The Missouri Senate passed legislation designed to prohibit the police from enforcing the numerous federal gun controls in the state on Thursday night.
Sen. Eric Burlison (R) was pushing the “Second Amendment Preservation Act” to nullify new Biden gun controls within state lines reported by Breitbart News on January 24, 2021.
The Missouri Senate passed Burlison’s act on May 13, 2021, with a vote of 22 to 10.
The Kansas City Star reports the vote was along party lines, garnering Republican support and Democrat opposition.
The push to nullify federal gun controls has been introduced “for the last five years and has gone nowhere.” Now the election of Joe Biden, combined with his radical gun control push – including executive gun control – serving as the incentive to get the “Second Amendment Preservation Act” over the top this year.
Burlison commented, “We’re not eliminating federal firearms laws in Missouri. We’re just simply saying we’re not going to lift a finger to enforce their rules.”
Numerous other states have also passed laws to block their law enforcement officers from enforcing Biden gun control.
For example, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) signed legislation in early April barring enforcement of new federal gun controls. And on April 24, 2021, Breitbart News pointed out that Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte (R) signed a bill to protect the Second Amendment from new federal laws and regulations.
On April 14, 2021, Breitbart News noted Gov. Pete Ricketts (R) declared Nebraska a “Second Amendment Sanctuary State.”
