Additionally, the state House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 745 yesterday, as amended, by a 122 to 23 vote and was concurred on in the state Senate today. Sponsored by state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18) and handled in the House by state Representative Jay Houghton (R-43), SB 745 includes improved right to carry language and technical corrections related to the 2013 transition of the concealed carry permit issuance process to the sheriffs. As previously reported, several pro-gun amendments were adopted to SB 745. These amendments include language that would modify the current concealed carry training requirement, which requires an individual to shoot both a revolver and a semi-automatic pistol, and would instead allow someone to shoot only one firearm rather than both firearms. Other language states that there shall be no more than forty students per qualified firearms safety instructor during the classroom portion of a firearms safety training course. Current Missouri law only allows forty students per classroom, regardless of whether or not there is more than one instructor present. Senate Bill 745 now goes to Governor Jay Nixon for his signature.
