An Indiana bill would set the foundation to end state enforcement of federal gun control, an important first step to nullify it in practice within the state.
Rep. Chris Judy (R-Dist. 83) introduced House Bill 1051 (HB1051) on Jan. 4. The legislation would prohibit state agencies or political subdivisions, along with their employees, from participating in any way in the enforcement of “a federal act, law, order, rule or, regulation enacted or promulgated after January 1, 2017, regarding personal firearms, firearm accessory, or ammunition.”
The bill would also prohibit the use of any assets, state funds or funds allocated by the state to a political subdivision for the enforcement of such gun laws.
This would effectively withdraw all state cooperation from the implementation or enforcement of future federal gun laws, an effective method to nullify them in practice.
