The Senate voted today to send Gov. Tony Evers a bill that would prohibit Wisconsin law enforcement from enforcing certain future federal gun laws.

AB 293, concurred in through a voice vote, would prohibit enforcing federal laws that take effect on or after Jan. 1 this year if they ban or restrict assault weapons or magazines, or if they require registration of firearms, magazines or other firearm accessories, among other things.

It would also prohibit any state or local agency from spending money or using other resources to confiscate lawfully possessed firearms.

Also under the bill, Wisconsin-made firearms would bear a “Made in Wisconsin” stamp going forward. The bill would exempt any gun, accessory or ammunition manufactured or owned in Wisconsin from federal regulation banning or limiting their use.
