Missouri House Passes Law That Nullifies Violations of the 2nd Amendment


Missouri’s House has passed new legislation by a 117-43 vote that says, “federal official(s) must not enforce a federal firearm law when the firearm is manufactured and remains in the state and that any new federal law banning or restricting ownership of a semi-automatic firearm is unenforceable.”

In other words, new federal gun legislation would be null and void in the state and any federal agent who attempts to enforce it could face jail time in the state.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Casey Guernsey (R-Bethany) said,

“The Second Amendment says we have the right to keep and bear arms. Whenever the federal government or President Obama takes any measure on gun control, they are taking that right away.”

So, is it time for 2nd Amendment enthusiasts to move to Missouri?

Well, not quite.

The bill has passed the House, but it still would need to pass the Senate and be signed by Democrat Governor Jay Nixon.

Even if that were to pass, traditionally nullification bills that assert state rights against the federal government haven’t fared well in the Supreme Court.

Still, congratulations to the Missouri House for doing the right thing and trying to protect the interests of that state against a paternalistic government that keeps sticking its nose where it doesn’t belong.
