MO: Judge denies challenge to Missouri gun law
Submitted">Mark A. Taff


In their statement from June 22, Burlison and Taylor expressed confidence that SAPA could withstand any legal challenges.

"From the 1842 court decision of Prigg vs. Pennsylvania, to Printz vs. the United States, and most recently, NFIB vs. Sebelius, the courts have consistently ruled that there is a prohibition of federal usurpation, or "commandeering" of state resources," Burlison and Taylor wrote. "Law enforcement agencies cannot be forced into doing the work of the federal government, especially when such work is unconstitutional in the hearts and minds of many Missourians."

Burlison said that some of the legal research leading up to House Bill 85's passage in 2021 dated back to about a decade before the bill's adoption.

The Supremacy Clause isn't a blank check, it contains a very specific limitation.

"This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States WHICH SHALL BE MADE IN PURSUANCE THEREOF...." (emphasis mine)

Clearly, prima facie federal violations of black-letter constitutional limitations are NOT "made in pursuance thereof," hence cannot supersede state law.

One need go no further than that - it is FULL STOP.


Liberty is paramount. Government is an afterthought.

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.

Liberals are people who stand on their heads and insist that the world is upside-down.
