Post-Dispatch is rightly upset that a State Senator from Southeast Missouri wants to water down ex post facto in order to force pre-1995 sex offenders to have to register. Recently, the Missouri Supreme Court found that doing so did qualify as ex post facto, and was unconstitutional.

This coming from the Post-Dispatch that tolerates every abrogation of the 2nd Amendment that the left wing can concoct. This coming from the same Post-Dispatch that couldn’t understand “plenary power” as it related to the constitutionality of Missouri’s CCW provisions and the clause dealing with Right To Bear Arms in the Missouri Bill of Rights. This coming from the same Post-Dispatch that probably turned its head when, twice in 2006, the U.S. JustUs Department and a Jim Talent-sponsored Senate bill each tried to go on an ex post facto witch hunt of anyone or anything it could find to charge something with in the 1955 murder of Emmett Till.
