State Representative Brian Munzlinger (R-1) has introduced NRA-supported House Bill 462, a measure that would repeal Missouri’s outdated and duplicative permit to acquire a handgun (PTA) law. Missouri is among a minority of states that still maintains a permitting system for handgun purchases and transfers. HB462 would remove this unnecessary burden for law-abiding gun owners and relieve them from this intrusion into their privacy. While this bill has not yet been referred to committee, it is very important that you contact your State Representative at (573) 751-3659 and strongly encourage him or her to support and co-sponsor HB462.
Additionally, please continue to contact your State Senator at (573)-751-3824 and urge him or her to support, and vote in favor of, two NRA-supported measures: Senate Bill 225, the “Hunting Heritage Protection Area Act,” introduced by Senator Bill Stouffer (R-21); and Senate Bill 257, the “Missouri Disaster Recovery Act,” introduced by Senator Kevin Engler (R-3).
