On May 16th the Missouri legislature passed a bill containing a number of gun law reforms. The reforms were all passed as part of a bill that does not contain any provision for nullification of federal gun laws. LMTD at opencarry.org has this to say about the possibility of Democrat Governor Nixon signing the bill:
Since this is the same as last year less nullification and nullification was his objection he is in a rock and hard place, I am wondering if he won't just ignore and let it expire and move along. Seems a veto might be bad timing for him but you never know.Here are the primary reforms that would be enacted with SB0656:
encounter with local leo in st. Louis muni..officer says he always disarms ccw people so heThis is a classic case of police using their authority to chill the exercise of a constitutional right. Consider if the police would routinely take your cell phone to "check the serial number to see if it was stolen". Many more people would not be talking on cell phones in public or would keep them hidden while walking about.
can run serial number...what's with that..I informed him with new bill in legislation that would be
an unlawfull act to disarm with out making arrest merely for snooping purpose of valid ccw carriers,
and could lead to lawsuit against officer with out his being able to hide behind immunity....
The only reason he won’t veto it would be if it might cost him an election. Being labeled a hypocrite means nothing to Democrats. They only fold if it could cost them personally. Otherwise they will be in lock step with the agenda.
What is the status of the prohibition of CCW permitees from carrying on public transport such as buses or light rail?
