Missouri Governor Jay Nixon signed a log awaited gun rights bill into law today. Nixon is a Democrat in the gun friendly State of Missouri. Guns and gun rights are part of our culture. The Governor waited until the last day. There was not too much doubt that he would sign the bill. He had little choice. He could have vetoed the bill had there been enough support from the gun control lobby. He also could have not signed the bill without a veto. In that case the bill would have become law by default. This would have made the Governor look soft and not willing to take a stand.
He did take a stand so I have to congratulate him. He listened to the will of the people and acted accordingly.
Here is the Bill he signed: NRA-ILA :: Governor Jay Nixon Signs Missouri
