The President of the National Rifle Association made his only visit to Missouri this weekend during a Lincoln Days dinner at The Lake of the Ozarks.
David Keene told a group of Republicans about his concerns regarding gun control and ammunition restrictions. When Congress returns to Washington this week, gun control will be at the top of its agenda.
Keene said new gun laws in Colorado, New York and Connecticut will not help protect the public. Last month, Colorado lawmakers expanded background checks and restricted magazines of high-capacity assault weapons.
Keene said, "Many of these proposals are basically unconstitutional. We are already in court in New York. We will be in court in Colorado trying to get some of these things struck down. If that doesn't work and if it takes a few years, we will go at it until the rights of the Colorado gun owners are re-established."
