Missouri Governor signs ‘Second Amendment Preservation Act’ into law

MISSOURI (WSIL) — Missouri Governor Mike Parson signed the ‘Second Amendment Preservation Act’ (HB 85) into law on Saturday, June 12. His office tells News 3 the law is designed to ‘protect Missourian’s second amendment rights.’ In a press release, the office explains the law, ‘Prohibits state and local cooperation with federal officials that attempt to enforce any laws, rules, orders, or actions that violate the Second Amendment rights of Missourians. These protections against federal overreach are triggered if federal officials attempt to violate the state or federal constitution.’ It says any person or entity who deprives a Missouri citizen of the right to bear arms could face a $50,000 fine. Local agencies will still be able to help federal officials with other matters. Governor Parson’s statement reads: “HB 85 puts those in Washington D.C. on notice that here in Missouri we support responsible, law-abiding gun owners, and that we oppose government overreach and any unlawful efforts to limit our access to firearms."
