States Pass Bills Stopping Gun Control After Obama’s Threats of ‘Executive Action’

Earlier this week, two states passed bills that would block enforcement of future federal gun control measures. Montana and Arizona passed similar measures to nullify federal gun laws and prohibit state agencies and employees from assisting federal agencies from enforcing unlawful and unconstitutional gun laws.

In Montana, Rep. Art Wittich introduced House Bill 203 (HB203) which would prohibit the state “from enforcing, assisting in the enforcement of or otherwise cooperating in the enforcement of a federal act enacted on or after Jan. 1, 2015 that “prohibits, restricts, or requires individual licensure for ownership, possession, transfer, or use of any firearm or any magazine or other ammunition feeding device.”

Wittich’s bill passed the House last month by a vote of 58-42. This week it passed the Senate with a vote of 27-22. The bill now heads to the governor’s desk for his signature. If he fails to either sign or veto the bill within 10 days, it becomes law.
