MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin law enforcement officers would not be able to enforce federal gun restrictions, under a state bill proposed by a Republican lawmaker.

Oshkosh Representative Michael Schraa is a member of the National Rifle Association. He’s asking his colleagues to co-sponsor his bill.

Despite limiting enforcement of federal gun bans, the bill would declare that weapons made in Wisconsin have not engaged in Interstate commerce – and therefore, they’re not covered under federal commerce laws.

Schraa says his bill would send a message to Washington that the Badger state would not curtail gun rights.

Eight other states have passed similar laws protecting weapons made within their borders.
