The Missouri Senate has given first-round approval to legislation to nullify federal gun-control laws.So the premise, as we explained before, is that federal agents caught enforcing a gun law that Brian Nieves doesn't like (or, apparently, any federal gun law, since sponsors hope to dodge the obvious unconstitutionality of a "nullification" bill (and yes, Nieves himself calls it that) by not actually specifying which gun laws, fees, and policies they are nullifying, leaving it to the imagination of whoever's facing federal agents that day). The bill is also a three ring circus of other fetishist obsessions, lowering the conceal-carry age, allowing open carry even in state municipalities that have banned it, and permitting teachers to carry guns in schools because the only lesson we've learned from all the children murdered in schools over the past few years is that we ought to have more guns around.
The language in this year's Senate version of the Second Amendment Preservation Act has been toned down a bit. It would still nullify federal gun restrictions in Missouri, and it would charge federal officers who try to enforce those restrictions with a misdemeanor punishable by a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail.
I'm serious about this secession thing. A nullification bill is just secession done piecemeal, after all, and if your guns are more important to you than your nation your nation is better off without you. It can be the last great American migration; all we need is somewhere for Brian and the others to go.
