This is an interesting case, because here, the State Of Missouri passed a State Law in 2021, that prohibits state enforcement of certain Federal firearms restrictions.
Governor Mike Parson signed the measure into law and the lawsuit soon followed.
The state supreme court will hear the case and make their determination of if the state law is constitutional or not. If upheld this could become a great way for pro-gun states to push the Federal Programs that Biden has promoted, out of their states.
SAPA was a victory for GOP politicians and gun rights activists when it passed last year, buoyed by lawmakers’ desire to push back on gun control measures promised by President Joe Biden’s administration. SAPA declares certain federal gun laws “invalid” if they do not have an equivalent in Missouri statutes and prohibits local police from helping federal agents to enforce them. Under SAPA, police departments are subject to $50,000 lawsuits from private citizens who believe their Second Amendment rights were violated.
Since its passage Missouri police have halted a variety of routine practices that involve either firearms or the federal government. They include withdrawing from joint efforts to enforce gun or drug laws, cutting off the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from shell casing information gathered at crime scenes and, in some cases, barring officers from even talking to federal agents without permission. Robert Dierker, attorney for the local governments, told judges on Monday that the law was an “unintelligible statute.” “Any fair reading leaves a person of ordinary understanding completely at sea as to what federal laws and regulations are forbidden,” he said. Arguments before the high court Monday were largely focused on procedural issues. The local governments were rejected last summer by a Cole County judge who ruled they already had an ability to fight the law — through individual lawsuits against police, brought by those who believe their Second Amendment rights were violated.
