ARNOLD — The city of Arnold this 7 days requested a judge to overturn Missouri’s controversial new gun legislation, stating it is imprecise and perplexing, hampers prison investigations and is contrary to state and federal regulation.
In a lawsuit filed in Jefferson County Circuit Courtroom on Wednesday, the city says the “Second Modification Preservation Act” has a series of provisions that set town officials at danger, such as an evident prohibition from seizing guns for the duration of investigations.
The metropolis also said the regulation hampers the “recruitment, choosing and retention of legislation enforcement officers who are at this time or previously used by or affiliated with” any federal agency.
The match seeks a judge’s purchase that would block enforcement of some of the law’s provisions.
Law enforcement and federal officials have continuously complained about the new regulation, citing examples in which it had influenced investigations.
The metropolis of St. Louis, St. Louis County and Jackson County also have submitted a lawsuit around the gun law.
And Democrats this week filed laws to repeal sections of it. A Cole County judge’s ruling upholding the law is currently being appealed to the Missouri Supreme Court.
