Tonight, the Missouri State House voted to send Governor Jay Nixon what could arguably be the strongest defense against federal gun control measures in American history. The vote was 116-38.
The votes in both the House and Senate are by a strong veto-proof majority. Local activist Matt Radcliffe acknowledged as much when he said, "Governor Nixon can do nothing and it will automatically become law July 1st. Or he can sign it into law. or he can veto it then his veto will be overridden in the house and it will become law anyway!"
