This week, Wyoming lawmakers introduced a bill banning the federal government from enforcing an assault weapons ban or a prohibition on high-capacity magazines in the state, calling the effort an attempt to “take the Second Amendment seriously.”

The bill, which is sponsored by eight Wyoming state representatives and two state senators, calls for federal agents who attempt to enforce those measures to be imprisoned for at least one year and up to five years, and fined a maximum of $5,000.

It also contains broad language prohibiting any “public servant … or dealer selling any firearm in this state” from enforcing “any act, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States government relating to a personal firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in Wyoming and that remains exclusively within the borders of Wyoming.”

    Actually, I am a small (very) bussinessman. I have never paid the highest amount of taxes then any other country and neither have you. Our highest tax rate is lower then several European countries.
    I am not sixty five and haven’t hade forty years to put into a bussiness, although I have put in twenty.
    I now serve in public office and take no salary and have put in a thirty hour week as a volunteer while still working fifty to sixty at my regular job.
    I have a graduate degree and no one paid my way. I went to school on veteran’s benefits, and on my own dime, working as I did so.
    I am a proud veteran, the son, nephew, cousin grandson and uncle of veterans. I am FAR better informed then you and don’t need to curse to make my point. By your mention of a husband I assume you are a woman (although you could be gay) though by your language you are no lady.
