Missouri Senate Approves Federal Gun Nullification Bill Again

Post Dispatch:
JEFFERSON CITY • The Missouri Senate on Thursday passed a bill on federal gun law nullification.

The federal gun law nullification bill, sponsored by Sen. Brian Nieves, R-Washington, passed on a vote of 23 to 10.

The bill would declare all federal gun laws null and void, and law enforcement agents enforcing those bills would be subject to up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

An amendment added to the bill last week, which would require individuals to report a gun theft within 72 hours, sparked criticism from the National Rifle Association.

Prior to that, the NRA had remained silent on the issue.

On Monday, Senate members stripped the amendment from the bill.

A similar gun measure passed the Legislature last year and was vetoed by Gov. Jay Nixon
