No surprise here...Alaska bill would bar enforcement of new gun laws

Jabba the Hut -- excuse me, speaker of the house Mike Chenault -- has introduced a bill making it a misdemeanor for any federal official to attempt to enforce new gun laws in Alaska. (if you doubt the Jabba comparison, check the photo at the link.)



JUNEAU A bill introduced in the Alaska House on Wednesday would make it a misdemeanor for a federal official or agent to try to enforce any new restrictions on gun ownership.

HB69, from House Speaker Mike Chenault, was introduced the same day that President Barack Obama unveiled a package of executive orders and legislative proposals aimed at curbing gun violence.

Obama's proposals, which follow last month's deadly shooting at a Connecticut school, include background checks for all gun sales and a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. His 23 executive orders touched on such things as gun safety, background checks and mental health.

Chenault, in a news release, said work on his bill began before Obama's announcement Wednesday.

"The president is using it to further his liberal agenda to try and disarm and disenfranchise law-abiding Americans from their enshrined Second Amendment rights," he said. "No one should be comfortable with that, regardless of where you sit on the issue."

1. While I would love to laugh and say "Watch this get tossed out by the courts",

 

knowing the history of the 5 GOP appointed justices on the Supreme Court it wouldn't be surprising to see a 5-4 to uphold these ridiculous laws.
