Missouri Governor Vetoed Bill that Nullifies Federal Gun Laws
Quote:Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed legislation Friday that would have made it a Missouri crime for federal agents to attempt to enforce federal gun laws in the state and could have landed journalists in jail for publishing the names of gun owners.

The Democratic governor said the bill passed by the Republican-led Legislature violated the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution, which generally gives preference to federal laws over conflicting state ones.

He said it also infringed in the First Amendment rights of free speech and press.

Some supporters of the legislation had proclaimed it one of the most gun-friendly bills ever passed by a state legislature. Nixon, however, said it could have had extreme consequences.

“Under this bill, newspaper editors around the state that annually publish photos of proud young Missourians who harvest their first turkey or deer could be charged with a crime,” the governor said in a written statement announcing the veto.

Legislators would need a two-thirds vote in both the House and Senate to override Nixon’s veto when they return to session in September.

If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

This was shit legislation.

How about changing Missouri law that strips municipalities, particularly St. Louis, of any right to set local gun law that differs from state law, like our PA uniformity act?

MO is one of those open carry states where it's a toilet of different rules for every five feet of space you traverse on foot.
