Missouri Vote on Second Amendment Preservation Act

February 25, 2013
GodGunsIn a culture caught up in firearm fear, fueled by the mainstream media, state officials are positioned to vote on legislation to preserve the very life of the Second Amendment in Missouri.  
HB 436, sponsored by Rep. Doug Funderburk, (R)- St. Charles County, is the strongest protection of the right to keep and bear arms in the entire nation
The hearing for HB 436, originally slated for a vote Tuesday, February 26, is now expected in public hearing, March 5th at 12:00 in Hearing Room 4, but the official hearing schedule will not be published until later this week. This provides a greater opportunity for Missouri residents to voice their support of their Second Amendment rights by filling out a witness form.
From perhaps the most patriotic lobbyist in Missouri, Ron Calzone at Missouri First:
Details about HB 436 & and it’s companion Senate bill  SB 325Since the 10th Amendment makes it clear that all powers not granted to the federal government are reserved to the states and the People, the regulation of the ownership of arms is a state, not a federal matter.That applies to ALL such regulation.

We must demand from our legislators no less than the strongest, most principled stand they can take to defend our right to keep and bear arms!

Rep. Doug Funderburk and Sen. Brian Nieves’ “Second Amendment Preservation Act” is the strongest and most principled protection of the right to keep and bear arms in the nation!.

Notice that it utilizes the words of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison to explain Missouri’s authority to nullify unconstitutional federal edicts within her borders. Including this language is essential to the success of the bill. It also specifically lists the types of things we will not put up with, and that’s what gives state officials the “cover” they need to enforce the bill.

Tenth Amendment Center article about HB 436.

What you can do:

  1. Right NOW, either plan to attend the hearing for HB 436 (time to be announced), or fill out the online witness form..
  2. Pass on this email or another with the generic witness form link to as many liberty loving people as you can.
  3. If you have any personal contact with your rep or senator ask them to commit to supporting these bills.

Ron has upped the ante offering to hand deliver your witness form and also make your testimony available online for the committee to read. You can email your witness form and additional testimony directly to Ron at ron@mofirst.org

Rep Roorda and His Respect for Citizens on the House Floor

I just received this in my inbox:

I was standing about 10 feet above Roorda in the House Gallery when he made one of his ‘Tea Bagger’ remarks, loudly, to the Rep standing next to him, something like “That’s pissing off the tea baggers!”. On the floor of the House, about the people he supposedly was there to represent, that were there to watch and support their lawmakers engaging in the political process.

Classy guy.

Classy indeed! Not to be crude Mr Roorda, but you could only wished to get tea bagged by one of us.

Poor guy.

What say you, Rep Roorda? Deny your words? I’m sure we can have the transcripts pulled…

MO Lawmaker Wants Mandated Close of Business for Thanksgiving

Heh. I’m really not sure what more to say to this. Missouri House member Jeff Roorda, of Barnhart, wants to BAN businesses from opening early for Black Friday shopping events under what he has dubbed it the “Thanksgiving Family Protection Act.”

Shut the Front Door! What? More government mandation of the private sector? Further attacks on the economy while well-within the downturn of a continuing economic depression?
Whoa! Not to mention the fact that apparently people can not think for themselves.
First of all, a corporation that would REQUIRE any employee to *show up or walk* on Thanksgiving for Christmas shoppers obviously has no understanding of what Christmas is about…aside from their bottom line…and deserves to have employees en masse abandon.
Secondly, maybe there are some folks who would actually prefer to work on Thanksgiving. Consider the gentleman who has watched the rest of his family die off, and faces their first holiday alone? What about the addict who could be pushed over the edge by too much “family time” and pre-plans an honest out?
But what about business owners? You know, job creators? How about we mandate them just a little more to search…not only to infringe upon their rights just another step at a time, but to step on their toes as loudly as possibleo in yet another act if intimidation.

Finally, “Thanksgiving Family Protection Act”??? I’m sorry, pardon me as I wipe the spewed tea off my monitor! Perhaps it is further legislation such as this, that the people and business owners of Missouri need protection from!
Those of us who do not buy into this ridiculous blather understand the meaning of “thanksgiving”, the meaning of “family” and the meaning of “protection” without your pathetic attempt at abusive legislation which flies in the face if every protective Constitutional freedom we have.
Of course, I am being just a bit harsh…after all, what would be left of last-minute Thanksgiving corner runs for the forgotten bread if you didn’t exempt those less worthy of a rightful Thanksgiving celebration with their family… which is solely dependent upon the zoning laws if their place of business.
I mean, come on people! Who is not with Rep Roorda on this?
*GASP*!!!!
Shocker!
