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

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.

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.
