Correcting Roe v. Wade

Pro-lifers only seek to regulate abortions. Though it may not be their intent, Pro-lifers are the ones keeping abortion legal. Pro-lifers lobby for legislation containing language like this: “It’s legal to kill your child if you wait 36 hours to decide” or “It’s legal to kill your child if you give him or her pain killers first.” (Of course, these are paraphrased.)
Representative Moon does not seek to regulate abortion. He intends to work with the state legislature to correct the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade 1973. With the help of others, both representatives and fellow Missourians, we will be successful!

HB 299 — CIVIL LIBERTIES DEFENSE ACT SPONSOR: Moon

This bill creates the Civil Liberties Defense Act. The bill mandates that any court, arbitration, tribunal, or administrative agency ruling is unenforceable if based on a foreign law that is repugnant or inconsistent with the Missouri and United States constitutions. The bill makes contract provisions that choose to apply a foreign law to contractual disputes or to have disputes settled in another country void and unenforceable in Missouri if the foreign law is repugnant to or inconsistent with the Missouri and United States constitutions. In some cases, a court may refuse to take jurisdiction over matters, where the court believes there is a more appropriate forum for the dispute. This bill requires that the court hear the case in Missouri if a state resident brings the case and if the court finds that not hearing the case in Missouri violates or would likely violate the rights of the person who brought the case. The bill does not apply to a business entity that subjects itself to a foreign law in a jurisdiction outside the United States and does not authorize courts to adjudicate religious matters. This bill is similar to HB 2507 (2016).

You Can Still Get in Trouble Without a CCW in Missouri | HB 1107

While attending a refresher CCW course, I learned that (as a result of the enactment of SB 656 – 2016) individuals who carry a weapon concealed without a permit are subject to enhanced fines.

For example, individuals with a CCW permit who carries a firearm onto the premises of a location prohibiting firearms may be asked to leave the premises. If they resist and a LEO is summoned, a citation may be issued with a fine of no more than $100. Subsequent infractions may be met with increased penalties.

If, however, the above scenario is acted out by a individuals without a CCW permit is not afforded the opportunity to leave and is subject to a fine of up to $1000, potential jail time, and is prohibited from obtaining a CCW permit in the future.

HB 1107 has been filed to make the penalties equivalent to that of a CCW permit holder.

•You could be fined $1,000
•Go to jail
•Be charged with a misdemeanor and never be allowed to get a CCW

HB1107 Will fix this problem.
