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Senate Bill 457, sponsored by Senator Chuck Purgason (R-33), would repeal the requirement for the outdated and unnecessary permit to acquire a handgun; and finally,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