SIGNED: Confiscation Protection During State Emergencies

On April 13th, 2007, at the NRA Convention in St.Louis, Governor Matt Blunt signed SB-257 into law. This legislation prohibits the confiscation of lawfully possessed firearms or ammunition from citizens during a state of emergency. The ammendment to RSMo Chapter 44 will become affective on August 28, 2007. Similar legislation, dubbed "the Katrina Bill", has already passed in many other states.

And yes, I am rather behind in getting this posted!! However, since it doesn't become affective until August I could, with a bit of a stretch, argue that I'm actually posting this ~early~ since you'll have to wait several months for it to become active law... stretch, stretch!
