Bill to make federal gun laws unenforceable in Missouri vetoed by Missouri governorMissouri's Democratic governor vetoed legislation Friday that sought to make federal gun laws unenforceable in the state.
In a carefully worded statement that prominently addressed his pro-gun bona fides in a state Mitt Romney carried 54% to President Obama's 44% in 2012, Gov. Jay Nixon argued that the legislation violated a provision in the U.S. Constitution called the Supremacy Clause. The Supremacy Clause gives preference to federal laws over state laws.
Called House Bill 436, the legislation cleared the Republican-controlled state Senate and House with huge majorities, 26-6 in the Senate and 116-38 in the House. It sought to make any federal legislation past, present and future "that infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment" null and void in the state of Missouri.
