Someone set us up the bomb Yeah, reads like a random collection of words, but it isn’t. From the News Tribune:
Cole County Sheriff Greg White said Thursday heâ€™s pleased lawmakers failed to override Gov. Jay Nixonâ€™s veto of a controversial gun rights bill.
â€śAmong other errors, this bill could have potentially allowed illegal immigrants to purchase firearms,â€ť White explained. â€śIt needs work and Iâ€™m glad that we get another session to correct some issues.â€ť
The bill â€” House Bill 436 â€” was called the â€śSecond Amendment Preservation Act,â€ť and included language prohibiting law officers from enforcing any federal laws or regulations â€śwhether past, present, or future, which infringe on the peopleâ€™s right to keep and bear arms …â€ť
I posted about this bill and one of its problems here and from the comments, you all were in agreement with me.
So, as Sheriff White says, they should go back to the drafting table and get it right.
