NPR Cookie Consent and Choices (65)

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson signed a new bill into law that claims to invalidate all federal gun control laws — and prohibits state and local cooperation with enforcement of those laws. But can a state actually invalidate a federal law? No.

not without leaving the union they cannot. So what are you saying there Missouri?

Every governor in the country should should sign such a bill!

kristiwelshies Missouri politicians seem to prefer anarchy.

Not only are they not going to help the feds enforce the law but there's a 50k fine if they do. So... you know how dangerous killers are arrested and the first charge is illegal possession of a firearm? They get them off the street while they organize the other charges. No more.

But it can refuse to enforce them.

Four people were shot — one fatally — as a gunman went on a shooting spree in the northwest suburbs of Phoenix, police said. Several other people were hurt by shrapnel and debris.

Ban guns

I don't remember this many shootings in the 1970's when I grew up yet at that point I believe a higher % of americans owned guns. It's not the guns, its more people who don't GAF.

Im certain it has nothing to do with 1,000,000 unknown persons who crossed into AZ illegally since Joe, nor the 100,000 felons released from prison since Joe, or the millions of laws no longer enforced since Joe

Ironically just legalize all weapons of war. Lapierre is not immune. NRA FoxNews GOP

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ordered his government to be fully prepared for confrontation with the United States. U.S.-led talks aimed at dismantling North Korea's nuclear program have been stalled for more than two years.

But there were lovely letters



So Captain Wack A Mole saw leaders meeting around the world and needed attention I see.

Joe has officially shown weakness. Remember when all democrats said was “Donald Trump is going to start more wars” well all of that is actually happening under Biden. Trump started no wars. He actually ended a war. Trump2024

Biden needs to go over there and salute their generals. That’ll teach them! 🤣
