A bill filed in the Wyoming House would work toward creating a virtual ‘gun rights sanctuary state’ by prohibiting the enforcement of any federal gun control deemed an infringement on the Second Amendment.
A coalition of 12 Republicans introduced House Bill 118 (Second Amendment Preservation Act) that would bar local enforcement of any gun control law deemed an infringement on the rights of Wyoming citizens including:
- taxes and fees on firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition that would have a chilling effect on firearms ownership;
- registration and tracking schemes applied to firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition that would have a chilling effect;
- any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens;
- any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens.
The bill was received for introduction in the House on February 7.
