Wyoming State Representative David Miller has introduced a “Firearms Freedom Act” for the state – it’s filed as House Bill 28 (HB28).
If passed, the will would provide “that specified firearms that are manufactured, sold, purchased, possessed and used exclusively within Wyoming shall be exempt from federal regulation, including registration requirements”
Wyoming’s bill brings the number to 14 states that have seen a Firearms Freedom Act introduced in the past year – most recently, New Hampshire, Virginia and Missouri.
Already, Tennessee and Montana have passed a version of the Firearms Freedom Act into law. The Montana Shooting Sports Association (MTSSA) and the 2nd Amendment Foundation (SAF) have filed a federal lawsuit to validate the principles of the law.
Sources close to the Tenth Amendment Center tell us to expect to see nearly two dozen states consider similar legislation in the coming legislative session.
