Second Amendment Preservation Act

HB 436 is the strongest protection of the
right to keep and bear arms in the entire nation!
Sponsor: Rep. Doug Funderburk

Public hearing: March 5th at 12:00 in Hearing Room 4

In Missouri, HB 436 and it's companion Senate bill, SB 325, are the bills with the strongest protection against federal infringement of the right to keep and bear arms.
House Bill 436:
Sponsor: Rep. Doug Funderburk
Establishes the Second Amendment Preservation Act which rejects all federal acts that infringe on a Missouri citizens' rights under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.
Senate Bill 325:
Sponsor: Senator Brian Nieves

Declares the General Assembly's position on the authority of the federal government, declares as invalid certain federal gun laws, and prohibits the enforcement of such laws.
The House General Laws Committee will hold a public hearing, March 5th for the Second Amendment Preservation Act. This committee is predisposed to support this bill, but we need to send a message of strong support that will resonate throughout the Capitol.

Details about HB 436 & SB 325

Since the 10th Amendment makes it clear that all powers not granted to the federal government are reserved to the states and the People, the regulation of the ownership of arms is a state, not a federal matter.

Rep. Doug Funderburk and Sen. Brian Nieves' "Second Amendment Preservation Act" is the strongest and most principled protection of the right to keep and bear arms in the nation!

The Second Amendment Act utilizes the words of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison to explain Missouri's authority to nullify unconstitutional federal edicts within her borders. Including this language is essential to the success of the bill. It also specifically lists the types of things we will not put up with, and that's what gives state officials the "cover" they need to enforce the bill.
