Last Action: 02/25/2019 – Read Second Time (H)
Bill String: HB 1039

In the bill [pdf]:

…1.420. The following federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations shall be considered infringements on the people’s right to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed by Amendment II of the Constitution of the United States and Article I, Section 23 of the Constitution of Missouri, within the borders of this state…

Uh, we see your tenther drivel and raise you a supremacy clause:

United States Constitution, Article VI
…This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding…

What’s worse? The sponsor actually believes everything in the bill, or he knows it’s bullshit and he filed it anyway?


HB 1052: Matchlock or flintlock? (February 25, 2019)
