Below is some information from Ron Calzone on the Second Amendment Preservation Act.
Our legislators need to hear that we are the Show Me State, and they need to “Show Me” that they support freedom:
The Kansas Senate passed the “Second Amendment Protection Act”, SB 102 (35 to 4) and in the House the identical HB 2199 (96 to 24). In Kansas, that means all that’s left is the signature of pro-gun Governor Sam Brownback.
Like Missouri’s HB 436 and SB 325, the Kansas bill is careful to lay out a principled, constitutional argument in a declaratory statement which cites the 9th and 10th as well as the 2nd Amendment.
Does the Missouri General Assembly have the guts to take bold action, like Kansas? The slow movement of our own Second Amendment Preservation Act indicates maybe it doesn’t, but perhaps our neighbors to the west will be a source of encouragement!
Sam Brownback isn’t our governor, so the Missouri General Assembly would be wise to pass HB 436 or SB 325 with plenty of time to override a veto during this legislative session.
|Here are two things you can do RIGHT NOW:
Details about HB 436 & SB 325
Since the 10th Amendment makes it clear that all powers not granted to the federal government are reserved to the states and the People, the regulation of the ownership of arms is a state, not a federal matter.
That applies to ALL such regulation.
Rep. Doug Funderburk and Sen. Brian Nieves’ “Second Amendment Preservation Act” is the strongest and most principled protection of the right to keep and bear arms in the nation!.
Notice that it utilizes the words of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison to explain Missouri’s authority to nullify unconstitutional federal edicts within her borders. Including this language is essential to the success of the bill. It also specifically lists the types of things we will not put up with, and that’s what gives state officials the “cover” they need to enforce the bill.
