The Governor signed SB75 into law today. I am pissed beyond words. Rep. Curtman's HB420 was made an amendment on HB436 (Nullification), the highest risk 2A bill sent to the Governor which of course he vetoed. NO SURPRISE THERE. Even if there is a veto over ride chances are the federal Government will seek an action to nullify HB436 and most likely include the amendment HB420 as well.
My effort on HB420 was 3+ years in the making and trying to get it passed. I feel betrayed and set up for a loss after much work and dedication in seeking support for this bill.
If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!
I worked 24/7 for 2A OC rights! Don't like what I did? Try it yourself, it was my full time job!

This the bill that requires a candidate for sheriff to be a peace officer first?
HCS/SB 75 - This act modifies provisions relating to public safety.
SHERIFFS: This act provides that no person will be eligible for the office of sheriff unless he or she holds a valid peace officer license under Chapter 590. Any person filing for the office must have the license at the time of filing. These provisions do not apply to St. Louis County or St. Louis City. (Section 57.010)
I think that this is rubbish .... anyone should be able to run for the office ... just one thing I saw that I did not like .... its a very long bill ...
Gunner, I wish the OC amendment had been placed on multiple bills.
David, agreed; limiting sheriff to peace officer is not necessary.
I haven't read the 75 text yet. From the summary we have some of the protections about CC permits data and lower requirements, but I'm not sure if they go as far as the corresponding in 436. Need to compare.
436 is a great package with the nullification. We should still hope for an over ride because federal injunction or not, it's a powerful message that needs to be delivered. And the OC.
Now, I have no idea who all else (if anyone) was in on the decision to add the amendment to HB436 as opposed to other bills.
