Missouri is Preparing to Reject Federal Gun Control

Published

on

The Missouri Senate is on the verge of rejecting all federal gun control.

In an upcoming vote in the Missouri State Senate, Missouri is expected to approve a bill that would nullify all Second Amendment infringements coming from the federal government. On top of that, this bill would criminalize the enforcement of these gun control laws by federal officers who operate in Missouri.

Republicans, who control more than two-thirds of seats in both the Missouri House and Senate, have a golden opportunity to restore gun rights in the Show Me State. SB 367 and its companion bill in the State House, HB 786, would prohibit all state agencies and their employees from enforcing any federal law violating the Second Amendment—gun registration, fees, fines, licenses, and bans. The original version of this bill, SB 613, passed both chambers of the Missouri General Assembly but was vetoed by former Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.

A sneak preview of SB 367 shows that this bill has teeth:

“All federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations, whether past, present, or future, which infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States I and Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution shall be invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, shall be specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”

The authors of SB 367 detailed which federal laws will be nullified:

(a) Any tax, levy, fee, or stamp imposed on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(b) Any registering or tracking of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(c) Any registering or tracking of the owners of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

(d) Any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens; and

(e) Any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens”

SB 367 is as pro-gun as it gets. Time will tell if this bill will actually make it to Governor Mike Parson’s desk. There will be the usual suspects opposing this bill, such as anti-gun Democrats and big city anti-gun interest groups. However, gun owners must be careful of establishment gun lobbies who will likely do everything they can to kill SB 367 behind the scenes or sneak in poison pill provisions to gut the bill.

Nevertheless, 2019 appears to be a big year for gun owners nationwide. When 2018 looked like the year of the gun grabber, with states passing gun control left and right, 2019 has seen states like Kentucky, Oklahoma, and South Dakota pass Constitutional Carry. Additionally, rural counties in states like Colorado, Maryland, and New Mexico have recently revolted against their anti-gun, big city overlords.

Pro-gun momentum is picking up steam nationwide, and Missouri is poised to make a big splash. From rural counties standing up to state legislatures misrepresenting them to state legislatures rejecting federal gun control, gun owners have a moral obligation to reject all forms of gun control.

Not even a one-third of the way in, 2019 is already looking like a great year for pro-gun activists.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
