Gun Bill Stirs Debate on House Floor

JACKSON, MISS– The House of Representatives is back to debating bills after the filibuster last week. 

House democrats were having bills read aloud in a form of protesting a bill. After two days of bills ranging up to 293 pages being read aloud by the automated reader, house democrats and republicans have agreed to get back to business.

Debate was once against opened on gun rights after Representative Andy Gipson presented House Bill 782, which would prohibit the federal enforcement of certain federal laws relating to firearms. In short, officials attempting to enforce federal law restricting guns or gun use could face fines from the state, if the state doesn’t recognize that law.

“Gentleman,” says Representative John Hines, “how many of these gun bills are we going to have to deal with?” He continues, “do you lie awake at night thinking about these kinds of things? Can we move on to things that matter?”

House democrats suggests that this bill would allow citizens to pick and choose whatever laws they wish to obey.

The bill was held on a motion to reconsider later.
