The Missouri state legislature is trying to accomplish something that’s never been done: pass a law that will not only let residents own a machine gun, but also arrest federal agents if they try to take it away.
According to CNN, the Missouri Governor’s press secretary said there is a small provision in House Bill 436 that would make this possible, although it’s unlikely.
Meh. I doubt that the Missouri legislature has the balls to do it, and even if they do, they won’t pass it with enough votes to override a veto. Furthermore, since the state police report to the Governor, and since Governor Nixon is a collectivist, he won’t use the power of the state police to enforce such a law. The next step in Missouri is replacement of their sorry-ass governor.
But it’s nice to dream, no? I’m still waiting for the first federal marshall or ATF agent to be arrested and thrown in with the general prison population for enforcement of unconstitutional gun laws. One day.
