    Missouri House Proposes Jail Time for Feds Violating the 2nd Amendment


    Missouri conservatives proposed a bill that will punish feds violating the Second Amendment with jail time.

    Introduced by Missouri State Representative Casey Guernsey, with 61 co-sponsors, is the Missouri 2nd Amendment Preservation Act. House Bill 170 (HB170) would nullify any and all federal acts, orders, laws, statutes, rules, or regulations of the federal government on personal firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition.

    The bill states, in part:

    “Any official, agent, or employee of the federal government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the federal government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in the state of Missouri and that remains exclusively within the borders of the state of Missouri shall be guilty of a class D felony.”

    A class D felony in Missouri carries a prison sentence of up to 4 years.

    While a number of states, including Wyoming, South Carolina, Indiana, and others – are looking to go head to head with the feds on specific issues under the 2nd amendment, the Missouri legislation is the strongest introduced anywhere in the

    Yeah that would be great. But I think federal law supersedes any state law. That's why we had the civil war.

    Problem is that the states can't function without federal money. The Feds have all the cards and the states are trying to play poker.

    Jerbear, that candyass sheriff is conducting a political stunt to secure his re-election. Nothing more, nothing less. And the fact that a letter from him to the VP is on the web is proof of it. Do you think Biden's office released the letter? Of course not.

    Not only that but it's his duty to uphold the law whether he agrees with it or not. If he chooses not to he would be looking at losing his job and faceing jail time himself.

    David Gregory has already proved just how selective enforcement works.

    He was told not to use that mag. His wife was an actor in a play with the DC AG.

    Michigan is drafting legislation similar to Texas's.

    RWT you beat me to the draw, that's what I was going to say, the feds have no money they steal it from the citizens and companies in the states

    Then try to convince you they are giving you something when they dole it back out to you

    @548 - it may have spipped your notice that the Sheriff was stating that he will enforce Oregon Law over an Executive Order by the President that conflicts with State Law regarding the 2nd Amendment.

    Where in the US Constitution does the Constitution grant the Executive the capability or Authority to over ride either the Constitution or Federal Law as passed by Congress?

    The United States Supreme Court ruled in Mack and Printz v. United States, 521 U.S. 898 (1997) that the federal government could not compel state officials to enforce federal law. Jay Printz and Richard Mack were the sheriffs for Ravalli County, Montana, and Graham County, Arizona, respectively.

    So yes, 548, it is unconstitutional to require a local sheriff to enforce a federal gun ban.
