Former Prosecutor Whines About “Constitutional Carry” Interfering With His War on Drugs

“[T]he Missouri Sheriffs’ Association aggressively lobbied to gut the Second Amendment Preservation Act recently passed in Missouri. The MSA claimed that banning them from enforcing current federal gun control — and anything new from the Biden administration — would stop them from ‘catching criminals.’ This is a typical law enforcement scare tactic. In reality, these law enforcement lobby groups are primarily concerned with preserving their ‘federal partnerships’ along with all of the federal grant money, asset forfeiture money, and power that go along with them. Almost all of these ‘partnerships’ revolve around the federal ‘war on drugs,’ which, by the way, is unconstitutional. If you doubt this, ask yourself why it required a constitutional amendment to prohibit alcohol nationally. Why is marijuana any different?” (07/14/21)
