(Missourinet) - A bill in the Missouri senate would exempt the state from any strengthened gun regulations handed down by Congress is receiving broad support from GOP lawmakers and some Democrats.
Only one person spoke against the proposed law during a committee hearing Thursday in Jefferson City.
Sponsors of the bill say if federal agents were to try to enforce a federal guns mandate in Missouri, county sheriffs would be in charge of upholding Missouri law, since they're the chief law enforcement officer in each county.
There is an emergency clause in the bill, meaning it would become law immediately upon the governor's signature.
