Legislation establishing a Second Amendment Preservation Act has been heard by a Missouri House committee today (Tuesday). Nixa GOP State Representative Jered Taylor is sponsoring the bill, which declares it’s the duty of the courts and law enforcement agencies to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. Taylor clashed with St. Louis Democratic State Representative Peter Merideth during the hearing:

Taylor’s bill is similar to the Senate version that’s sponsored by Battlefield State Senator Eric Burlison. Bill supporters predict that President Biden’s administration will push for gun control.
