Bill draft would keep local law enforcement from enforcing more restrictive federal gun laws
Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck, says he’s reviving a Bill that would keep local and state law enforcement from enforcing federal gun laws that are more restrictive than the state’s laws.
Becker says he wants to protect the people’s second amendment rights and the 10th amendment right for state sovereignty. He adds there’s no intent in this Bill to be a detriment to law enforcement.
“It doesn’t prevent federal law enforcement from enforcing those laws. It just says to respect the sovereignty of our state, we don’t agree with those law, we’re not going to enforce them,” said Becker.
