Gun Control Bill Plagued With Problems

January 17, 2013 State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Leland 2

A bill that has gained a fair amount of national attention even though it hasn’t yet come to the floor of the Wyoming Legislature would basically tell the federal government it cannot regulate gun ownership or gun control for Wyoming’s residents.  Teton County Senator Leland Christiansen says the bill is now being refined to address some inherent problems with its provisions.  He says it includes a description that says “no federal agents or anyone working with the federal agents will enforce their laws in Wyoming.”  He says it goes on to outline the penalties for doing so saying if that federal person or a public servant is involved in the prosecution, they can be charged with a felony.  Some of the senators, he says, believe it could be against the Wyoming constitution.  Furthermore, Christiansen says “a Wyoming citizen could be called to jury duty in the federal court, and if they don’t show up, they could be charged with a federal crime – and if they do show up, they could be charged with a Wyoming crime.” As yet, the bill has not been scheduled for introduction, but already people in other parts of the country are taking notice.  A state representative in Texas has announced that he is taking a cue from Wyoming House Bill 104 and plans to submit his own version of the plan in the Texas legislature.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
