Wisconsin secedes! OK that's an exaggeration, but ...

Assembly passes 'Second Amendment sanctuary' bill that would bar enforcement of federal gun restrictions
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

MADISON - Wisconsin gun owners would not be subject to federal firearm laws under legislation passed by Republicans and one Democrat in the state Assembly on Wednesday.

The bill, which also requires Wisconsin gun manufacturers to include a "Made in Wisconsin" stamp on their firearms, is part of a national effort by Republican lawmakers to push back against new gun restrictions that could be imposed by a Democratic-controlled Congress and President Joe Biden.

But the idea has been deemed unconstitutional in the past in other states because state law cannot override conflicting federal law under the U.S. Constitution.

Rep. Tip McGuire, D-Kenosha, said the legislation is inferior to the Second Amendment and "in fact undermines the Constitution that we all swore an oath to uphold."

According to a nonpartisan analysis by the Legislature's legal staff provided to McGuire, the legislation if enacted would bar law enforcement from confiscating firearms from people who have been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence because there is no state law allowing it.

...


Note the domestic violence tie in.

1. MAGA types are mad as hell they cant do violence against anyone they want.

For the longest time these types could and did do violence against anyone and everyone and of course it was legal.
It still is sort of, but once in a while they have to pay the price legally.

Anyway, they are gonna do so much violence and so soon.

2. Missouri just passed a similar law, and it's already being challenged in court.

These laws won't withstand court challenges because federal law supersedes state law purporting to regulate the same things; they are entirely performative. But they require the expenditure of taxpayers' money to defend them, which is infuriating.
