The Wisconsin Senate passed a bill on Wednesday that would make Badger State a "Second Amendment Sanctuary."
Assembly Bill 293 was passed by vote.
It aims to provide "restrictions on the enforcement of federal laws regulating firearms, firearms accessories and ammunition (and) the use of public funds to seize firearms".
A firearm made or owned in the state of Wisconsin that does not leave the state would not be subject to federal regulation under the law.
The law appears to cite the beginning of the Biden presidency as a factor stating the prohibition on enforcing “any federal statute, statute, statute, rule, ordinance, contract, or ordinance on or after January 1 Comes into force in 2021 ".
These federal laws would include anything that "prohibits or restricts semi-automatic firearms, assault weapons, or magazines," "requires"
Registration of firearms … regulates the capacity of magazines "or" regulates the amount of ammunition or bullets a person can use ".
The bill is unlikely to be signed by Democratic Governor Tony Evers, who has pushed for more gun regulations rather than less.
The law aims to exempt firearms from federal gun laws and regulations in Wisconsin. Similar measures have been found unconstitutional elsewhere. Https://t.co/34G1WZAxis

Wisconsin is trying to follow other states by becoming the second change sanctuary
The Wisconsin State Senate, which seeks to transform its state into a sanctuary of the second amendment, is following the lead of other Republican-led states who have successfully done the same.
In April, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R) signed a law protecting gun owners in the state from other federal gun control laws.
The bill, said Ducey, was meant to be “a proactive law for what can come out of the Biden administration”.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced Arizona efforts and said he "seeks" also to get Texas "a law that will oppose all new federal gun control laws."
"It will make Texas a second amendment sanctuary state," he tweeted.
In May, the Texas Senate tabled a bill that would allow Texans to carry a handgun without any form of license. It was signed by Abbott and will come into effect in September. This makes Texas the largest state to allow unlicensed wear – what supporters refer to as "constitutional wear."
The Texas Senate has passed bill that would remove the requirement to acquire a license to carry a handgun unless state or federal law prohibits them from possessing a weapon. https://t.co/yyVnKRB6GB

Biden's controversial comments on the second amendment
All of this comes against the background that Biden made highly controversial remarks about supporters of the second amendment in a gun control speech on Wednesday.
"If you wanted to, or believe, that you need guns to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons," scoffed Biden.
Yes, @POTUS, the authors of the second amendment – fresh to the fight against a revolution – and wrote about it being "necessary for the security of a free state," thought about defending against kevlar-bearing deer. https://t.co/g4MF9I3cqn

"From the day it was passed, the Second Amendment restricted the types of people who could own a weapon and what kind of weapon one could own," the president continued. "You couldn't buy a cannon."
Biden made similar remarks in April calling for a ban on "assault weapons" and "high-capacity magazines", insisting that "no constitutional change is absolute".
BIDEN: “Nothing I am going to recommend affects the second amendment in any way … No amendment to the constitution is absolute. You can't shout "fire in a crowded movie theater" and call it free speech. Right from the start, you couldn't own a weapon that you wanted to own. ”Pic.twitter.com/4dChTPgmQm

President Biden has nominated David Chipman as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), a man who has advocated a "well-regulated" second amendment.
Chipman made a disastrous appearance in the Senate last month, fighting to define an "offensive weapon" and saying he supported a ban on AR-15.
MP Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced a law that would abolish the ATF "to protect ALL gun owners across the country from a tyrannical, power-hungry group of bureaucrats whose aim is to uphold our rights under the Second Amendment to destroy".
The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee split along the party lines on Thursday to advance Chipman's nomination.
