Unconstitutional Ruling on Missouri’s 2nd Amendment Preservation Act To Be Appealed

(Jefferson City) The State of Missouri will appeal a federal judge’s ruling that declared the Second Amendment Preservation Act unconstitutional.

The law passed two years ago banned state, county and city law enforcement from enforcing federal gun laws.

If found following those federal government laws, those police agencies would be subject to a 50-thousand-dollar fine for each violation.

Attorney General Andrew Bailey filed the appeal on behalf of Missouri.

The Missouri Attorney General had more to say.

The appeal won’t like be heard until May or June by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Meanwhile, Bailey has asked for a stay in the judge’s ruling to allow Missouri’s law to remain in place while it’s being appealed.

A decision on that request could come sometime next week.
