MAYBE IT'S TIME TO MOVE TO WYOMING? CAN TEXAS BE FAR BEHIND?

Kinda sounds like the 1860s are starting all over again!

Wyoming Lawmakers Propose ‘Gun Protection’ Legislation

By Rich Denison Yesterday

http://k2radio.com/wyoming-lawmakers-pr ... gislation/

Quote:
Several Wyoming lawmakers are proposing legislation designed to protect gun-owners from any potential federal firearm ban. The “Firearms Protection Act” bill, introduced this week, would make any federal law banning semi-automatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable within the state’s boundaries.

Anyone trying to enforce a federal gun ban could face felony charges under the proposal. It also includes a provision allowing the Wyoming Attorney General’s office to defend any state resident against any federal firearm ban.

KY took a step in the right direction. Not as direct as WY.


Kentucky voters make hunting, fishing a constitutional right

Posted: 11/06/2012

FRANKFORT, Ky. - Voters overwhelmingly decided Tuesday that the right to hunt and fish should be protected by the Kentucky constitution.

The amendment passed with 84 percent of voters favoring to 16 percent opposed.

“This amendment takes what is now the privilege of hunting and fishing making it a right of the citizens of the Commonwealth,” said Mark Nethery, president of the League of Kentucky Sportsmen and a supporter of the amendment.

The amendment, backed by the National Rifle Association, was viewed as a preemptive measure against any infringement on hunting and fishing. Last month, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a bill that makes it illegal to use dogs to hunt bears and bobcats.

“Hunting and fishing is not currently under threat today in Kentucky, however there are many groups across the country whose goal is to do away with hunting and fishing,’ Nethery of Louisville, Ky. said before the election. “The approach of these groups is very organized, systematic and well funded.”

Opponents of the amendment argued there were far more important things to consider as constitutional amendments. Others said the amendment was geared to ensure more extremist Republicans turned out for the election. And some the amendment amounted to special interest groups making a statement and nothing more.

“These amendments are just ways for special interest groups to make a statement,” Ashley Byrne, campaign specialist for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in New York, said. “They are a solution in search of a problem.”

While passage of the amendment would extend constitutional protection to hunting and fishing, still the state Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources would continue to regulate both.

Fourteen other states have amended their constitutions to protect hunting and fishing, according to the NRA.

We did that here in Virginia 4 or 5 years ago. Not sure how that will protect the right to own an AR and a 30 round mag even though they are used by many around here for hunting turkey and varmints.

Virginia did pass a law last year which prohibits any Va. law enforcement or National Guard from assisting any Federal authorities in the arrest of a Virginia citizen where habeas corpus is not honored.

That is a good law. We have a Democrat Gov so that wouldn't get too far. LOL

I lived in Wyoming. I was there at the time Chaney was the Gov. I have lived in Casper, Gillette, and Rawlins. I can't recommend Rawlins. The wind blows at least 40 mph constant, just about every day except for 4 or 5 days in July. When it's calm it almost seems strange. Wyoming is beautiful in some areas and a whole lot of nothing in others. You can drive over a foothill and see a hundred miles down the Highway and it makes you want to drive a Hundred and twenty miles per hour because it seems like you are getting no where. I used to wait for a trucker to speed past me and then tail behind him. They always have the good radar detectors. There aren't a whole lot of places to hide (speed traps). At least between Casper and Rawlins. However most of the time except for two months out of the year it feels like you are in a walk in cooler if you go outside. It's not to uncommon for the oil riggers to work in 60 below when you count the wind chill. There are natural Hot springs, there are mountains as high as 11,000 feet. Devils tower, of course Yellowstone. I have been threatening to by property and retire there, my wife is scared of the isolation. I love it. I have had enough Hot weather to last a life time. I have seen snow cut roads with walls 10 feet high on one mountain. Cheyenne is a real pretty town with wood sided high peak houses. Every town seems like it's about 200 mile apart though. Most of the towns are under 10,000. Casper was 50,000, Gillette was an oil boom town and it goes up an down when ever oil or coal are doing well. However if you are not close to a mountain or a town you can go 100's of miles without seeing one tree. The north plate seems kind of strange without any tree's around it at all, but it's unchanneled and the Rainbow Trout are plentiful and easy to cook or fry.

Number Of Nation's Sheriffs Refusing To Enforce Unconstitutional Gun Laws Snowballs

January 24, 2013

By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr.

http://cnsnews.com/blog/gregory-gwyn-wi ... l-gun-laws

Quote:
From Florida to California, a growing number of the nation's sheriffs are standing up to gun control measures proposed by both the administration and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Many law enforcement officials have written letters to President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden voicing their concerns over what they believe is an effort to infringe upon the Second Amendment.

In New Mexico, 30 of the state's 33 county sheriffs have reminded state lawmakers that they are under oath to support the U.S. Constitution, and that includes the Second Amendment.

CNSNews.com previously reported that 28 of the 29 sheriff's in Utah sent a letter to President Obama stating that they will not enforce any new gun laws they believe to be unconstitutional.

A host of Oregon sheriffs have said that they will not comply with any new unconstitutional gun regulations:

Sheriff Craig Zanni wrote, "I have and will continue to uphold my Oath of Office including supporting the Second Amendment," in a letter to Coos County citizens.
Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin said he would refuse to enforce any new Federal gun law he believes is unconstitutional.
In a letter to Vice President Joe Biden, Grant County Sheriff, Glenn Palmer writes: "I will not tolerate nor will I permit any federal incursion within the exterior boundaries of Grant County, Oregon, where any type of gun control legislation aimed at disarming law -abiding citizens is the goal or objective."
Sheriff Gil Gilbertson of Josephine County told Biden in a letter: "Any rule, regulation, or executive order repugnant to the constitutional rights of the citizens of this County will be ignored by this office."
Sheriff Tim Mueller of Linn County, Oregon says his department will not participate in any overreaching and unconstitutional federal firearms restrictions.

In California, Sheriff Adam Christianson of Stanislaus County wrote to the vice president: "I refuse to take firearms from law abiding citizens and will not turn law-abiding citizens into criminals by enforcing useless gun control legislation."

A letter sent to Sen. Dianne Feinstein from Sheriff Jon Lopey of Siskiyou County, California states: "Our founding fathers got it right and many politicians are getting it wrong."

In Missouri, Lawrence County Sheriff Brad Delay tells the president: "I will...rise to the defense and aid of all Americans should the federal government attempt to enact any legislation, or executive order that impedes, erodes, or otherwise diminishes their constitutional right to keep and bear arms."

At a town hall meeting, Sheriff Denny Peyman of Jackson County, Kentucky told citizens "you are never going to pull a gun from Jackson County."

Smith County, Texas Sheriff, Larry Smith has said, "I will not enforce an unconstitutional law against any citizen in Smith County. It just won't happen."

In Florida, Martin County Sheriff, Bill Snyder said that he will not enforce federal gun laws: "Local law enforcement authorities are not empowered to enforce Federal law," Snyder said.
