Missouri Attorney General To Appeal Judges Ruling On Second Amendment Preservation Act
Missouri is in the process of appealing a federal judge’s ruling that declared the Second Amendment Preservation Act, or SAPA, unconstitutional. The law passed two years ago banned state and local law enforcement from enforcing federal gun laws, with local agencies subject to a 50-thousand-dollar fine for each violation. Attorney General Andrew Bailey filed the appeal on behalf of Missouri:
In addition to the appeal, Bailey has asked the judge to stay his decision, allowing the law to remain in place during the appeals process. A decision on that request is expected sometime next week. The appeal itself is expected to be heard by the 8th US Circuit Court of Appeals in either May or June.
