Missouri Moves to Nullify ALL Federal Gun-Control Laws In the State

Missouri

This is not Missouri’s first rodeo with nullifying federal anti-gun laws. Back in 2014, they tried it. We didn’t follow up – turns out that then-Gov. Nixon vetoed that one (wait, we did). But it’s back. If it became law it “would prevent all state agencies and their employees from enforcing any federal law that infringes the Second Amendment in any way, including gun registrations, fees, fines, licenses and bans. “

“All federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations, whether past, present, or future, which infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States I and Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution shall be invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, shall be specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”

And like last time failure to comply comes with criminal penalties so to make sure everyone understands what that means it’s enumerated, care of RedState.

(a) Any tax, levy, fee, or stamp imposed on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(b) Any registering or tracking of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(c) Any registering or tracking of the owners of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(d) Any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens; and

(e) Any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens

It still needs to pass the State House and the governor needs to sign it into law. Then we get the lawsuits and challenges and a long slow march to the US Supreme Court. But it looks like the real deal.

You’ve got a little drool on your chin. You might want to wipe that off.
