Missouri House votes to override veto of gun bill

State House voted to override gubernatorial veto of measure to nullify some federal gun control policies

September 11, 2013 7:19PM ET

A Missouri state legislature bill attempting to nullify some federal gun control policies moved a step closer to becoming law Wednesday, as the state House voted to override a gubernatorial veto of the measure.

The 109-49 House vote in the met the bare minimum needed for a veto override, but the legislation still must get a two-thirds majority in the state’s Senate for it to become law.

The legislation declares any federal policies that "infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms" shall be invalid in Missouri. It allows state misdemeanor charges to be brought against federal agents who try to enforce those laws, or against anyone who publishes the identity of a gun owner.

The Missouri measure is an attempt to "push back the tyranny of an out-of-control and incompetent federal government," said the bill's sponsor, Rep. Doug Funderburk, a Republican from suburban St. Louis.
