Missouri Senate Judiciary Committee Taking Up Firearms Bills!

Friday, February 9, 2007

 

Hearing set for Monday, February 12 and your help is needed!

On Monday, February 12, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear a number of firearms-related bills.

 

Please contact your State Senator at (573)-751-3824 and urge him or her to take the following action:

 

Support these important pro-gun bills:

Senate Bill 257 (Missouri Disaster Recovery Protection Act) sponsored by Senator Kevin Engler (R-3), would prohibit the suspension of your Second Amendment rights, as well protect against confiscation of firearms, during a declared state of emergency;

 

Senate Bill 457, sponsored by Senator Chuck Purgason (R-33), would repeal the requirement for the outdated and unnecessary permit to acquire a handgun; and finally,

 

Senate Bill 41 (also sponsored by Sen. Purgason), and Senate Bill 62, sponsored by Senator Jack Goodman (R-29), are both Castle Doctrine bills that would further protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their families from violent attacks.

 

Oppose these anti-gun bills:

Senate Bill 144, sponsored by gun-ban advocate Senator Joan Bray (D-24), would create the crime of “negligent storage,” and

 

Senate Bill 337, also sponsored by gun-ban advocate Senator Joan Bray (D-24), would require any business that sells firearms or ammunition to use video surveillance cameras.

 

 

In the House of Representatives: 

Representative David Pearce (R-121) has introduced the House version of the Missouri Disaster Recovery Protection Act, along with two more versions, House Bill 60 and House Bill 189 , introduced by Representative Marilyn Ruestman (R-131) and Representative Kenny Jones (R-117) respectively.  These bills were heard this week in the House Special Committee on General Laws. Neither bill was voted on, however they were both well received by the committee.
