Missouri State Legislation Alert: Second Amendment Rights
No Confiscation During Emergencies
The Missouri Senate today held a third reading for SB 257. This bill, if
passed, would prohibit the confiscation of lawfully possessed firearms or
ammunition during a state of emergency in Missouri.
This bill is sponsored by Senator Kevin Engler from District 3, who is
also the Majority Caucus Whip. This bill is being handled by the Judiciary
and Civil and Criminal Jurisprudence Committee.
Now, if not sooner, is definitely the time to contact your Missouri
Senator and let it be known if you support this bill.
The irony of course is that we shouldn't even need to make this a law.
It should already be taken as a given that such confiscations by government
officials and law enforcement are prohibited. However, given the government
ordered and sanctioned confiscations which have occured in recent years
during emergencies, many states are passing laws very similar if not the
same as this one.
View the online text of this bill and follow its progress.
