The following article, Missouri Enacts New Law Banning Federal Gun Control Rules, was first published on Flag And Cross.
The state of Missouri has enacted a law that would bar federal authorities from entering the state to enforce federal gun bans or other gun control measures that don’t emanate from the state legislature.
Gov. Mike Parson (R) signed legislation on Saturday to head off proposals by the Biden administration.
According to WLBT, HB 85, the “Second Amendment Preservation Act, prohibits the enforcement of federal gun laws by local law enforcement agencies.”
As he signed the bill, Gov. Parson said:
Throughout my law enforcement career and now as Governor of the state of Missouri, I have and always will stand for the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights. This legislation today draws a line in the sand and demonstrates our commitment to reject any attempt by the federal government to circumvent the fundamental right Missourians have to keep and bear arms to protect themselves and their property.
“HB 85 puts those in Washington D.C. on notice that here in Missouri we support responsible, law-abiding gun owners, and that we oppose government overreach and any unlawful efforts to limit our access to firearms,” the gov. added.
The legislation passed both houses of the state legislature by a handy margin.
Missouri is not the only state to begin looking for ways to prevent federal operatives from attempting to enforce anti-Second Amendment measures that are not popular among their own voters.
Other states include Idaho, Nebraska, and Arizona.
