Bill Would Make Federal Gun Ban Unenforceable

February 5, 2013, 8:23 AM by Austin Hoffman

Bill Would Make Federal Gun Ban Unenforceable
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A federal firearms ban that’s making its way through Washington, D.C., is looking to ban assault-style weapons and clips that can hold more than 10 rounds.
    
But a bill in Pierre might make that ban pointless in our state. 

Since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, gun control has been one of the hottest topics across the country. And with a Federal Firearms ban floating around Washington, some South Dakota legislators are saying, 'Not here.'

House Bill 1222 would make any federal law banning firearms or magazines unenforceable in South Dakota.

The bill would actually make it a class 6 felony with a minimum of one year in prison for any employee of the U.S. government who enforces a firearm ban on any guns or ammo made and sold within South Dakota.
    
It would also give South Dakota citizens defense from the states attorney general if they were prosecuted by the U.S. government because of a possible federal ban.

The bill is currently waiting action in the House State Affairs committee.
