Missouri Senate Votes To Nullify Federal Gun Control, 23-10


Tenth Amendment

This article comes from the Tenth Amendment Center.

A Missouri bill which seeks to nullify virtually every federal gun control measure on the books, “whether past, present or future,” passed the Senate Thursday. SB613 would ban the state from enforcing virtually all federal gun control measures, and includes criminal charges for federal agents attempting to violate the right to keep and bear arms in Missouri.

The measure passed 23-10.

SB613 counts as what could be the strongest defense against federal encroachments on the right to keep an bear arms ever considered at the state level. It reads, in part:

“All federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations, whether past, present, or future, which infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States I and Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution shall be invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, shall be specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”

Federal acts which would be considered “null and void and of no effect” include, but are not limited to:

(a) Any tax, levy, fee, or stamp imposed on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(b) Any registering or tracking of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(c) Any registering or tracking of the owners of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(d) Any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens; and

(e) Any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens

The legislation specifically bans all state employees from enforcing or attempting to enforce any acts running counter to the proposed law. Such a tactic is an extremely effective way to stop a federal government busting at the seams. Even the National Governors Association admitted the same recently when they sent out a press release noting that “States are partners with the federal government in implementing most federal programs.”

That means states can create impediments to enforcing and implementing “most federal programs.”  On federal gun control measures, Judge Andrew Napolitano suggested that a single state standing down would make federal gun laws “nearly impossible to enforce” within that state.

James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution,” advised this very tactic.  Madison supplied the blueprint for resisting federal power inFederalist 46. He outlined several steps that states can take to effective stop “an unwarrantable measure,” or “even a warrantable measure” of the federal government. Madison called for “refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union” as a way to successfully thwart federal acts.

    This is good to see happening.

    “SB613 counts as what could be the strongest defense against federal encroachments on the right to keep an bear arms ever considered at the state level.”

    But what everyone seems to not understand is that WE ALREADY HAVE THE LAWS IN PLACE STOPPING FEDERAL ENCROACHMENT AND UNLAWFUL ACTS – the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution.. That is not now, nor has it ever been the problem.

    The PROBLEM IS ENFORCEMENT. That is what it all comes down to. Everything else is just saying that we have these already protected natural rights enumerated in the US Constitution, which we do.

    Maybe this will help.

    Every person who took an Oath took on the PERSONAL responsibility for their actions and for the support and defense of the US Constitution. Yes, personal.

    How do you think that those in the Military were prosecuted for following an unlawful order? Because they were PERSONALLY responsible for their actions after taking the Oath. The Military itself was not responsible because they passed that responsibility to the individual when they are sworn in.

    Example: Say a SWAT team gets an address wrong, or does not knock – already unlawful, breaks in the house – another unlawful act on the part of every member there; then in the process “accidentally” kills a person, or multiple people living within their home – First Degree Murder on the part of ALL involved, including those who planned it and SENT them out even if it was the correct address. Why first degree, because it was planned. Why is everyone who was involved in the act in any way – paperwork etc guilty of that crime also? Because of the Oath – they took personal responsibility to see that every action they commit was in support of and in defense of the US Constitution. That is why it is unlawful for raids to be set up and no information given to those carrying out the raid – THEY ARE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS and they need to have ALL the information before committing the act.

    The knock and lawful warrant being executed in the proper way protected NOT just the people but also those who were carrying out those actions. Those actions – here in the USA – are ONLY allowed under certain conditions – and they all swore an oath to ONLY commit those actions under those conditions.

    Once again the problem is ENFORCEMENT. The US Constitution does not allow the feds or the state’s to do most of what they are currently doing which means at this time we no longer have a government but are under attack by traitors and domestic enemies of the USA, whatever position they pretend to hold. None of those in the US Military (Pentagon), federal LEO’s, state LEO’s are keeping their personal commitment which is a crime of itself. Enforcing unlawful orders adds to the crime.

    Remember that the US Constitution assigns the duties of enforcing the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution, Enforcing and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which is constitutional laws ONLY), protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and suppressing Insurrections and repelling Invasions” to the Militia of the several states.

    Sorry, error here: “None of those in the US Military (Pentagon), federal LEO’s, state LEO’s are keeping their personal commitment which is a crime of itself. Enforcing unlawful orders adds to the crime.”

    Should read: “”A lot of those in the US Military (Pentagon), federal LEO’s, state LEO’s are keeping their personal commitment which is a crime of itself. Enforcing unlawful orders adds to the crime.”

    obviously they like the other infringements!
    background checks, 4473 forms, 1968, and NFA act of 1933-34.
    Sorry but this isn’t much in the eye of tyranny but E for effort!

    @ Cal, Comment #1 Paragraph #2 If I am reading you right SPOT ON! The second amendment makes it very clear “the right to keep and BEAR ARMS shall not be infringed. So in reality I don’t need a license to carry a concealed weapon or to carry an M-16 down the street. And the reason I said M-16 is because it is what the military is issued myself and you and all other Oath Keepers are part of the Militia and are able to carry the same weapons as the military for the express purpose to keep the government in line. Please tell me if you think I am wrong.
