    New Wyoming Gun Law – Jail Terms for Feds
    Executive Summary – Wyoming passed a new gun law similar to Tennessee and Montana. The Firearms Freedom Act. This law states that any gun made, sold and kept within the State of Wyoming is not subject to Federal Gun Control Laws. This means no registration. Wyoming did however go further that the other states. They said that any State or Federal Official who tries to enforce any federal firearm law regarding a firearm made, sold and kept in Wyoming could face a $2000 fine and two years in prison. See how the law reads:

    “A personal firearm, a firearm action or receiver, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in the state to be used or sold within the state is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce.” (Note the federal government was never given the right to interfere with or regulate intrastate commerce (within a given state).

    “Any official, agent or employee of the United States government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Wyoming and that remains exclusively within the borders of Wyoming shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, shall be subject to imprisonment for not more than two (2) years, a fine of not more than ten thousand dollars ($2,000.00), or both.” (Please note if a federal agent was convicted of this law it would make him or her a felon and thus they could not own firearms and would be ineligible to hold a federal law enforcement position. And face firing and loss of pension. Of course if they ignore Wyoming convictions under this law then Wyoming may ignore all federal arrest warrants they felt to be inconsistent with the constitution like tax cases.)

    When this all started it was in Montana, and the way it was written NFA type weapons would not be included, owning all you want is fine you just gotta play the game, now I wonder if say a MT gun smith built say an m-16 for use only in MT if just paying the $200.00 transfer tax would work? says the Fed has no say in MT affairs concerning made in MT guns, so... should the $200.00 be paid to the US Gov or to the State Gov?....

    Wonder why this argument hasn't come up before...

    Owning a full auto is fine in MT, I've owned a bunch and have friends that own a lot of them,so...having said...why wouldn't a Made in MT full auto be ok as long as the same rules to ownership applied on a state level...I know they wrote in the exception to FA ..but...?
