Is it just me, or is this great?

Wyoming has joined a growing list of states with self-declared exemptions from federal gun regulation of weapons made, bought and used inside state borders – but lawmakers in the Cowboy State have taken the issue one step further, adopting significant penalties for federal agents attempting to enforce Washington's rules.

According to a law signed into effect yesterday by Democratic Gov. Dave Freudenthal, any agent of the U.S. who "enforces or attempts to enforce" federal gun rules on a "personal firearm" in Wyoming faces a felony conviction and a penalty of up to two years in prison and up to $2,000 in fines.

WND reported just days ago when Utah became the third state, joining Montana and Tennessee, to adopt an exemption from federal regulations for weapons built, sold and kept within state borders.

A lawsuit is pending over the Montana law, which was the first to go into effect.

But Wyoming's law goes further, stating, "Any official, agent or employee of the United States government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Wyoming and that remains exclusively within the borders of Wyoming shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, shall be subject to imprisonment for not more than two (2) years, a fine of not more than two thousand dollars ($2,000.00), or both."

Looks like the feds will be withholding, highway, school or other funding. That is how they get the states to line up and comply. With WYs' low number of population they probably recieve more federal funds then tax money they send to DC.
 
They withhold federal highway funds and the state could just close I-80 to outside traffic. It would hurt dearly.

I wish Utah, Montana, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico would all pass laws like this. Then if the Feds push things too far just become our own little country. I know the idea is far fetched and it's only a dream but it's my little dream and no one can take it from me.

Oh yeah and I forgot. When we become our own little country we tax the hell (like 700% or so) any goods crossing our borders into California. You know... To fund our highways that we lost money for becoming our own little country.
 
Dude we are broke, charge all you want..We won't pay...LOL..I wish more states would tell DC to kiss off..OH, i will ship all the tree huggers to you..FREE..They will stop you in your tracks..:D
 
Ryan just stating a fact. This is a common federal government strong arm tactic they pull with states all the time. The threat of; or actually witholding funding. California for the longest time was a 55MPH state after the federal speed limit was repealed. The feds threatened to withhold highway funding and California reluctantly started raising the speed limits on the interstate system in rural areas. Not that many people along I-5 or I-15 adhered to 55MPH anyway, but the threat was there.

Muni, the transit system I work for had that threat held over their heads by the FTA for two items, starting to use Bio-Diesel and purchasing either hybrid or CNG powered vehicles.

I dream of moving to AZ, but it ain't going to happen. Remember what happened the last time some states got the notion to form their own little country.

Yea, I remember, the second time I think it will be much uglier.
 
Agreed Rich. The population is much more P.O.'d this time. Even I am beginning to believe that DC is getting out of touch with the citizens. But we will probably just fall in line and re-elect the incumbents.

That would never happen, as the Constitution gives the right to the federal government for maintainig interstate commerce, and closing I-80 would definitly hinder interstate commerce.

This time at least it won't be between the states, it's going to be tween the states and the fed, and without the states, the fed doesn't exist.

I'll keep making useful "things" in the basement.
 
I know it would never happen the way I want it to. It's just a pipe dream.

^I like that idea, except I think the Republic of TX should engulf NM as well....
 
(a) I like the fact that the Louisiana Purchase appears to have its boot up the East's ass
(b) California can go forth and multiply, if they want to run up a huge deficit and be lefties
(c) when can I move there?
 
Heck make TX, NM, and AZ all one, they have a similar climate/culture/mindset/etc

Nobody but a Texan has the mindset of a Texan. I've been around an in that state for a good portion of my nearly 40 years on this rock, and know this to be true from experience. Grew up (so to speak) in NM not far from where JNickel is, live in CO now, stationed in TX for a bit (too long).

Proximity does not equal parity. Politically on the other side of the spectrum from CA (spent a few years out there too), but many similarities exist. Too many people and too much unsustainable farming for the number of people for one.

I still remember a great bumper sticker from my childhood.
"Flush twice, Texas needs our water."

Texas was fighting for water rights from the Mesilla Valley (in a move something like Burns Slant Drilling).
 
Can I have 72hrs notice?

Sure, but we get to broadcast that 72 hour warning to everybody, in every language extant in CA. You wouldn't get a 100 yards trying to drive out of there! :wave1: :roflmao: :wave1: :roflmao:

Actually if we just gave that message to everyone in Ca with an IQ over about 40 the push to get out of the state would be quite small.

It's how the founding fathers designed the Constitution, the People and the State should be able hold the Federal Government in check.....if not, we are Socialist......next stop, Communism.

I was just referring to conservativeness and guns. :)
