimes of the guilty."

Hicks explained that the model of the bill was taken from a bill passed in the State of Montana in 2009 adding that it wasn’t much different from what he’d seen other states do.

“I don’t think this is controversial in Wyoming at all,” he added. “I fully expect this bill to pass.”
I agree -but the middle part im not sure is totaly right. Its a lot like the law passed in 2010 here( that had more to do with guns only made here though- Firearms fredoom act))-( and that was modeled after others state laws also- but witha diffence in it to ( from what i understand anyways) from others( states laws) being the part( what some call the teeth?) -
. If passed it allow Wyoming police to arrest and charge the agents with a felony for enforecing federal gun laws in Wyoming,
But Wyoming’s Firearms Freedom Act is harsher than the other states’ laws, as it says that any state or federal official who tries to enforce any federal gun law on firearms made and sold in Wyoming could face a $2,000 fine and up to a year in prison.
The other law(s) ( and this one) Could be tested in the courts -etc to( hasnt yet that i know of anyways)

But anyways to im not a lawyer ( or do i play one on here )-i will leave that up to the lawmakers& lawyers etc.

From my understanding i thought Federal Law trumps state law. That why california has had issues in the past with the legalities of pot. but if it works i will be glad for them.
