It appears Oregon and Texas are considering the same idea:

Published January 15, 2013

FoxNews.com

State officials in Oregon and Texas are vowing to fight back against any attempt by the federal government to impose new gun control laws. 

The warnings come as President Obama prepares to unveil a "comprehensive" plan to address gun violence, based on the recommendations from the Vice President Biden-led task force. The plan is expected to include a call for legislation to ban assault weapons as well as a variety of executive actions. 

But in Oregon, Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller wrote a letter to Biden Monday saying his department will not enforce any new gun laws it considers unconstitutional. 

Mueller said politicians are "attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims" by supporting laws that would harm law-abiding Americans. The sheriff said he took an oath to support the Constitution, and laws preventing citizens from owning certain semi-automatic firearms and ammunition magazines would violate their rights. 

"We are Americans," Mueller wrote. "We must not allow, nor shall we tolerate, the actions of criminals, no matter how heinous the crimes, to prompt politicians to enact laws that will infringe upon the liberties of responsible citizens who have broken no laws." 

Meanwhile, 1200 WOAI reports that in Texas, Republican state Rep. Steve Toth plans to introduce a bill that would make it illegal to enforce in the state any federal laws restricting semi-automatic firearms or the size of gun magazines. 

Toth told 1200 WOAI that the bill would also call for felony charges to be brought against federal officials who attempt to enforce any such rules. 

"If a federal official comes into the state of Texas to enforce the federal executive order, that person is subject to criminal prosecution," Toth told 1200 WOAI. 

The warnings could be the first wave of state officials pushing back against Congress and the White House as they take up new gun control measures in the wake of the Connecticut mass shooting. Obama and others say new rules to at least limit the size of high-capacity magazines are overdue and could save lives. 

Mueller, though, told The Associated Press in a phone interview from Albany, Ore., that he felt compelled to make his views known because sheriffs have not had much of a say on the vice president's anti-gun violence task force. Mueller said his constituents have been repeatedly asking his deputies about what will happen if new gun restrictions are adopted. 

"We're restricted and prohibited from enforcing all types of federal laws, including immigration laws," he said Tuesday. "It would be unreasonable for anyone to think that I would enforce a federal firearms law." 

Mueller said some other sheriffs expressed support for his stance, but he does not know of any who have pledged to take similar action in regard to potential gun laws. 

Linn County is largely rural and politically conservative. Fewer than 40 percent of its registered voters supported President Barack Obama in November. Mueller said most households in the county have guns. 

Though the letter might add fuel to an already hot topic, Mueller said he wishes people could have a civilized discussion about the issue, rather than resort to threats and name-calling. He said he doesn't think the vice president is a bad person; he just doesn't like the path he appears to be on regarding gun laws.

Just for the record, I do vehemently disagree with Sherriff Tim Mueller on one aspect of this...

I DO "think the vice president is a bad person." A very bad person... and if he ever visited me, we would most decidedly NOT "have a good conversation."

The tip of the iceberg. This assault on the 2nd Amendment must be met head on...with a hearty vigor.

Joe Biden is a SNAKE. He slipped the 1986 machinegun ban into the McClurer Volkmer Firearms Protection Act. While the pro-gun provisions of the bill have had little effect, the machinegun ban layed the foundation for the assault weapon bans. The anti-gunners realized that with so few machine gun owners, they had little voice or support from the Congress or the public. With no visible crime problem the anti-gunners stated that they would make military look-a-like semi-automatic rifles their next target. They figured this was the next smallest group of gun owners that they could defeat with legislation. It wasn't long before there were a couple of high profile shootings involving semi-automatic AK 47s, and the anti-gunners started their campaign against "ASSAULT WEAPONS". Guess who wrote the 1994 Assault Weapom Ban. Why Joe Biden of course.
 
Now just to put a little perspective into the urgency of a ban on full automatic weapons; since the enactment of the 1934 National Firearms Act, that regulates the sale and transfer of these weapons, there has been a grand total of 1 violent crime commited with a legally owned machinegun. That was the murder of a drug dealer by a police officer who's family had been threatened by the drug dealer; and that occured after the 1986 ban on the manufacture of new machineguns.
 
Now think about where they are going. With machineguns they photographed, finger printed, had the Chief Law Enfocement Officer of the county sign the application, made you pay a $200.00 tax (think what that was in 1934 dollars), registered, and go through a background check that could last 30 days to year before you were approved to take possession of your machinegun. Now they want to do the same thing with semi-automatic rifles, pistols, and the magazines they use.
 
With machineguns they created the most law abiding group of gun owners, then rewarded them by stopping the supply and making them so expensive through supply and demand that only the wealthy can own them now. What do you think they are trying to do with your guns?
 
With a law that made the best arguement for the anti-gunners registration of guns, the Government made the law the pro-gunners best argument against registration. Registration always proceeds confiscation.

this is not a new law for wyoming, it was started during the clinton admin. It was meant to attract gun manufacturers. (Freedom arms, Casull) among other things. Montana has a similar law. It was then and is still interesting that this law was not challenged by the Fed. government. Perhaps they didn't want a legal fight or bush came into the office, or perhaps they knew judges in the state would throw out any cases the feds brought based on the law. 
No convictions have been made anywhere from the traceablity of registration guns. This is the same arguement that keeps coming up every round of gun control . 
the anti gun group say 40 % of gun sales go thru some type of private transaction. Lets see if Ruger sold 300000, ,S&W sells a million, etc. and thats only 60% then the total transactions the total number of guns sold in the US would be in the 10 mil. I don't believe the 40% figure and it would be nice to see the media called on this bs. I could believe 40% of the gun transactiion in NYC may be private sales. But then who gives a sh*t.

stand offs between fed officials and local leo are more common in the west. personally watched a stand off between Fed marshalls and carbon county sheriff around the price ut area. the topic-- a cactus, on the extension list vs. private property rights. . oh the feds lost---the toss.

Seems that I heard that 40% figure above was taken from one study (of about 250 + or - ) transactions several years ago during Slick Willie's term. In other words, it's not particularly viable. The Libbies lite to cite it to enforce their BS message.

The most aggravating part of this is our own government forced our gun dealers to sell gun illegally to the mexican drug cartels.  I bet we cannot even count how many murders those guns will be used for.

 
All for some end game.  That is what scares me so much about all this.  They will kill anyone they want and they could care less.  These people are pure evil.

Well, if we had won this last election, we would have found out some stuff and thrown Holder in jail ( maybe! )........but now it's all gone with the wind and it's On With The Show assaulting the Constitution and Americans. 
 
 
I feel sorry for the normal people who live in states that are part of this Leftie takeover.  We live in two Americas.
