A Small Win for Missouri Gun Owners

The Missouri Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit brought on by Michael Bloomberg attempting to remove Senate Joint Resolution 36—Constitutional Amendment 5—from the August 5 primary election ballot. Constitutional Amendment 5 states: That the right of every citizen to keep and bear arms, ammunition, and accessories typical to the normal function of such arms, in defense of his home, person, family and property, or when lawfully summoned in aid of the civil power, shall not be questioned. The rights guaranteed by this section shall be unalienable. Any restriction on these rights shall be subject to strict scrutiny and the state of Missouri shall be obligated to uphold these rights and shall under no circumstances decline to protect against their infringement.

Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V7

Only one of four of Daniel Defense’s rifles finished in MIL-SPEC + Cerakote, the DDM47 (M4 Carbine V7) rifle goes beyond the typical black rifle. Chambered for 5.56mm NATO, the DDM47 includes a 30-round Magpul PMag and Daniel Defense’s redesigned polymer buttstock with soft grip overmolding. The upper and lower receivers are CNC-machined 7074-T6 aluminum, while the barrel, chamber and bore are cold-hammer forged. This is not where Daniel Defense’s attention to detail stops. The level of quality in the making of its bolt carrier group is unfounded. The M16-profile bolt carrier group is not only chrome-lined and MIL-SPEC MP tested, but the gas key is also chrome lined and attached with properly staked fasteners. The 12.0 Modular float handguard with three-inch Picatinny rails is Type III hard-coat anodized. Rounding out this beautiful Made in the USA rifle is a Daniel Defense pistol grip with soft overmold.

  1. HIDE BEHIND… The first time through your post I thought it was me. The second time through I thought it was you. The third time through I knew it was you but I began to decipher some of what you were saying. If I may; I appears you are in full “give-up” mode on the 2nd Amendment. You apparently believe all is lost and we should pick-up our toys and go home. I guess I can see how some would feel that way and there are some points in your posting I do agree with to be sure. Your closing statement about the police is on the money. I worked directly with several PDs over the last 30 years in investigations and training and I can tell you without reservation that the police motto to Protect and Serve is little more than words. Yes there are good cops but as a group the dishonesty and bullying of the Police is scary and something I never talk about in detail.

    Anyway all that being said I don’t think it time to give-up regardless of the way things are going. Frankly never will. I am reminded of something I heard once regarding authority. I am afraid I need to paraphrase but it was something like this:
    THE ONLY AUTHORITY A PERSON OR A GOVERNMENT HAS OVER YOU IS THE AUTHORITY YOU GRANT THEM.
    I DO NOT GRANT ANYONE THE AUTHORITY TO TAKE MY RIGHTS FROM ME…………..

  2. The political fight over weapons is finally coming to an end, an end that means far less weapons in private hands and those hands will of greased the palms and crotches of their betters many times.
    The 2nd Amendment and its militia clause have been deleted and the mention of “enemies foreign” now ends right there.
    Under the courts interpretations of “Self Defence ” as an issue of Second Amendment it is now an issue that each state can set the parameters. Just as long as it meets Hellers and does not deny right to have weapon for self defence then there is no further cause to involve the Higher courts.
    The campaign portfolios of each states money laundering political hacks will be main benefactors and one where the gun owners are most assured of recieving less bang for their bucks because of a thoroughly corrupt GOP party and no wheres else to beg for mercy.
    The “divided we fall” meme comes to mind each time I hear gun
    advocates cheer the buisness that is run out of a state and relocates to a
    more gun friendly landscape.
    Gun owners have now given up power of national numbers of gun membership and are now are running and abandoning those gun owners
    in anti states
    All done because of political defeats and in order to try and save their own
    asses, and lets admit it, their remaining assets by relocation.
    The lines of priveledge are already in place to some extent as members of political office holders and US Military and all its and national itelligence peoples, and certain judges and legal system employees are almost exempt from rules and restrictions that apply ot those outside their exalted status.
    That status is today mostly federal but it uner new corporate person hood wand each states needs can be extended to favorites at will.
    There are no longer the equal clauses to protect the sovereignty of the individual as the individual is no longer existent other than through officialy granted personhood.
    If one looks closely at police demeanors today then you see what granting of priveleges can lead too abuse and arrogance until it is them or us and they honestly believe they are not civilians but above them; Sadly the nations judicial systems courts now say they are

  3. if Constitutional Amendment 5 passes I’ll be leaving
    Minnesota for Missouri. God Knows you will never see legislation like that in this state.
