The war over the future of our country may actually begin right smack dab in the middle of it.
Always known as a hard-tack place where good, down-to-earth folk live (and, generally, let live — with the exception of St. Louis and Kansas City), Missourians don’t really bother people too much.
But the courtesy goes both ways: Folks shouldn’t bother them, either.
And yet, the Biden regime wants to bother Missourians. And the rest of the country too — with new gun control laws.
We already see them coming.
In Missouri, though, GOP lawmakers and Gov. Mike Parsons are heading Biden’s gun controllers off at the pass.
They’ve passed a new law that tells the Biden regime where they can do if they believe they’re going to enforce new, unconstitutional gun control laws in the Show-Me State.
Trending Politics reports:
Once again, a Democratic regime is cherry-picking states to force into compliance with the U.S. Constitution while holding aloft the founding document's 'Supremacy Clause.'
Per Civics 101, the clause stems from Article VI, Paragraph 2, which 'establishes that the federal constitution, and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws, and even state constitutions,' Cornell Law School notes in its online 'splainer.
'It prohibits states from interfering with the federal government's exercise of its constitutional powers, and from assuming any functions that are exclusively entrusted to the federal government,' the 'splainer notes further.
This is relevant again because the Biden regime has its dander up over a new measure signed into law on Thursday by Missouri Republican Gov. Mike Parsons. Called the 'Second Amendment Preservation Act,' the measure prevents local police in the Show-Me State from assisting federal agents in enforcing federal firearms laws.
'The Second Amendment Preservation Act is about protecting law-abiding Missourians against government overreach and unconstitutional federal mandates,' Parsons wrote in a letter to the Justice Department.
'We will reject any attempt by the federal government to circumvent the fundamental right Missourians have to keep and bear arms to protect themselves and their property. Throughout my career, I have always stood for the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and that will not change today or any day,' he added.
This doesn’t make the regime happy, Fox News adds:
In a letter sent Wednesday night and obtained by The Associated Press, Justice officials said the U.S. Constitution's Supremacy Clause outweighs the measure that Parson signed into law Saturday. The new rules penalize local police departments if their officers enforce federal gun laws.
Boynton said the law threatens to disrupt the working relationship between federal and local authorities, they said in the letter, noting that Missouri receives federal grants and technical assistance.
'The public safety of the people of the United States and citizens of Missouri is paramount,' Boynton wrote in the letter.
‘Public safety,’ my ass.
Biden’s regime doesn’t care about public safety. If they did, they’d seal the border and start rounding up illegal alien criminals like Donald Trump was doing — instead of ignoring “sanctuary cities.”
Some legal experts have speculated that Missouri ‘can’t do this.’ The cite Supreme Court ‘precedence.’
Here’s something to think about: What if Missouri’s governor and legislature don’t give a damn about ‘Supreme Court precedence?’
