ROUND 2 STARTS TODAY
The Missouri 2nd Amendment Preservation Act sailed through the legislature this year, but was vetoed by Jay Nixon. The House override vote squeezed through, and the senate override failed by one vote.
Why did it fail? Some of it was technical, some political and some strategic.
1. The Bill Itself
FACT: The more a bill tries to accomplish, the less of a chance it has at becoming law.
HB436 tried to accomplish far too much and became susceptible to weakness. Conceal-carry, free speech issues, and the like should not be in a bill with a goal of nullifying FEDERAL violations of the 2nd Amendment. Why? Because it won’t become law.
STRATEGY: Keep it short and simple. Don’t bite off more than you can chew. Mom was right.Details
