It appears the Missouri Legislature, which is led by Republicans, will look to override Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of a gun bill that would expand gun owner rights and nullify federal gun laws. The vetoed gun bill is entitled the “Second Amendment Preservation Act.”
The Associated Press reports:
Several of Nixon’s fellow Democrats told The Associated Press that they would vote to override his veto when lawmakers convene in September, even while agreeing with the governor that the bill couldn’t survive a court challenge. Many of them noted that in some parts of Missouri, a “no” vote on gun legislation could be career ending.
