    Just checked the General Assembly's Legislative Calendar. I'm only going to paste the proposed Bills this one time and reference bill number hereafter.
    ---
    No Action On-going on either of these House Bills :eek: Only entered into record. MO Residents...time to turn up the heat and doubly-secure our established and inalienable rights to RKBA and the 'stuff' that goes with them! Note: Atch'd jpeg was borrowed from a 'fb' post from a 2A supporter.

    HB 162 Missouri Firearms Freedom Act - Ro amend chapter 21, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to the Missouri firearms freedom act. Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:

    Section A. Chapter 21, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 21.755, to read as follows:
    21.755. 1. This section shall be called and may be cited as the "Missouri Firearms Freedom Act".
    2. The general assembly declares that the authority for this section is the following:
    (1) Amendment X of the Constitution of the United States guarantees to the states and their people all powers not granted to the federal government elsewhere in the Constitution and reserves to the state and people of Missouri certain powers as they were understood at the time that Missouri was admitted to statehood. The guarantee of those powers is a matter of contract between the state and people of Missouri and the United States as of the time that the compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted by Missouri and the United States;
    (2) Amendment IX of the Constitution of the United States guarantees to the people rights not granted in the Constitution and reserves to the people of Missouri certain rights as they were understood at the time that Missouri was admitted to statehood. The guarantee of those rights is a matter of contract between the state and people of Missouri and the United States as of the time that the compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted by Missouri and the United States;
    (3) The regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the states under Amendments IX and X of the Constitution of the United States, particularly if not expressly preempted by federal law. Congress has not expressly preempted state regulation of intrastate commerce pertaining to the manufacture on an intrastate basis of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition;
    (4) Amendment II of the Constitution of the United States reserves to the people the right to keep and bear arms as that right was understood at the time that Missouri was admitted to statehood, and the guarantee of the right is a matter of contract between the state and people of Missouri and the United States as of the time that the compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted by Missouri and the United States; and
    (5) Article I, section 23, Constitution of Missouri clearly secures to Missouri citizens, and prohibits government interference with, the right of individual Missouri citizens to keep and bear arms.
    3. As used in this section, unless the context otherwise requires, the following terms shall mean:
    (1) "Firearms accessories", items that are used in conjunction with or mounted upon a firearm but are not essential to the basic function of a firearm, including but not limited to telescopic or laser sights, magazines, flash or sound suppressors, folding or aftermarket stocks and grips, speedloaders, ammunition carriers, and lights for target illumination;
    (2) "Generic and insignificant parts", includes but is not limited to springs, screws, nuts, and pins;
    (3) "Manufactured", creating a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition from basic materials for functional usefulness, including but not limited to forging, casting, machining, or other processes for working materials.
    4. A personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Missouri and that remains within the borders of Missouri is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of Congress to regulate interstate commerce. It is declared by the legislature that those items have not traveled in interstate commerce. This section applies to a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured in Missouri from basic materials and that can be manufactured without the inclusion of any significant parts imported into this state. Generic and insignificant parts that have other manufacturing or consumer product applications are not firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition, and their importation into Missouri and incorporation into a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured in Missouri does not subject the firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition to federal regulation. It is declared by the legislature that basic materials, such as unmachined steel and unshaped wood, are not firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition and are not subject to congressional authority to regulate firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition under interstate commerce as if they were actually firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition. The authority of Congress to regulate interstate commerce in basic materials does not include the authority to regulate firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition made in Missouri from those materials. Firearms accessories that are imported into Missouri from another state and that are subject to federal regulation as being in interstate commerce do not subject a firearm to federal regulation under interstate commerce because they are attached to or used in conjunction with a firearm in Missouri.
    5. The provisions of this section shall not apply to:
    (1) A firearm that cannot be carried and used by one person;
    (2) A firearm that has a bore diameter greater than one half inch and that uses smokeless powder, not black powder, as a propellant;
    (3) Ammunition with a projectile that explodes using an explosion of chemical energy after the projectile leaves the firearm; or
    (4) A firearm that discharges two or more projectiles with one activation of the trigger or other firing device.
    6. A firearm manufactured or sold in Missouri under the provisions of this section shall have the words "Made in Missouri" clearly stamped on a central metallic part, such as the receiver or frame.

    HB 170 Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:

    Section A. Chapter 571, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 571.048, to read as follows:
    571.048. 1. It shall be unlawful for any officer or employee of this state, or any political subdivision, or any federal firearms dealer licensed under 19 U.S.C. Section 923 to enforce or attempt to enforce any act, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the federal government relating to a personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in the state of Missouri and that remains exclusively within the boundaries of the state of Missouri.
    2. Any official, agent, or employee of the federal government who enforces or attempts to enforce any act, order, law, statute, rule, or regulation of the federal government upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is owned or manufactured commercially or privately in the state of Missouri and that remains exclusively within the borders of the state of Missouri shall be guilty of a class D felony.
    3. Any person in violation of a federal law relating to the manufacture, sale, transfer, or possession of a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition owned or manufactured and retained exclusively with the boundaries of the state of Missouri may request the attorney general to defend him or her for such violation.
    4. Any federal law, rule, regulation, or order created or effective on or after January 1, 2013 shall be unenforceable in the state of Missouri if the law, rule, regulation, or order attempts to:
    (1) Ban or restrict ownership of a semi-automatic firearm or any magazine of a firearm; or
    (2) Require any firearm, magazine, or other firearm accessory to be registered in any manner.

    I think I posted it somewhere on the Forum....but just in case I didn't or you overlooked it:

    Rep. Leara (R) from the St Louis are has drafted a Bill that makes anyone attempting to subvert the RKBA in Missouri will be charged with a Felony. Sure like to see that passed along with about 1/2 dozen other PRO-GUN / PRO-LIBERTY Bills that have been entered for this session of the MO Gen Assy. Wish us Luck! Democrat Gov. Nixon probably won't sign any and I suspect he'd Veto Leara's Felony Level Bill...out of pure sight. He hasn't sign past good bills concerning CCW and other positive changes, but left them to become law by Default on the last day of the Session. COWARDLY if you ask me.

    INTERIM UPDATE
    Fellow Citizens of MO and Mbrs of this Forum:

    "In Missouri, HB 436 and it’s companion Senate bill, SB 325, would nullify all federal violations of your right to keep and bear arms. Please act now to support this legislation.

    Either this coming Tuesday or the following Tuesday HB 436, the Second Amendment Preservation Act, will have a public hearing in the House General Laws Committee. This committee is predisposed to support this bill, but we need to send a message of strong support that will resonate throughout the Capitol.

    HB 436 Funderburk, Doug
    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(LR# 1204L.01I)

    Here's the link with a suggestion to complete a "Witness Form" to either support or request denial of this significant piece of legislation.
    http://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2013/02/missouri-act-now-to-help-nullify-federal-gun-laws-in-your-state/

    Addendum: I basically 'gave the Legislature a several pieces of my mind'. I encourage even the timid and meek to speak up and let your 'voice' be heard. Thanks for considering. -Spoon-

    26 FEB Data: Both Missouri HB 162 and HB 170 rec'd the recommendation for DO PASS. No future activity currently showing on the calendar. When this will be formally read on the Floor and put up for a vote, I dunno.

    There's also a bill in process mandating a Govt-issued Photo ID to be shown before being allowed to cast a ballot. I'm sure there may have been a few cases of hanky-panky, but not like seen in FLUSA and other states where 107-140+ percent of the 100% of registered voters...voted? Best bet is to make it all part of the process to confirm who is whom.

    Stay tuned fellow Missourians.

    A day early for this one & SB 325.

    This Joint Resolution allegedly has both right and left are in agreement on getting this done!

    SB 325 is FINALLY On the MO Senate calendar for Committee @1430 today. It is expected to move to the floor for a vote soon thereafter. I've hoped and prayed for the kind of guts and drive shown the Missouri’s combined legislative bodies in D.C., but we all know that it would only happen under threat of actually experiencing a very real "physically severe duress" by each and every member that's gunning for our Rights!

Time will tell if the clock doesn't expire before they come together on 2A measures as well as some other things that need fix'n.

    ***Here's the kicker: This morning (18 Apr 2013) This KEY ACT comes up for Final Vote! It should pass easily, as the last action on its "Perfection" of language passed by about a 3 to 1 margin IN FAVOR. Here is a link to an article that gives some history and insight into the progressive deterioration and CONTROLLING FEDERAL ASPECTS from the 1930s, through what we've all be hearing and reading about in D.C. just yesterday:
    http://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2013/02/missouri-legislation-would-nullify-federal-gun-laws/

    After HB 436 is passed, it will go to the MO Senate where its sister bill, SB 325 is waiting.
    SB 325 - This act lists various declarations of the Missouri General Assembly regarding the United States Constitution and the scope of the federal government's authority. In addition, this act declares that federal supremacy does not apply to federal laws that restrict or prohibit the manufacture, ownership, and use of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition within the state because such laws exceed the scope of the federal government's authority. Laws necessary for the regulation of the land and the United States Armed Forces are excluded from the types of federal firearms laws that exceed federal authority.

    This act declares as invalid all federal laws that infringe on the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Article I, Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution. Some laws declared invalid under this act include the Gun Control Acts of 1934 and 1968, certain taxes, certain registration and tracking laws, certain prohibitions on the possession, ownership, use, or transfer of a specific type of firearm, and confiscation orders.

    This act declares that it is the duty of the courts and law enforcement agencies to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.

    Under this act, no public officer or state employee has the authority to enforce firearms laws declared invalid by the act. Any federal official, agent or employee who enforces any of the laws declared invalid under the act is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.

    Any Missourian who has been subject to an enforcement action involving any of the laws declared invalid by this act has a private cause of action for declaratory judgment and damages against any person or entity attempting to enforce the law.

    This act is identical to HB 436 (2013).

    Yesterday the Committee held a Hearing on HB 436 with "Witnesses" testifying both by oral and written pro/con and is expected to be passed by the House TODAY! The Senate's version SB 325 has already cleared all hurdles and it's a matter of getting them merged, ratified, and securing "Wrong Way Jay's" signature. (I'm sure you've heard the scuttlebutt about the personal information release of Drivers and CCW Holders data...hence "wrong way" tagline on Gov. Nixon.) Anywho...It's another Citizen's Rights reaffirmation and slap in the face to the Fed that ALL states should strive to achieve. I believe AZ and or OK have similar Statutes in place. Wish us luck on putting them on the books :)

    The amended language in the bill specifies:

    Current Bill Summary

    SB 325 - This act lists various declarations of the Missouri General Assembly regarding the United States Constitution and the scope of the federal government's authority. In addition, this act declares that federal supremacy does not apply to federal laws that restrict or prohibit the manufacture, ownership, and use of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition within the state because such laws exceed the scope of the federal government's authority. Laws necessary for the regulation of the land and the United States Armed Forces are excluded from the types of federal firearms laws that exceed federal authority.
    This act declares as invalid all federal laws that infringe on the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Article I, Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution. Some laws declared invalid under this act include the Gun Control Acts of 1934 and 1968, certain taxes, certain registration and tracking laws, certain prohibitions on the possession, ownership, use, or transfer of a specific type of firearm, and confiscation orders.
    This act declares that it is the duty of the courts and law enforcement agencies to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.
    Under this act, no public officer or state employee has the authority to enforce firearms laws declared invalid by the act. Any federal official, agent or employee who enforces any of the laws declared invalid under the act is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
    Any Missourian who has been subject to an enforcement action involving any of the laws declared invalid by this act has a private cause of action for declaratory judgment and damages against any person or entity attempting to enforce the law.
    This act is identical to HB 436 (2013).

    Progress seems bogged down :confused: This collection of proposed Bills/Acts may not be well received in DC, but reflects the majority of citizens in Missouri's attitude, understanding and feelings about the 2nd's import to personal security & Liberty.

    I don't know if it's stuck in the mud and been over-ridden by other matters that the MO Senate boss Mr. Richard favors or what. There's talk of a filibuster and since time's running short, he may be waiting to keep from wasting time that can/will be applied toward other matters. MO First has asked the citizens of Missouri to write a short letter to Sen. Richards expressing concern and support:
    Senator Ron Richard
    201 W Capitol Ave., Rm. 321
    Jefferson City, Missouri 65101

    Additionally, The People in MO are just a wee bit ticked with the Governor's Folly whereas the State released PRIVATE INFO from CCW & DMV records to the long-nosed evil doers in D.C. Fires up, lids on the kettle and something's got to give...soon??? It was all set up a while back under the "National ID Program" so Big Bro could monitor us all. Not how America was intended to be run. Smells kinda Nazi Germany circas 1930s:mad:

    Missouri's 2nd Amendment Act Awaits Gov. Nixon's Signature???

    A bit tardy with this week's update...but

    Bill String: SCS HCS HB 436

    Now it's up to Missouri's Governor to sign it...or let it collect dust until 28 Aug when it will become law and he has "plausible" excuses that he wasn't involved. His administration is already in enough HOT WATER.

    IF any of you are interested...here's a link to the Bill that should become an Act and be incorporated into Missouri Statutes:
    http://www.house.mo.gov/billtracking/bills131/biltxt/senate/1204S.04C.htm


    All the others I've had listed have become part of this exceptionally strong stance by the folks from the SHOW ME State Just awaiting the uncharged "gun runner" Holder to start trying to assail the Gov, the MO Gen. Assy and of course, ME, SWO1 and others in Missouri that I can't recall their screen names. Liberty still alive here :D

    They got the one combined bill that basically says, "Screw the Feds and their Gun Control Laws" passed and onto the Gov's desk just before the legislative session ended. Gov. Nixon has until 15 July to Veto or sign his approval. If he's afraid to touch it one way or the other, it will become law on 28 August 2013.

    The Bill is wording so clearly that some of the libtards are calling it a secessionists' move. By Constitutional and Supreme Court muster, any state can refute/refuse a Federal Law. It'll be interesting IF and when this goes on the books. It's the most harsh rebuttal to federal intrusion to date of all the states.

    I won't post any more timely updates until I hear that Nixon "nix'd it", approved it or it gathers dust awaiting the August default date. Spoon
