NEWTOWN, Conn – -(Ammoland.com)- In the wake of the 2016 elections, [in the wake huge losses by Democrat gun banners] the gun control battle will continue to shift to both the state and local levels.

As we have seen over the years when little success can be achieved in Washington, D.C., gun control activists move their focus and resources to the states and even more so to urban areas.

This week in St. Louis, Missouri, 28th Ward Alderwoman Lyda Krewson announced that she has filed a bill that would ban so-called “assault weapons” inside the city limits.

The bill would make it illegal within St. Louis for anyone to import, sell, manufacture, transfer or possess an “assault weapon.” If the bill were to pass, city residents would have 60 days after it becomes law to dispose of firearms that meet this description, or remove them from the city.

Krewson, who is a candidate for mayor, seems willing to lead the confiscation of legally-owned property from her residents with the introduction of this bill.

Fortunately, Missouri has one of the strongest preemption statutes in the country, so the city council needs to strongly consider the ramifications of passing this measure. NSSF will keep you informed of developments.

Gil – got it backwards as usual!

First off, and I know this is nitpicky, St. Louis city has a board of alderman. On to more important things, MO does have a preemption that only the state legislature can pass laws dealing with firearms, ammunition, ect. I believe that it should prevent the bill from progressing, as the president of the board of alderman called the law a “feel good” measure and would not pass legal challenges. Now what is really shocking is the language of the bill would make most glock pistols, any pistol with a threaded barrel, M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, C96 Broomhandle Mausers, Roth… Read more »

Just make sure she has an “accident” before she can pass it.

Missouri State Constitution: Article 1, Section 23. Section 23.

I don’t know what the preemption laws are in Missouri; but, here in Florida I believe she would already be facing legal charges since she announced she “FILED A BILL”. The state laws pertaining to use and ownership of firearms in Florida were revised in (2010 or 2011?) to hold local politicians and/or officials personally responsible and subject to fines and/or loss of office (precise wording escapes me at the moment) for knowingly ‘attempting’ to pass ordinances or regulations or to attempt to enforce signs that are in non-compliance with the existing state laws that regulate such matters. I believe… Read more »

EACH gun owner in that city should file an individual lawsuit against the city and that gun grabber. She violated the preemption law

This can happen. It happened in Massachusetts with the swipe of a pen. Don’t take your rights for granted, destroy the liberal scum before they multiple.

As a friend of mine found out, returning home to CT, he was a felon because he didn’t turn in his custom built “assault rifles” on time. He hadn’t heard about the new ‘law’ that for posession after Jan 30, 2013, you are a felon, no excuses, no grandfather clause.

So he hops off the plane after his third deploymenr to Afghanistan as a US Army Special Ops……………………… You fill in the rest…

Do not comply! Do not turn in even one gun. Since when does an alder woman overturn the Constitution of the United States! We all stick together!

Clint Biediger

I wonder if she has heard President-Elect Trump’s views on 2nd amendment rights and stand on existing laws?

Macofjack

She will find out that outside STL she is a POS and will not get any futher!

NRA Endowment member: stay strong be a member of the NRA and fight liberal left wing hacks that want to take your 2nd Amendment rights. Remember the Germans , and other anti-democratic governments always take your right to self preservation away before forcing it’s citizens to be subservient by armed force.

The Nazis loosened gun control. The previous Republic had the people disarmed.

Macofjack

Yea, loosened it if you were a Nazi! Otherwise off to the camps!

Gil

The majority with guns didn’t help the minority without guns? Oh dear.

Wild Bill

, What another poster is not telling you is the Weimar Republic was very liberal in the same ways and amounts as the Democrat party is in our time. The Weimar Republic decreed gun registration “so that no extremist group could ever obtain firearms.” Then the extremist Nazi party came to power and the rest is history. So if the entire truth is to be known, it took two extreme groups to disarm the German people. see “Lethal Laws” Simkin, Zelman, and Rice. And see “A Danger to Public Safety” Halbrook

Show me state, so she showed her ASS!!!

hijinx60

LOL. You got that right !!

Mick

As civilian models of AR-15s, AK-47s, etc are not “assault rifles” but semi-auto modern sporting rifles, this ignorant twit is barking up the wrong tree !

Craig Butelo
