Missouri Senate's '2nd Amendment Preservation Act' stripped of poison pill

As for why the NRA might oppose such legislation, perhaps it's simple tactical concerns--perhaps they don't see such laws ever surviving the inevitable federal court fight, and thus don't want the gun rights movement burning political capital for nothing--the "Vulcan chess masters" explanation. Somewhat similar thinking was apparently at the heart of their original obstruction of what eventually became the District of Columbia v. Heller case. On the other hand, perhaps they see more moneymaking potential in fighting the gun rights war, than in winning it.

For now, though, if the NRA was hoping to kill SB 613, they are just as disappointed as the anti-gun, federal government ├╝ber alles nanny-statists. [More]
