Missouri Supreme Court Hears SAPA Gun Law Case

(Missourinet) The Missouri Supreme Court is now considering Missouri’s controversial gun law called the Second Amendment Preservation Act, or SAPA.  The lawyer for St. Louis and two of the state’s most populous counties made the case Monday, against the Second Amendment Preservation Act, saying it’s causes confusion when it comes to state and federal law enforcement cooperation.
