Skip to comments.Federal agents would face arrest under Alaska gun bill

House Speaker Mike Chenault says federal law enforcement officers should be arrested in Alaska if they attempt to enforce any future federal law banning personal possession of assault rifles or large ammunition clips or if they attempt to register any Alaska firearm.
On Wednesday, just as President Obama was announcing new firearm-control initiatives in the aftermath of the child murders at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., Chenault offered his countermeasure in House Bill 69.
His bill would extend the reach of a law passed in 2010 by asserting that any firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition possessed by anyone in Alaska was not subject to federal law. The 2010 law only covered firearms and ammo manufactured in Alaska and it already was of dubious constitutional validity, though it's never been challenged because no firearm is known to have been manufactured here since then.
In addition to adding the word "possession" to the 2010 law, Chenault's bill declares that any "federal statute, regulation, rule or order" taking effect after passage of House Bill 69 would be invalid in Alaska if it restricted semi-automatic firearms or magazines. The bill also declares invalid any future registration scheme involving firearms, magazines or other firearm accessory.
Any federal agent who attempted to enforce those future federal laws would be subject to prosecution by the state on misdemeanor charges.

I see this all ending up in a citizen’s arrest episode one day...kind of like the episode on Andy Griffith. After a couple of these citizen’s arrest episodes...no federal agent will travel alone, and will usually be four guys in every episode.
Nothing good of this can come...it just draws people to get deeper drawn into an executive federal mess.
The good does not come from confrontations between federal agents and patriotic local law enforcement officers. The good comes from politicians seeing where this can lead and backing down before we get into a second civil war. Once the far left realizes how many ordinary decent people will be cheering (or more) for those who side with the Constitution and not for those who initiate violence against peaceful Americans, the gun-grabbers are likely to back off without crossing that line, at least for now.
Tell that to our Founding Fathers and all the patriots who fought and died against such tyranny to create the worlds best country.
It is now up to us to preserve what they fought and died so hard for.
The bill would get the feds arrested?
Funny, somehow I sure don’t see anything wrong with that...
Bears gotta eat ... same as worms.
All these bills are just so much show, so long as state governments are reliant on federal grants to operate.
