Missouri Governor Mike Parson, a Republicans has signed a bill that prohibits police officers within the state from enforcing federal gun laws.
“It is our time to protect the Second Amendment,” Parson declared. “This is exactly what this bill does, and it’s time to get this thing signed and get it into law.”
Mike Brown, co-founder of Frontier Justice shooting range said, where the legislation was signed said “While some people may not spend a lot of time thinking about the Second Amendment, it’s critical to the preservation of our republic.”
Meanwhile, Democrats in Missouri were not happy about the move.
MO House minority leader, Crystal Quade, a Democrat said “House Bill 85 is a radical, dangerous and obviously unconstitutional attempt to declare that Missouri will refuse to follow federal gun laws.”
“It quite literally defunds the police and gives that taxpayer money to convicted criminals. It is long past time for Republicans in Jefferson City to stop the political grandstanding, take their jobs as leaders seriously and pass real solutions to crime in our state,” she added in her statement.
