    Missouri House Bill 436

    The Missouri House passed HB 436 known as the Second Amendment Preservation Act. This actually restores some of my lost hope about civilization going down the proverbial toilet.

    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.

    Lines 51 and 52 say:

    We deny any claim that the taxing and spending powers of Congress can be used to diminish in any way the people's right to keep and bear arms....
    Taken together with other language claiming the sole authority of the State of Missouri to regulate manufacture etc. of firearms, it would seem that MO is now set up to license manufacturers within the state to produce full-autos that are only sold within the state to MO residents, and ignore the $400 tax stamp, registration requirements etc. That's the way I read it anyway.

    Do you think that's what it says, weekendskp, and if so, do you think the legislature intended that meaning, and further if so on that point, do you expect in-state full-autos to become available in coming months/years?

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    Of course, I'm no attorney; I only play one on TV, but CMMG recently moved to MO, and they sell silencers. You could buy one from them, and not be required to have the tax stamp. I do think the language is inentional. If the law passes as written, one could manufacture, machine, fabricate any type of firearm not specifically illegal according to Missouri Revised Statutes, and no one from the BATFE could say, "boo". I'd say Missouri could very well give Texas a run for their money in attracting gun and gun accessory manufacturers to the state.
