In a five-to-one vote on January 28, the Missouri Senate General Laws Committee approved Missouri Senate Bill 613, the “Second Amendment Preservation Act.” Like HB 1439, the House version covered here in January, SB 613’s most prominent provision invalidates federal laws that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms (which would presumably be every federal gun law), and subjects those enforcing such laws in Missouri to fines and up to a year imprisonment.
Both versions of the bill also provide for school teachers and/or administrators to be designated “school protection officers,” authorized to carry firearms to protect the school from attack; lower the age of eligibility for concealed carry permits from 21 to 19; preempt local restrictions on openly carried firearms; protect medical personnel from any law requiring them to inquire about a patient’s firearm ownership; and ban firearm possession by illegal aliens.
– Kentucky has had a similar bill in the past but it’s stopped in committee by the commies. How is it that Kentucky votes ‘conservatives'(loosely defined) into national office but allows the commies to control our state legislature?????
Is it really just the good ol’ boy system on the local level?
