Ariz. bill would outlaw US firearms enforcement

PHOENIX - With the threat of new federal gun control laws and regulations looming,
a state legislator wants to provide legal cover for Arizonans who do not want to
obey them - and penalize federal officials who try to enforce them.

The proposal by Rep. Steve Smith, R-Maricopa, makes it illegal for any public servant
to enforce "any act, law, statute, rule or regulation" of the federal government
relating to personal firearms or accessories within the boundaries of Arizona. It
defines public servants to include not just state and local employees but also legislators,
judges, jurors, witnesses and consultants who perform government functions.

Another provision extends the prohibition to include federally licensed firearms dealers.

There would be no penalty for any of those individuals for violating the proposed law.
Smith said HB 2291 would instead provide a defense for those who believe the
Second Amendment precludes any new rules.

1. Damnation

I have really grown to hate the stupid in this state. I have lived her over 20 years, and it just seems like year after year, it gets more idiotic. This bill has about as much chance as a snow-ball in hell of being upheld.

2. Arizona wants to be able to ignore federal laws. So lets ignore the requests for federal monies.

 

Fair is fair.

3. I just heard on KJZZ that publicans are not

generally supporting this proposed violation of the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution. They've apparently learned THAT lesson.
