JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Law enforcement officers from across the state want clarification on a new law that makes federal gun laws “null.”
The Second Amendment Preservation Act, or SAPA, went into effect at the end of August. It invalidated federal gun laws and allowed police departments to be sued for up to $50,000 for violations. someone’s Second Amendment rights. It also confused law enforcement, affecting how officers protected Missourians. Some departments have even severed ties with federal task forces as a result.
“If the court can give us some clear explanation, we can get back to business as usual but right now it’s caused a lot of confusion and concern,” said the executive board member. Missouri Sheriff’s Association executive Chris DiGuiseppi said. “People just want answers to this.”
One of the most controversial bills, House Bill 85, passed by the General Assembly over the past year is causing hesitation. The new law “prohibits state and local cooperation with federal officials to attempt to enforce any law, rule, order, or action that violates Missourian Second Amendment rights.”
DiGiuseppi said: “I have known leaders who have had to resign from the drug task force. “When you talk about a federal task force, most of that task force is made up of city or county or state police officers.”
