Missouri House passes bill aimed at nullifying federal gun control laws

Missouri’s House voted Thursday to pass a scaled-back version of gun rights legislation that wouldn’t send federal agents to jail for enforcing some federal gun laws, a change that garnered praise from Senate leaders.

Under the bill, which passed with enough support to override a possible veto, Missouri would refuse to enforce past, present and future federal gun control laws that are deemed to be infringements on gun rights, and residents would have the right to sue law enforcement for enforcing such laws.

But the House legislation wouldn’t send those agents to jail, a possibility that was included in other versions of the measure, including the Senate bill that was passed earlier this year.

After the Thursday vote, Senate leaders indicated that they could accept the House bill that doesn’t include potential jail time. Senate Majority Leader Ron Richard, R-Joplin, called it a “good change.”
