Because there was nothing important or pressing to take care of for the people of Missouri?

United States Constitution:

Article VI
All debts contracted and engagements entered into, before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

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.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

Gun Sense MO Mom @mizzouatheart
House is now about to consider HB 85, a bill that prohibits and punishes state and local law enforcement from cooperating with federal law enforcement to enforce federal firearms laws in Missouri. This bill is still unconstitutional and bad for public safety. #moleg

Yeah, that pesky “Supremacy Clause” thingy.


HB 162: Tenthers and guns, what could go wrong? (January 16, 2013)

HB 2174: Guns, check. Sort of nullification, check. (March 25, 2014)

HB 2196: blah, blah, guns, tenther drivel, blah, recycle, blah, stir… (January 13, 2016)
