A Slap in the Face of Liberty: Gov. Nixon attempts to block 2nd Amendment Preservation Act one day after Independence Day
originally posted at Missouri Tenth
HB 436 establishes the Second Amendment Preservation Act, which rejects all Federal acts that infringe on a Missouri citizens’ rights under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Ironically, this bill was just vetoed by Governor Nixon one day after Independence Day – a day for Missourians to celebrate Independence from the tyranny of an Empire seeking to impose their ideals on the colonies (Read Gov. Nixon’s veto letter here). Coincidence? And although it would have been nice for Nixon to allow HB 436 to become law, the veto wasn’t unexpected – despite Nixon’s campaign claims to be pro 2nd Amendment. HB 436 passed with enough votes to override the veto in September, so that’s where we must now turn our attention.Details
