Republican Representative Steve Drazkowski has authored a bill that would make any new federal regulations on Minnesota gunowners unenforceable in the state.
Joining Drazkowski in introducing the measure on Thursday was fellow Republican Greg Davids of Preston who says many law enforcement leaders are also against new gun control measures that would affect existing second amendment rights.
The measure says any agent who attempted to enforce any new federal anti-gun laws in Minnesota would face a felony charge with punishment up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
Meanwhile, after three days of debate in the House on several Democratic gun control bills this week, Davids says he believes there is enough opposition to prevent them from passing the House. Votes on the bills are expected later in the session.
