Wisconsin (WAOW) -- State Senator Mary Felzkowski, a Republican lawmaker out of Tomahawk, is authoring legislation that would make Wisconsin a Second Amendment sanctuary state.

According to a release, the bill would prevent the federal government from confiscating firearms or ammunition which are legally owned and made in Wisconsin.

This comes on the same day President Joe Biden announced executive action on gun reform.

“Today, we witnessed a blatant overreach and attack on our second amendment rights. The sitting president of the United States of America signed six executive orders aimed at stripping millions of legal gun owners across the country of their sacred, unalienable rights," said Felzkowski.

The bill would also keep state public fundsand state employees from helping confiscate legally owned firearms protected by the Second Amendment.

“It’s been said time and again – our Second Amendment right to bear arms is the only thing protecting the American people from an overreaching government. Our Constitution is set in stone. You don’t get to pick and choose which sections you adhere to and respect based off of a political agenda, and this bill makes that crystal clear," said Felzkowski.
