Missouri House Takes Away Federal Gun Powers

Posted on April 27, 2013


Missouri (Liz Klimas-The Blaze) – Missouri’s proposed legislation that would make it illegal to enforce any federal gun control laws enacted in 2013 and beyond passed by an overwhelming majority in the state’s House of Representatives this week and will move on to its Senate.

The bill sponsored by state Rep. Casey Guernsey (R-Bethany), which the House passed with a 117-43 vote, says that a “federal official must not enforce a federal firearm law when the firearm is manufactured and remains in the state and that any new federal law banning or restricting ownership of a semi-automatic firearm is unenforceable.”

Guernsey told the Huffington Post that “whenever the federal government or President Obama takes any measure on gun control,” they are taking away Second Amendment rights of citizens. This proposed legislation would only apply to gun laws enacted in 2013 and afterward, because Guernsey said he believes those put in place in prior years can be effective.
