Chesterfield Threatening to Strip Citizens of Right to Defend Property
The City of Chesterfield is considering a new ordinance that would allow citizens to be punished for discharging a firearm in defense of their homes. Dave Roland recently offered testimony to the City Council (below,) pointing out that the Missouri Constitution explicitly states that “the right of every citizen to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property… shall not be questioned.” The debate on this bill is starting to heat up, and we expect there to be a lively discussion of this constitutional provision at the next Chesterfield City Council meeting on January 18.

Hello, I’m am a person who study the law and the constitution. This ordnance (bill) in Chesterfield is a gateway to strip gun rights from citizens. And I must say, these left-wing supporters is the blame for this bill and other wrongful restrictions of firearm. If anybody wants my vote, and a lot of other votes, they must introduce a bill that should enforce any and all established exceptions to state and federal gun laws.
