Controversial Gun Bill Dies
by K2 News Desk, firstname.lastname@example.org
A bill that would have made any new federal gun control laws unenforceable, and basically null and void in Wyoming has died in the State Senate. An amended version of the bill did make it out of committee, but was not voted on in the full Senate on Friday.
Since Friday was the deadline for a first reading vote, the bill is officially dead.
The measure would have made it illegal for any Wyoming law officer to enforce any new federal gun restrictions, including an assault weapons ban or a limit on the number of rounds in an ammunition clip. The most controversial provision, which would have made it a felony for federal agents to enforce new laws, was stricken from the bill earlier this week.
The bill was sponsored by Representative Kendell Kroeker from Evansville.
