    Imagine a state law that says that any federal agent that comes into said state and runs afoul of a new state law should be considered a felon! Well, that is what New Hampshire is about to do if HB1285(1) passes during the coming 2010 legislative session.

    I think every state already has those laws. This new law in NH is another restriction to be added to the list that is already there.

    Each state has it's own code of criminal procedure or rules of procedure. Inside, you will find an explanation of what a federal agent can/cannot do in that state. Most states give feds 'limited police powers'.

    I like it. The big "but" is that the firearm must be manufactured in New Hampshire. They need to go a step further and state that they will allow no federal interference in the private ownership of firearms in New Hampshire...no matter where they are manufactured.

    Seems to me a state could clearly prove that federal interference with a citizen's gun rights in that state infringes on that states militia (which by definition is armed citizens not members of the organized and federally controlled armed forces).

    If a firearm crosses state lines then the feds can claim interstate commerce and come up with "reasonable regulation". NH has Ruger revolvers, Sig Arms, and Thompson Center (now Smith and Wesson) so it's not an insignificant law although if you cross state lines you could have a problem.
