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.
