PHOENIX - A law that says you don't have to obey the law?
Arizona lawmakers are taking aim at President Obama's gun control policies with a new bill.
"It's basically thanks but no thanks to the Federal Government for things that infringe on our 2nd Amendment rights" said co-sponsor of the bill Rep. Steve Smith.
President Obama knows state laws can't override federal laws but thinks it might be enough to force any stricter gun laws to court.
"When if so obviously goes against what our citizens want the states are compelled to take these steps and I think it's up for discussion."
HB 2291 would protect Arizona gun owners from new federal laws restricting guns.
The bill would make it a felony for federal government employees to enforce new federal laws or regulations on guns, accessories and ammunition owned of manufactured in our state.
The bill would also make Arizona exempt from any new federal restrictions on semi-automatic firearms and magazines and new registration rules.
