As radical anti-gunner Joe Biden has been officially sworn-in as president, a pair of southern states is making moves to protect their residents’ Second Amendment rights.
In Missouri, State Sen. Eric Burlison (R-Battlefield) has introduced Senate Bill 39 to establish a Second Amendment Preservation Act. Burlison said Biden will try to enact “gun bans directly, magazine bans, attacks on private gun manufacturers, red flag laws and restrictions on individual citizens from buying firearms,” reports Missourinet.com
The bill’s language declares, in part, “… as invalid all federal laws that infringe on the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Article I, Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution. Some laws declared invalid under this act include certain taxes, certain registration and tracking laws, certain prohibitions on the possession, ownership, use, or transfer of a specific type of firearm, and confiscation orders.”

In Arkansas, State Senator Bob Ballinger has introduced Senate Bill 59 to create the Arkansas Second Amendment Liberties Safeguard Act. Were it to become law, the act would “…[give] Arkansas courts a tool to use if they deem the federal government has over reached on any potential gun regulations,” reports Fox16.
“They see and administration that’s promised to come out and violate their constitutional rights, and so what we’re going to do is try to do what we can to protect that,” Ballinger said.
