In 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.

That part.

For Missouri right wingnuts there is only one true Amendment.

From the social media live feed:

– from the social media live feed

“…[We’re] taking a stand against a tyrannical government…” “…We are telling this President, who wants to take away our rights, that he can go pound sand…” – Rick Burlison (r) – Missouri State Senator

“…Now no one is coming to take my AR-15…” – Hardy Billington (r) – Missouri State Representative

– from the social media live feed

“…This facility represents Christian values, family values, and the Second Amendment…” – Mike Parson (r) – Missouri Governor

Some of the Twitter responses to Mike Parson (r):

do you actually think this will stand up in court? do you know how stupid of an act this is? pandering to your gun toting base instead of protecting the citizens of the state from criminals. how do you sleep at night?

Guns before people. For shame.

Like why do we need this? Playing to the base!!

Is there any state in America I can run to that’s not being governed by stupid people?

Can’t fix stupid

Showing your contempt for the Constitution (the supremacy clause) and human life, all with a single pen stroke!

So on brand for the modern so-called “pro-life” “pro-Constitution” party!

You disgusted me with your 2nd amendment BS. Easier to get a gun than to register a car.

Yay more guns with which nut bags can shoot innocent bystanders. Great job Gov. you da man. You will visit every funeral of those shot unnecessarily right?

Every school child is taught that federal law supersedes state. You are wasting MO taxpayers money on bs that will not stand up in court. SHAME!

Don’t ask him about state support for public education in Missouri.

That moment when the self proclaimed pro-lifer cares more about inanimate objects than he does about human lives.

You’re pathetic.
I used to be proud to be a Missourian.
You. Hawley. Greitens.
You people make me sick.

You are a fool @GovParsonMO
