#1 Better be selective in whom they arrest. A charge of racism trumps nearly everything these days. Call Sheriff Joe for further information.

#2 Just use the political tools of the Left. Declare their state a 'Sanctuary' State for gun owners. If its OK for illegals....

#3 The Wyoming Constitution explicitly states that the US Constitution is thE Supreme Law.
Interesting little clause in the contract so to speak.
P2K IMHO hits on the subject; it isn't laws like this which will cause a splinter, it is the selective enforcement of already current laws which will.

#4 I'm hoping for legally permitted, Second Amendment parades in orderly route step. My preference would be to precede 4H Clubs and horses, but I am flexible. Further details not required.

#5 Not clear at all that it is patently unconstitutional if one considers that the law the federal employee is enforcing could be construed to be unconstitutional. Remember the CIA officers who "tortured" were subject to criminal investigation. By the federal government, to be sure, but the precedent was established. The Constitution is the supreme law but it does not give the federal government unlimited powers and recognizes state sovereignty.

#6 Do people understand that it is SOP for courts not to rule on Constitutional issues by claiming lack of standing? That is why this approach is so brilliant. It forces the courts to hear the case -- something they would otherwise do their very best to avoid.
Also, Nimble is correct. There is nothing patently unconstitutional about changing federal employees with state crimes.
