Senate Bills 656 and 745, pro-gun state legislation supported by the NRA, have been delivered to Governor Jay Nixon (D) and await his action. As we have reported recently, SB 656 has been under fire by the anti-gun media, portraying it as a bill that “arms teachers."
Sponsored by state Senator Will Kraus (R-8) and handled in the House by state Representative Kevin Elmer (R-139), SB 656 addresses the following issues:
SB 745, sponsored by state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18) and handled in the House by state Representative Jay Houghton (R-43), 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 in the bill 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.
Please contact Governor Nixon TODAY and respectfully urge him to stand with law-abiding gun owners in Missouri and sign SB 656 and SB 745 into law. Contact information for Governor Nixon is provided below.
