    Wyoming Rep. Kendell Kroeker has sponsored and introduced HB0104. the Firearms Protection Act. Representatives Baker, Burkhart, Jaggi, Miller, Piiparinen, Reeder and Winters and Senators Dockstader and Hicks have co-sponsered this bill.

    Today, HB104 passed the full state house by a vote off 46-13.

    Wyoming’s Firearms Protection Act, is “an act relating to firearms; providing that any federal law which attempts to ban a semi-automatic firearm or to limit the size of a magazine of a firearm or other limitation on in this state shall be unenforceable in Wyoming; providing a penalty; and providing for an effective date.” This act nullifies all federal laws made after Jan. 1, 2013.

    I have dreamed about living in the Grand Tetons.. Wish I had the money to live out there.. Wyoming's mountains are some of most beautiful in the world. Lot of places to shoot and non-restrictive gun laws and pro 2A government.

    Another rebel state standing up for their rights.

    That country sure is pretty.

    Wyoming is a beautiful state for many reasons. Like Alaska, I envy the people who are lucky enough to live there.

    Well, looks like I've found where I'm building a house after I win the lotto.

    A great sentiment in regards to the non-enforcement of any future Federal firearms/magazine bans.

    Would love to visit there someday but Wyoming is a bit too far north for my comfort level to even consider moving there any time soon.

    I like the bill, but it is just a position statement. Heck, we were the last state to raise the drinking age to 21. I have no doubt Uncle Sam would come up with some kind of blackmail to financially brow beat into submission if some type of ban were put into place.

    I do hope the Texas governor and legislature would preempt to declare unlawful any new gun ban laws coming from Washington. Once Texas says it, it will hold much weight as comng from the biggest state in the CONUSA

    It's not just a "position statement" if the state is willing to arrest Federal officers violating that law. It comes down to whether or not they have the courage to do it.

    I have always loved Wyoming and fortunately live with in a reasonable drive of it. It will be interesting to see what happens with these if something does happen with federal gun control (hopefully nothing does). If the feds pass something it very hard to enforce if local and state law enforcement doesn't enforce it. The feds dont have enough man power to enforce the laws themselves.

    Three important pro gun rights bills have passed through our House and are now headed to the Senate.
    It isn't over yet, but many of us believe the Governor, who is tired of the Feds walking roughshod over us, will sign them if passed.
    And let'em have at it in court!

    Wyoming is a great state. I have vacationed there several times even though I had to drive from Alabama to get there. I visited Yellowstone the year before and the year after the big fire. When I go there I always drive over Snowy Range Pass. That is some awesome scenery. The last time I visited there (two years ago) I stopped at and was given a tour of the Virginia Dale Stage Station. That was very interesting.

    What's with this smoke screen reputation Texas has got for being freedom-loving? Its laws make it look like California when compared to, say, Kentucky or Arizona.

    Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska are all to die for

    beautiful! If you learn a little about what's under Yellowstone, you might think this 2nd amendment stuff is small potatoes if it ever goes up.

    He has done a lot on this Bill, above and beyond a typical politician would. I've been in regular contact with him (as an out of stater that voiced my support for him and his actions) and he really is trying his hardest. Everyone should thank him and support him.

    He also recommends a Wyoming gun group to send your donations to help keep up the good fight.
