“Missouri law enforcement officials are asking the General Assembly to revise the state’s new Second Amendment act that prohibits them from helping enforce certain federal gun laws, telling lawmakers that it is hindering their ability to conduct criminal investigations. The law’s ‘wording and structure have caused confusion and potentially unintended legal implications,’ the Missouri Police Chiefs Association (MCPA) wrote in an October letter to Republican legislative leaders and the bill’s sponsors. … In the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Star, the MPCA proposes specifying that the law would only apply to new federal gun restrictions approved after this past August, and that it doesn’t apply to suspects whom police encounter committing a crime.” (11/22/21)
