The Kansas legislature will consider a firearms freedom act during its 2012 session.
HB2421 declares that, “a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Kansas and that remains within the borders of Kansas is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce.”
Rep. Connie O’Brien (R – Tonganoxie) and Rep. Jana Goodman (R – Leavenworth) introduced the bill on Jan. 9.
HB2421 would also make it a criminal offense (severity level 10 nonperson felony) for any agent of the United States government to attempt to enforce any federal regulation upon a firearm or ammunition covered under that act.
The bill rests on the foundation of the Tenth Amendment, correctly asserting that regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the states.Details
