Missouri House Passes ‘Emergency’ Bill to Nullify Federal Gun Laws

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)-  On April 3rd 2013 the Missouri House passed an “emergency” bill to nullify “virtually every federal gun control measure in the books.”

The bill – HB1439 – drew a supermajority of support, 110-36.

According to the Tenth Amendment Center, the bill borrows language from Thomas Jefferson to reject “unlimited submission” to the federal government.

Claiming Tenth Amendment ground, the bill states, “Whenever the federal government assumes powers that the people did not grant it in the Constitution, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”

HB1439 lists specific federal laws and actions for nullification, including but not limited to “any registering or tracking of the owners of firearms, firearms 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” and “any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens.”

The bill “now moves to the state senate where a committee is likely to hear it in the coming week.”

    2. Looks like the “Show Me State” is going to “Show Them”. Maybe it’s time to change the state motto to the “Show Them State”?
