States trying to protect their citizens from federal anti-gun laws

According to CNS News there is now a growing number of states who are creating their own laws in an attempt to shield their citizens from the possible upcoming anti-gun laws that Obama and his partners are attempting to pass.

At the bottom is a list of the states and their planned bills. Not included is South Carolina, where the “South Carolina Firearms Freedom Act” was filed by Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg) one day before the Newtown, Connecticut shooting. This bill would exempt any gun made in SC from any type of federal regulation. In addition, Governor Nikki Haley has recently confirmed her support for both the 2nd Amendment and the 10th Amendment.

In Ohio, two senators have introduced SB36, which would prohibit firearms seizures, registration and bans in their state.

Sen. Jared Carpenter introduced a bill that would prohibit Kentucky from enforcing new federal gun control laws if they’re enacted. The measure passed by a vote of 34-3.

The Idaho House of Representatives passed a bill that criminalizes the act of enforcing any new federal laws than ban, restrict, confiscate, or require registration of firearms or ammunition in violation of the state’s constitution.

HB219 passed by a 55-13 vote.

In Louisiana, Rep. Jim Morris sponsored a bill that “prohibits the enforcement of federal restrictions regarding the ownership or possession of semi-automatic firearms.”

The House Public Safety Committee in Oklahoma passed HB2021 that would also prohibit the enforcement of federal gun laws.

House Bill 1076, sponsored by Rep. Steve Toth in Texas, would disallow state and local police from enforcing new gun control measures passed by the federal government.

In Kansas, the House approved three pro-gun bills, one of which prohibits the federal government from enforcing gun laws or bans on firearms and accessories manufactured, sold, or kept in the state.

The “Arizona Firearms: Prohibited Enforcement” bill would make it a Class 6 felony for the federal government to enforce new laws or regulations on guns, accessories and ammunition owned or manufactured in the state.

Senate bill 63 in Michigan would exempt firearms and firearms accessories made and sold exclusively in Michigan from federal gun restrictions.

And in Washington State, a state that recently legalized the recreational use of marijuana, the House has introduced HB 1371 which reads as follows:

“Any federal law, rule, regulation, or order created or effective on or after January 1, 2013, shall be unenforceable within the borders of Washington if the law, rule, regulation, or order attempts to: (a) Ban or restrict ownership of a semiautomatic firearm or any magazine of a firearm; or (b) Require any firearm, magazine, or other firearm accessory to be registered in any manner.”
