From Missouri First: A lot has been going on behind the scenes the last few weeks with the Second Amendment Preservation Act. The Senate version has passed in the Senate and needs only one more vote by the House, if it’s not amended, and it will go to the Governor’s desk.
Since passing the Senate, however, ways of greatly improving the effectiveness of the bill have been discovered, and the House version of SAPA (HB 1439) is the vehicle for those improvements. The Senate version (SB 613) is being held in reserve, just in case something happens to HB 1439.
Be sure to read more at the Missouri First SAPA Resource Page for an explanation of the improvements to be considered at the Senate General Laws Committee meeting this coming Tuesday. Read the proposed substitute here: Proposed-SCS-HCS-HB1439.pdf
The Hearing on Tuesday, April 15, is with the General Laws Committee (Senator Brian Nieves, Chairman). Please fill out your witness form now, as these will be hand-delivered to the committee. We need hundreds of witness forms to show you still demand action!
