JEFFERSON CITY. Mo. (Feb. 11, 2019) – Bills introduced in the Missouri House would set the foundation create a “gun rights sanctuary state” by banning state and local enforcement of most federal gun control. Passage into law would represent a major step toward ending federal acts that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms within the state in practice and effect.
Sen. Eric Burlison (R-Battlefield) introduced Senate Bill 367 (SB367), and Rep. Jeff Pogue (R-Salem) introduced House Bill 785 (HB786). Titled the “Second Amendment Preservation Act,” the legislation would ban any person, including any public officer or employee of the state and its political subdivisions, from enforcing any past, present or future federal “acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, or regulations” that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms.
