Unhinged Arizona: Republicans Propose 'Gun Secession' Bill



The Daily Banter Headline Grab. From TPM:

A group of Republicans in the Arizona House of Representatives are pushing a bill that would limit federal gun laws’ reach into the state.

The bill, known as HB 2291, would, among other things, make it a Class 6 felony for a federal government employee or official to enforce federal laws or regulations of firearms, accessories, and ammunition that are owned or manufactured within state lines and remain within state lines.

The bill would also make any new federal laws restricting semi-automatic firearms and magazines, or requiring any form of firearm registration, unenforceable in Arizona.

Among the bill’s sponsors is state Rep. Carl Seel (R), who previously made headlines as the author of a 2011 birther bill.
