Ariz. Senate Panel Passes Bill Barring Enforcement Of Federal Gun Measures
WNEW CBS DC ^ | 01-31-2013 | WNEW CBS DC

Posted on 01/31/2013 11:13:12 AM PST by AZ .44 MAG

The bill co-sponsored by state Sen. Don Shooter, four other senators and several members of the House of Representatives would bar enforcement of new federal laws affecting semi-automatic firearms or high-capacity magazines. It also makes any federal official trying to enforce such laws guilty of a felony and allows the state Attorney General to defend anyone prosecuted for violating federal gun laws if the gun was made in Arizona, among other provisions.

Good news from AZ. It's not law yet but I think it has a very good chance to pass.

I particularly like that the name of one sponsor is Don Shooter.

This is very good, since it was the federal government that said a state, in this case, AZ, could NOT enforce immigration laws, since it's a federal law, why should Arizona enforce ANY federal law or regulation?

I don’t even know who my Arizona reps are because normally they are not part of the problem. I shall have to find out who they are now that they are part of the solution!

Why is it just limited to new gun laws?

Agreed.

The 10th Amendment may be the only way to rein in Fedzilla.

I like the way they think in AZ, it kind of reminds me of TX, but not as big.

The Colorado GOP are sending gun bill after gun bill as a tactic painting the Dems as ant-2nd Amendment. And we see the CO Dems anti-2nd amendment bills have not even made it to committee.

Colorado GOP bill would nullify possible federal gun limits

Yes, I think this is the way to go that would be the only route to success.

As individuals, what are we going to do?
We can’t resist federal law effectively,
but a state can declare a non-enforcement zone,
further, they can threaten action against any attempts to enforce,
and if push comes to shove, the people of the state(s) will rally behind the state gov’t and law enforcement against the feds.

It goes beyond just not not enforcing Federal laws.

From the article:

"It also makes any federal official trying to enforce such laws guilty of a felony and allows the state Attorney General to defend anyone prosecuted for violating federal gun laws if the gun was made in Arizona, among other provisions."

Great news! Now, like OH is attempting, voter ID legislation.

I would have loved to have been there to see all the wailing and gnashing of teeth when this was passed. Especially since it was passed after Saint Gabby spoke in DC. When they passed constitutional carry not long after she was shot all the Dems were crying and saying “How could you”. Very easy in AZ appearently, and we are about to do it again.

That is really good news. We also have quite a few CO sheriffs who have made statements that they would not enforce un-Constitutional Federal gun laws.

“It looks as though my LC9 is covered.”

There are a few others in AZ besides Ruger. Offhand the only one I can think of is American Spirit Arms. http://americanspiritarms.com/

I’d like to hear about any others FReepers may know about.

I bet real folding money that if this manages to pass both houses, Brewer’s going to veto it. She’s not pandering to conservatives anymore. The good stuff stopped the instant she sewed up her nomination last time, and she may not run again so screw us.

Of course the courts got ahold of it and we won't know until the Obamacare-upholding SCOTUS hears it whether it will stand or not.

The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to consider whether Arizona can demand that voters show proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote in federal elections

Our Sheriff gets it right on quite a few things.

This is one of them— http://www.sheriffpaul.com/letter-to-president-obama/

Unfortunately he’s not real clear on how male and female parts are designed to use together.

State Senate leader Morse -Dim, keeps on making excuses why they have not. The problems is becoming apparent that they are having a hard time getting their own D party members to go along. I've read from others that a few Dim state assemblymen ( being quite publicly ) are going to vote against their party anti-2nd Amendment bills.

They are not going to win by turning Colorado into New York state of the Rockies.

That is really good news. We also have quite a few CO sheriffs who have made statements that they would not enforce un-Constitutional Federal gun laws.

Wednesday’s Senate Public Safety Committee debate pitted minority Democrats who believe the bill is unconstitutional...

All of a sudden, Democrats have discovered the Constitution. :)

That’s a great letter. He spells out the bottom line very well. As for his personal confusions; as long as it doesn’t affect his duties as a sheriff he’ll have to sort that out himself on his own time. I see he was re-elected.

Yes, my sheriff signed onto that memo which eased my mind a lot. I was a little worried when I heard Chickenpooper was going to push gun control. I know we have a lot of Dems in office here and in the past CO Pubbies have not been terribly effective.

I voted for him. He doesn’t make a big deal of his disorientation. He also kicked photo radar out of the county in places he has ultimate jurisdiction.

Most people I talk to see it as a humorous side issue. Kind of a Jose - hose “B” thing.

I should have mentioned that the guy he was reportedly involved with is named Jose.

His lover's name or not I guess that would be the way the joke goes in the southwest. LOL

I read about his little peccadillo when that came around. I was also already aware that he puts himself in harms way in a big way to deal with the problem in his county with cartel thugs. A lot of people may not get how bad that situation is but I do. That's a big territory and really harsh. Lots of cover for some extremely bad men.

Great letter - I'm posting it here. The Sheriff uses the unlawful Fast & Furious operation against the unlawful Obama Administration. Heh. :-)

I think that's a big part of why he was reelected.

Pinal county is pretty big and largely rural or wilderness. it doesn't abut the Mexican border but a lot of drug traffic goes through it.

I live in Pinal County and own some vacant land there that I occasionally find evidence of illegals passing over.

Good info. Thanks! But let us use the same crap on the Rats that they use on us. Ignore the fed ruling, enforce it statewide, and arrest any feds who dare come in to stop it.
