If Tennessee state Rep. Joe Carr has his way, federal agents who seek to enforce new gun control measures in the state could wind up in handcuffs. 

From the Murfreesboro Daily News Journal:

Carr, a Lascassas Republican, is sponsoring legislation that would charge federal agents with a Class A misdemeanor for enforcing or attempting to enforce a federal law or executive order that bans, restricts or requires registration of any semiautomatic gun, accessory or ammunition.

“I think people … should be able to defend themselves from tyranny,” Carr said during a press conference.
