MO Senate Passes Bill Prohibiting Police Enforcement of Gun Control
by AWR Hawkins
The Missouri Senate passed legislation Thursday night designed to prohibit police from enforcing numerous federal gun controls in the state.
On January 24, 2021, Breitbart News noted State Sen. Eric Burlison (R-Battlefield) was pushing the “Second Amendment Preservation Act” to nullify new Biden gun controls within state lines.
On May 13, 2021, the Senate passed Burlison’s act 22 to 10.
The Kansas City Star reports the vote was along party lines, garnering Republican support and Democrat opposition.
The push to nullify federal gun controls has been introduced in the Missouri legislation “and gone nowhere for at least the last five years.” But the election of Joe Biden, combined with his gun control push–including executive gun control–served as the impetus to get the “Second Amendment Preservation Act” over the top this year.
