The Tenth Amendment Center is promoting the Second Amendment Preservation Act all across the country. They have been responsible for several states filing SAPA bills.

They say that the Missouri version if the gold standard for anti-commandeering defense against federal gun control.

They know their stuff and they are monitoring HB 85, Missouri's SAPA.

Read what they have to say about the Missouri Sheriffs' Association's opposition to SAPA.

In reference to a recent set of suggestions for amendments (please read this) to HB 85, the Tenth Amendment Center says:


It is clear from these changes that the MSA has no desire to stop federal gun control. In fact, it appears they want to craft a bill that will empower state and local police to cooperate not only with the enforcement of all existing gun control but every federal gun law that comes down the pike in the future.

When the MSA lobbyists claim to care about the Second Amendment, they are lying. Period.

They are not behaving like people who actually want meaningful protections from a federal gun grab. All they seem to care about is protecting their turf and maintaining cash chow that comes from partnering up with the feds. If there is any doubt about this, read the change to the legislative findings in HB85 proposed by the MSA.
Read their whole article here: Missouri Sheriffs’ Association Working to Kill 2nd Amendment Preservation Act | Tenth Amendment Center

From my perspective here on the front lines, I can't disagree with the conclusion of this article.

Your sheriff is probably more committed to protecting your gun rights than the Sheriffs' Association is, so perhaps you should encourage him to tell the Association leadership to back off!


HEARING FOR HB 85 Tuesday, March 30.

In the mean time, the Senate General Laws Committee will be holding a hearing for HB 85 Tuesday. I honestly can't tell you whether the bill will come out of that committee gutted or not.

Let the Republicans on the committee know what you think. Should the MSA get their way or should we pass a strong bill with enforcement provisions?

On the same day President Joe Biden launched his gun control initiative, the Second Amendment Preservation Act passed another major milestone when the Senate General Laws Committee (chaired by Sen. Bill Eigel) voted 6 to 2 to "do pass" HB 85 and send it on to the full Senate.

The committee approved a "Senate Committee Substitute" that was the result of weeks of study and negotiating with stakeholders, especially law-enforcement interests.

Follow this link to read the actual bill text and a "change log" that explains the differences between this version and the version passed by the House: www.mofirst.org/issues/docs/SCS-HB85-0767S_09C.pdf

We had to make a few compromises that I would have preferred not to make, but MO SAPA is still the strongest SAPA I know about among the 15 or so states that are following our lead. It still makes it illegal for ALL Missouri officials to provide any assistance in the enforcement of ALL federal gun controls laws against honest citizens.

And HB 85 still includes a private cause of action (e.g. citizens can sue), so you don't have to wait for government to protect you from the government. The bills specifies a $50,000 penalty, per occurrence, plus court costs when a citizen prevails.

HB 85 still protects law enforcement officers when their superiors make them choose between their job and honoring their oath of office by telling them they have to help Joe Biden with his gun-grabbing agenda.


THE NEXT CHALLENGE

The next step for HB 85 is for Senator Dave Schatz to ask for the bill to be reported out of committee and then place it on the Senate HOUSE BILLS ON THIRD READ Calendar.

If you check out that calendar, you'll see that there is only one House bill listed. That's because Senator Schatz is refusing to move most House bills until the House takes up his bill (SB 262) to raise the motor fuel tax.

This year's legislative session will over on May 14th, so any delays getting SAPA to the Senate floor and passed is just not acceptable.


ACTION ITEM

The ball is in Senator Schatz court, so tell him not to put a fuel tax increase ahead of his duty (see Article I Section 23) to defend our 2nd Amendment rights.

Here's Senator Schatz web page and contact info: Senator Dave Schatz – Missouri Senate

Biden is backing a gun control bill that eliminates gun manufacturers’ exemption from consumer products safety laws. Doing so will invite an extortionary law suit every time someone is killed or injured with a gun. Insurance companies will quit writing insurance policies for gun manufacturers and gun manufacturers will be forced to close shop. Moving to another country won’t stop the law suits.

but if a state adopts a no fault clause in their 2A PA wouldn't that help bring those manufacturing sights to MO?

I see Arizona just signed theirs

The committee that had been holding up SAPA met today and voted out HB 85, the House version of the Second Amendment Preservation Act.

It is fourth on the "House Bills for Third Read" calendar in the senate. The next step is to go before the whole Senate for final approval by that body. We expect that process to go smoothly, since last week's trial run of the Senate version went so well.

HB 85 will probably go to the Senate floor early next week.

Once it passed the Senate, it will need one more vote in the House, but that should be easy.

If you want to help, the best thing you can do at this point is call your Senator and tell him or her to vote for the Second Amendment Preservation Act with no additional amendment.

need your help killing SB 63 in the Missouri House of Representatives. Please call and email your state rep now and pass this on to your pro 2nd Amendment friends. Missouri House of Representative - Members

SB 63 has passed all the hurdles and needs only one more vote on the House floor. It could be brought up as early as today.

Ever since one of the most liberal Democrats in the Senate introduced the first PDMP bill in Missouri about 15 years ago, we have been killing this legislation, but today this bill is closer than ever to passing.

Among the many reasons this government database of your prescription drug purchases is a bad idea is our argument that the data collected on you could be used to deny your 2nd Amendment rights.

Now we have proof.

Through executive order President Obama had the rules regulating the HIPAA law to expressly allow personal health data to be included in the FBI instant background check system used any time you buy a gun from a dealer. (NICS)

HIPAA rule change

Download the whole rule change here: http://www.mofirst.org/issues/docs/HIPAA-Rule-Change-NICS.pdf

Note that SB 63 expressly saysthat PDMP data can be used in ways that the federal HIPAA law permits, and since 2016 the HIPAA Privacy Rule allows your personal health information to be shared with the FBI for the express purpose of denying your right to bear arms.

Please make your calls and send emails now.

In liberty,

- Ron

Governor Mike Parson issued a media advisory this afternoon announcing that he will be signing HB 85, the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA) on Saturday, June 12 at 2:00 pm in Lee's Summit, MO.

The signing will be open to the public, but since it will be indoors, space will be limited.

Here's the location:
Frontier Justice
800 NE Jones Industrial Park
Lee's Summit, MO 64064
Parson also announced that he will be streaming the signing live on his Facebook page.

Because HB 85 has an emergency clause, it will take effect immediately upon signing. (Here's the final verson of HB 85.)

Look for another email from me about what changes with the enactment of SAPA. The most important thing to understand, though, is that this bill ONLY prevents Missouri officials from enforcing or assisting with the enforcement of federal gun control laws against law-abiding Missourians. It does not prevent federal authorities from enforcing federal laws on their own.

SAPA is designed to prevent wholesale federal gun control, like an "assault weapon" confiscation, since such an effort would require cooperation from local officials.

This is a landmark event. Although other states have recently passed their versions of SAPA, they have all been watered down with limited application or a lack of accountability to violators. After Saturday, Missouri will have the strongest SAPA in the country, what the Tenth Amendment Center calls the "gold standard" of SAPA laws.
