Last week I reported on the fact that Tennessee made the move to nullify all federal gun laws by introducing new legislation. Now West Virginia is following suit with their version of the “Firearm Protection Act.”
HB2832 was introduced by Cindy Frich (R), along with five co-sponsors. According to the bill, it prohibits all state public servants from enforcing “act, law, statute, rule or regulation of the United States Government relating to a personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition,” as long as the item remains “exclusively within the borders of West Virginia.”
The bill would ban enforcement of any federal legislation which would seek to:
- Ban or restrict ownership of a semiautomatic firearm or any magazine of a firearm; or
- Require any firearm, magazine or other firearm accessory to be registered in any manner.
According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, legislation such as HB2832 would make federal gun laws “nearly impossible to enforce.”
