Missouri Legislature Overrules Leftist Governor’s Veto Of Law Allowing Teachers To Be Armed In School

Missouri Legislature Overrules Dem Governor’s Veto, Provides Huge Gun Rights Victory – TPNN

.

.
Our system of government was designed with a redundancy of checks and balances. In recent years, Democrats have charged Republicans with supposed obstruction and have maintained that their unwillingness to rubber-stamp the president’s agenda is, somehow, an anti-American concept when, in reality, blocking bad ideas from becoming law is a tremendously American idea upon which our system of government relies.

Similarly, across the country, there have been battles in state legislatures as one party battles another. Recently, Missouri passed legislation that would allow schools to train teachers in the use of firearms and allow such teachers to defend students from a would-be attacker.

The legislation, SB 656, was vetoed by Democrat Governor Jay Nixon. With regards to his veto, Nixon stated, “Arming teachers will not make our schools safer. I have supported and will continue to support the use of duly authorized law enforcement officers employed as school resource officers, but I cannot condone putting firearms in the hands of educators who should be focused on teaching our kids.”

What’s amazing is that every time a “bad guy with a gun” seeks to create carnage, the defenseless are forced to run, hide and cower and pray that a trained “good guy with a gun” makes it to the scene in time to save their life. What this legislation accomplishes is exactly that plus offering the added benefit of a deterrent effect.

I ask: how many would-be shooters would be willing to wage an assault on a school knowing that there are trained, armed teachers everywhere? This legislation will save lives.

However, our representative democracy prevailed as this week, Missouri’s House and Senate voted to override the governor’s veto and the legislation is set to become law.

The House voted to overrule the governor 117 to 39 and the Senate voted to overrule Nixon 23 to 8.

SB 656 doesn’t just arm teachers, but makes adjustments to current laws concerning concealed carrying of firearms. It disallows public housing authorities to infringe upon “a lessee or a member of the lessee’s immediate household or guest [to] personally [possess] firearms.”

It further augments the places in which open and concealed carry is lawful and even lowers the concealed permit requirements from 21 years of age to 19. It also prohibits healthcare professionals from inquiring about a patient’s firearm ownership.

This is a tremendous step in the right direction and an affirmation of our American values. More guns in the hands of responsible citizens has been the only tried-and-true method of lowering violent crime and the right to carry and use firearms in defense of oneself or another is a right that must be recognized and supported.

The anti-Second Amendment crowd is sure to hate this development, but for those who love freedom and have a clear understanding of our rights as Americans should rejoice at the news of this victory that is relatively undiscussed within the leftstream media.

Oh please, spare us you fake moral outrage

Saturday afternoon, an 18-year-old Black youth was shot and killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri. What followed were riots, looting, a Quick Trip was burned to the ground because nothing say s Social Justice more than destroying businesses, private property, and terrorizing people apparently. The “Community” immediately blamed police, labeling them a murderers, and screaming RAAAAACISM. And most sickening were the actions of instigators and race pimps like @marclamonthill who excused the violence and thuggery. Here are some of his Tweets

I’m glad we’re angry. Nothing would be sadder than to become accustomed to Black death. Especially among our youth…

The homicide rate among Blacks youths is appalling, but most of it is done by other Blacks youths, a point that Hill never mentions. The fact is he ignores the horror of Chicago, and Black on Black violent crime because he cannot race bait those crimes.

Michael Brown should be starting college in a few hours. Instead, he’s yet another teenager executed for being young, Black, and outside.

There he goes, he has no clue what actually happened, there are conflicting accounts from witnesses, but is he waiting to play the Race Card? Hell no, again, I wonder if he is secretly pleased that he can pimp this death for his own gain. And I doubt that he cares that his careless rhetoric does more harm to race relations, and serves to spur more looting and riots

 · 11h

At the same time, it takes a special kind of arrogance and hypocrisy to morally censure rioters in the wake of another teenager executed.

AGAIN! He defends and excuses the thuggery, and how does he KNOW that this kid was “executed”? He doesn’t no one does, but he cares nothing about that. Hill is simply playing the same game as Sharpton plays. Go stir the pot, create as much outrage as possible. To Hell with the consequences, to Hell with finding the truth BEFORE we rush to judgement. And of course, this pathetic excuse for a human being can’t miss a chance to demonize self-defense

The criminalization of Blacks in public space is compounded by laws like “Stand Your Ground,” which codify irrational fears of Black bodies.

Of course, this shooting has nothing to do with “Stand Your Ground” nothing at all. But Hill just cannot stop his inner race hustler I suppose. Gotta keep dividing people along every line possible, that is what Marxists do after all.

Gateway Pundit has a TON of info on the shooting, the riots, the looting. As for me, I can only hope that Black Americans stop listening to hate mongering bigots like Marc Lamont Hill. I hope they stop rushing to judgement, and stop excusing, in any way, the looters and thugs that take advantage of these opportunities. If the police did, indeed, murder this kid, I hope they are properly punished, but for God’s sake let’s find out what DID happen , THEN react for a change.

At Sooper Mexicans blog, he lays out some numbers that SHOULD be the story

According to FBI stats, about 5,886 blacks are murdered by other blacks per year.

That’s about 16 blacks killed by other blacks per day.

That’s about 490 blacks killed by other blacks every MONTH.

Now whether Mike Brown was wrongfully killed by cops or not, the much greater problem in the black community is blacks murdering each other, NOT white cops or cops of any color, or “white Hispanic”George Zimmermans killing them.

But that would mean actually taking a hard look at the problems of the community and doing the hard work of fixing it.

And fixing problems is NEVER a priority for race pimps. That would cut into their profits, and that just is not “Social Justice”

Missouri Legislature Passes Bill Allowing Teachers To Be Armed In Schools

Missouri Legislature Passes Bill To Allow Armed Teachers – Conservative Tribune

.

.
In the wake of the tragic 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, the safety of our children while at school has been a contentious point.

Some have called for increased gun control, echoing other cries to limit the Second Amendment’s “right to keep and bear arms.” However, those knowledgable about the issue have a different view.

Instead of restricting the right of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves (and thereby giving criminals the advantage), there have been multiple attempts to increase gun rights, including the right to carry in schools. The Missouri legislature just passed such a bill.

This bill, if signed into law, would allow vetted, trained, and qualified school faculty members to carry a weapon with the permission of the individual school district.

Via guns.com:

The bill, SB656, will allow school districts to cross-train faculty to become “School Protection Officers.” These volunteer teachers and administrators would have to have a valid Missouri concealed-carry permit and complete a Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Commission certification course. Following these steps, they would be allowed to carry on school grounds if the district opted to allow armed personnel on campus.

While this is a good step forward, it is unknown whether Gov. Nixon (D) will sign the bill into law.

[Nixon] had vetoed a nullification bill last year that included similar armed teacher language. Further, in a statement Friday, Nixon expressed reservations on the current legislation, but has stated he would review the bill.

[H/T: Brietbart]

This bill, if signed into law, would protect our children against another Sandy Hook tragedy. Teachers are responsible for the safety of their students, and this bill would enable them to more adequately protect those under their care. Therefore, we call on Gov. Nixon to make this bill a law.

Democrat Governor Of Missouri Facing Impeachment Over Order Allowing Same-Sex Marriage Tax Returns

Missouri Governor Facing Impeachment Over Order Allowing Same-Sex Marriage Tax Returns – Raw Story

A member of the Missouri House of Representatives has filed articles of impeachment against Governor Jay Nixon (D) for ordering Missouri’s Department of Revenue to accept joint tax returns filed by same-sex couples who have been legally married in other states.

.

.
According to Missourinet, Representative Nick Marshall (R-Parkville) has filed two articles of impeachment charging that Gov. Nixon issued an executive order that is a “direct violation” of Missouri’s Constitution. Further, Marshall says Nixon “misstates and misrepresents the meaning and requirements under Missouri’s constitutional and statutory law and thereby misleads the citizens of this state.”

In November of last year, Gov. Nixon issued an executive order stating that Missouri must accept such joint returns because Missouri’s tax code is tied directly to the federal government, and the state requires married couples who file joint returns to also file state taxes jointly. The office of Attorney General Chris Koster (D) has stated that Nixon’s order appears to comply with Missouri law.

Marshall, in his filing, alleges that Nixon’s order was based upon “a knowing omission of key statutory language.”

A section of the Missouri tax code that defines terms reads that terms used shall have the same meaning as when they appear in federal tax code. Rep. Marshall seized upon an additional phrase which states “unless a different meaning is clearly required by the provisions of” the Missouri tax code.

“Missouri law says a husband and wife who file a joint federal tax return shall file a combined return here in he state of Missouri,’ Marshall said. “The condition precedent for that is that they are husband and wife, and you have to ask yourself, ‘Well, how do you define husband and wife?’ You may not use the federal definition. That’s not allowed because Missouri’s Constitution does not allow you to recognize same-sex marriage.”

In 2004, Missouri voters approved Constitutional Amendment 2 which changed the definition of marriage in the state constitution as being between a man and a woman.

Marshall says that, while he is opposed to same-sex marriage, his action has nothing to do with his stance on the issue.

“My position on same-sex marriage is irrelevant. The governor’s position on same-sex marriage should be irrelevant,” he explained. “What is extremely relevant is the limitation on the powers of the Governor of the State of Missouri. He has no more right to ignore the Constitution than I do.”

The articles of impeachment, which must first be referred to a committee where, if passed, would then move on to the House, have been co-signed by seven Republican members of the House: Ron Schieber, Ken Wilson, Jeff Pogue, Kurt Bahr, Mike Moon, Rick Brattin & T.J. Berry.

Have we lost our damned minds?

Oh who could ever imagine the outrage, hurt, hyperbole, and massive outbreaks of Offendeditis, and Racial Obsession Syndrome. All over a, excuse my language, a fucking rodeo clown acting like a, wait for it, a fucking rodeo clown? All of this because  a rodeo clown put on an Obama mask? This is all it takes these days to spur the Left, and some spineless Republicans to start whining and crying about RAAAAACISM? We have not only lost our minds, we have lost our balls, spine, and collective sense of humor as a nation. The NAACP naturally, did not lose a second before trying to race pimp “Clown Gate”. They are calling for the Gestapo to march that evil rodeo clown off to a concentration camp for making fun of Dear Leader.

On Tuesday, the Missouri State National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued a statement asking for federal involvement in the case of a rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask and then asked the crowd if they’d like to see Obama run down by a bull. “The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our President are serious and warrant a full review by both the Secret Service and the Justice Department,” said State President Mary Ratliff. “Incidents involving individuals acting out with extreme violent behavior in movie theaters, schools, churches, political appearances, and outdoor events in general speaks volume to the irresponsible behavior of all the parties involved with the incendiary events at the Missouri State Fair.”

Mary  Race Pimpin' Ratliff

Mary Race Pimpin’ Ratliff

Targeting the president? Who did that?. No one incited any violence towards anybody, and Mary Ratliff, Race Pimp, damn well knows it. As to this part of her statement, all I can say is WTF woman? What are you prattling on about? Seriously, this buffoon is babbling about extreme violent behavior in churches and movie theaters? 

“Incidents involving individuals acting out with extreme violent behavior in movie theaters, schools, churches, political appearances, and outdoor events in general speaks volume to the irresponsible behavior of all the parties involved with the incendiary events at the Missouri State Fair.

Good Grief is she serious? Of course she is, she is just doing her part to keep racial tensions high so the donations keep coming in, Heaven forbid this babbling idiot have to get a real job! So, do not waste your time emailing Mary, or the Missouri NAACP, they will just call you racist and might even write Eric Holder to probe you for being a dangerous hate monger. Worse yet, a MSNBS host might make fun of you, or Joan Walsh might write something negative about you at Salon which would not be too bad since no one watches MSNBS or reads Salon. They might get the NSA to spy on you, or they might even ask Eric Holder to get those Mexican cartels he armed to come after you. Hell , they might even get Trayvon Martin’s parents to accuse you of helping Zimmerman gun down their angelic son. Of course, that would be totally false, but that does not seem to matter to them, or anyone on the Left. Hell, if you have a son, who is, say 13, they might even coax a few thugs to beat him down on a school bus and then some douche nozzle on MSNBS to say your kid deserved it because he was a snitch. And of course if ANY of those things were to happen you would deserve it because, RAAAAACISM!

But, the NAACP pulling their usual detestable stunts is not the only news worth talking about. Matt Walsh has penned an appropriate apology to our president

 

Dear President Obama,

I’m reaching out to you as a friend. I know you must be deeply hurting after what happened at the Missouri State Fair. Sure, you probably try to avoid watching the news while you’re on vacation, but I’m sure the pilot who airlifted your dog to your rental mansion in Martha’s Vineyard probably caught you up to speed (that guy is such a chatterbox). Your jaw must have hit the floor when you heard the news: A rodeo clown in Missouri poked fun at you. Yeah, I know, almost impossible to believe. The gall! The gumption! The racism! Don’t worry, the entire country erupted in outrage, Democrats and Republicans issued statements of condemnation, and now the offending clown has been banned for life from the Missouri State Fair. There will likely be “action taken” against the Missouri Rodeo Clown Association, and I do hope justice is visited upon them swiftly. I think we’re all a little sick of the Missouri Rodeo Clown Association causing trouble. It’s something new every week with those freakin’ guys.

But all of this is of no consolation. The fact is, a rodeo clown in Missouri made fun of you. Nothing can ever ease the pain he has caused. This sort of crass lampooning of public officials has never happened at a rodeo until now, and I know that because a bunch of people who have never been within 150 miles of a rodeo said so. And then — worse still — the crowd erupted in applause at the spectacle of a guy in an Obama mask being chased by a rampaging bull. Racists, the lot of ‘em! I mean, Bush never got this sort of treatment. Nobody ever mocked or satirized him. No crude jokes were told about him. Nobody ever wished violence or death upon him. Ever. You know why? Because he’s white. White presidents always get treated nicely, especially white Republicans. Just ask Lincoln. The whole country agreed for over two centuries that we don’t ever insult presidents, then you get into office and all of a sudden every day is Pick on the President Day. Outrageous!

Go read the rest, it is great satire, and will likely get Walsh labelled a RAAAAACIST! And all over a fucking rodeo clown! You know, all of this makes me want to say FTL, which is short for FUCK THE LEFT! Which, of course, makes me a, well, you know……….

5 Reasons Why Leftists Don’t Like That Obama-Masked Rodeo Clown From Missouri




1.) He’s a manly individual, unlike the real Obama.
2.) He’s good at his job, unlike the real Obama.
3.) He’s got a growing fan base, unlike the real Obama.
4.) He’s technically qualified to be president, unlike the real Obama.
5.) He’s not hiding the fact that he’s just been pretending to be black, unlike the real Obama.

Former Missouri Dem Rep Pleads Guilty To Illegally Taking $58K In Disability Payments

Democratic Officeholder Fraudulently Took $58K In Federal Disability Payments – CNS

Raymond E. Salva, a former Democratic member of the Missouri House of Representatives, has pleaded guilty to illegally taking $58,816 in federal disability payments while he was working as a state legislator earning $30,000 a year, according to the Office of the Inspector General of the Social Security Administration.

.

In a plea agreement reached on June 26, Salva agreed to pay $58,816 in restitution to the Social Security Administration (SSA) but he also still faces sentencing, which could include imprisonment of 10 years without parole and a fine up to $250,000.

When Salva was indicted back in November 2012, the acting U.S. attorney for the Western District of Missouri, David Ketchmark, said: “An elected official who is entrusted to make the law must also follow the law. This kind of deceit and illegal double-dipping from the public coffers is nothing less than theft. Today’s indictment alleges that, while purportedly serving the public, he was actually stealing from the taxpayers and betraying the trust of the voters.”

Salva was approved for Social Security disability payments in February 2000, claiming that he had suffered a neck injury in a farm accident. However, in 2002 Salva was elected to the Missouri House of Representatives and he served there as Democratic legislator (District 51) from 2003 through 2010, earning $30,000 a year in compensation. All the while, he received monthly disability payments from the SSA.

In May 2003, about five months after he started working as a state representative, the SSA conducted a review to find out whether Salva was still eligible for disability payments. “As part of that review, Salva completed a form in which he affirmed that he was not able to return to work and that he had not done any work since being disabled,” reads a press release from the SSA’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

Nearly two years went by and Salva continued to get the disability payments every month. Then, in December 2004, the SSA discovered earnings posted to Salva’s record and sent him a letter inquiring about his work activity. “Salva responded that he had conferred with an SSA representative, who told him that public service would not affect his disability benefits,” reads the statement from the OIG. “Salva admitted today [June 26,2013] that this statement was false and that he did not confer with an SSA representative who told him that working as a legislator was in some way exempted.”

Salva continued to receive disability payments in 2005, 2006, 2007, and through February 2008. At that point, the SSA sent a letter to Salva notifying him of the over-payments, and then sent another letter billing him for the nearly $59,000 in over-payment. Salva did not leave the Missouri house of Representatives until December 2010.

Salva appealed the SSA’s over-payment claim to an administrative law judge. And on Jan. 3, 2011, he completed a new application for Social Security disability. He subsequently withdrew that application in February 2011. In April of that year the administrative law judge found Salva “at fault in causing the overpayment,” states the OIG release.

In June of this year, Salva entered his plea agreement with the U.S. attorney’s office for the Western District of Missouri.
