On May 30, the leadership of the Missouri General Assembly delivered a number of pieces of legislation to Governor Jay Nixon. Three of these bills were NRA-backed bills that, if enacted into law, will preserve and protect Second Amendment rights of Missouri’s residents. Governor Nixon now has 45 days to sign this legislation into law. Please contact Governor Nixon TODAY to communicate your support for the following bills:
House Bill 1647, championed by state Representative Jeanie Riddle (R-20) and state Senator Mike Kehoe (R-6), contains several important self-defense improvements important to Missouri’s gun owners. HB 1647 lowers the Right-to-Carry age requirement from 21 to 18 years old for active duty military (who are residents of or stationed in Missouri), removes penalties for an accidental exposure of a firearm by a concealed carry endorsement holder and establishes a process for restoration of firearm rights for those currently prohibited.
Senate Bill 489, authored by state Senators Brian Munzlinger (R-18) and Dan Brown (R-16) and state Representative Ward Franz (R-151), would protect all Missouri Right-to-Carry endorsements by honoring all live-fire training exercises completed as part of a concealed carry course prior to the requirement changes made last year. Since SB 489 includes an emergency clause, it will go into effect upon the Governor’s approval.
Senate Bill 480 is the transportation omnibus bill that establishes a special National Rifle Association license plate, as amended by state Representative Eric Burlison (R-136) and supported by its author, state Senator Bill Stouffer (R-21). Purchase of Missouri NRA license plates will help fund important pro-Second Amendment activities in the Show-Me State.
Thank you to Missouri NRA members for making your voices heard in the final days and hours of the 2012 legislative session. Your dedication to contacting your state elected officials helped ensure passage of a number of important NRA-backed firearm bills this session.
Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated on the status of these bills.
