Add Missouri to the give Obama the finger list:
Missouri Representative Todd Richardson has introduced a bill that would stop federal gun control “laws” at the state border.
HB 209 would amend the Missouri Code concerning firearms. The text of the bill simply states that:
Any federal law, rule, regulation, or order created or effective on or after January 1, 2013 shall be unenforceable in the state of Missouri if the law, rule, regulation, or order attempts to:
(1) Ban or restrict ownership of a semi-automatic firearm or any magazine of a firearm; or
(2) Require any firearm, magazine, or other firearm accessory to be registered in any manner.
This bill, if passed, would nullify any federal gun control bill that would limit the citizens of Missouri access to firearms, ammunition and accessories and make it a felony to try to implement it in Mississippi. A section from this bill reads:
Any official, agent, or employee of the federal government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the federal government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in the state of Missouri and that remains exclusively within the borders of the state of Missouri shall be guilty of a class D felony.
HB 209 was introduced on January 17, 2013 and has not yet been assigned to committee.
