Lawmakers in Missouri made a bold move Thursday by passing a bill that would actually make it illegal for federal officers to enforce federal gun control laws in their state.

"The Second Amendment Preservation Act" was passed by the Missouri state Senate and now goes to the House. Democratic Governor Jay Nixon vetoed a similar bill last year.
