I like it. The irony is that a state law can't supersede a federal law so this is an unconstitutional state law to prevent enforcement of an unconstitutional federal law.

The Wyoming Constitution already provides for the right to keep and bear arms. This new legislation is simply designed to draw a line in the sand. We'll worry about the constitutionality later. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.

Article 1, Section 24. Right to bear arms.
The right of citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and of the state shall not be denied.

"And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on."

I hope the bill passes, I will be interested to see how it plays out.

Yea, I had heard this was going on up in Montana too, though I don't know the details. The states ought to start pushing back on the Federal government and letting them know their "place". If it's not sold or transported interstate, then keep your grubby little hands off of it.

I would love to see firearm manufacturers starting to set up shop in each state, manufacturing and distributing within the confines of their own borders. The feds would throw a fit and try to regulate it, but they'd have so many court cases in the system, Holder wouldn't know what to do with them all.

Good luck in Wyoming! Go get 'em.

When states joined the union they were required to honor the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments). This then became a contract between the federal government and each state.

If bama issues an executive order, then he is breaking the contract and all states are free to enact any laws since the Constitution is no longer in effect. :angry:

And the next logical step is secession and likely civil war. Pray it doesn't come to that.

Things are becoming more and more polarized. Increasingly there is a clear line being drawn between political, legal and individual groups. It seems to me to be rapidly intensifying and expanding. If it continues it will almost certainly result in civil conflict.

We should all remember that when the Soviet Union was on the verge of collapse the United States Government was intensely encouraging the Soviet satellite states to assert themselves and break away from the communist bloc. I doubt you’ll hear our government sing that song when it comes to our States.

The headline “The Breakup of the Soviet Union” is old news. The new headline will read: “The Breakup of the United States.”

Secession and civil war vs the continued slow circling of the drain. hhhmmm... tough call. At least one of those options would get us to a position where we can start over and move on faster.

The US constitution would always be in effect. It is now effectively being used as toilet paper, a doormat, rolling papers, and kindling, but its still in effect.

I don't think it ever would come to that if gun owners and states that value freedom like Wyoming stand their ground and don't cower and back down. Sure, liberals want to control, dominate, and force everyone into their world view, but they also don't want a civil war, in the end they are still bleeding heart liberals and won't want a war on our soil no matter what their philosophical beliefs are. If these states stood their ground at threat of a civil war, then they would ultimately compromise and allow those states to either separate, or be exempted from the federal law. The trick is TO NOT BACK DOWN....period.
