Mo. Considers Bill That Nullifies Federal Gun Control Laws

State lawmakers reassert the Tenth Amendment

The Missouri Senate’s General Laws Committee is currently considering a bill that would nullify federal firearm laws which “exceed the scope of the federal government’s authority.”

James Madison introduced the Tenth Amendment to Congress, which states that powers not granted to the federal gov’t are reserved to the States or to the people.

Yesterday the committee began discussing Senate Bill 613, sponsored by State Senator Brian Nieves (R-26th), which is designed to protect the gun rights of Missourians from laws that run contrary to the Second Amendment and bars state employees and public officers from aiding in the enforcement of such laws.
