According to The Sentinel a upcoming vote by Missouri’s state senate, It is expected to pass a bill that would nullify ALL Federal gun laws, and make enforcement of those laws within the State of Missouri a criminal offense!
Bill SB367 and it’s counterpart, House Bill HB786, would stop 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.
Missouri Senate Bill 367 reads
1.430. 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 unlike most bills passed by the anti gun crowd this bill reads quite clearly and makes its intentions very clear as to prevent any confusion. The bill goes so far as to even target the Unconstitutional redflag laws!
(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
Heres the Teeth of the bill!
Any person while acting as an official, agent, employee, or deputy of the government of the United States, or while otherwise acting under the color of federal law while within the borders of this state, who knowingly, as defined under section 562.016:
(1) Enforces or attempts to enforce any of the infringements identified in section 1.410; or
(2) Gives material aid and support to the efforts of others who enforce or attempt to enforce any of the infringements identified in section 1.410;
shall be permanently ineligible to serve as a law enforcement officer or to supervise law enforcement officers for the state or any political subdivision of the state.
Basically any Federal agent who tries to enforce the Nullified laws in Missouri will have criminal charges pressed on them! Hopefully the Governor signs this one into law and paves the way for ending gun control once and for all!
