Missouri Pro-Gun Legislation On The Move!

Wednesday, February 14, 2007

 

Your State Legislators Need To Hear From You Today!

 

Two Castle Doctrine Bills, House Bill 189, sponsored by Representative Kenny Jones (R-117), and House Bill 60, sponsored by Representative Marilyn Ruestman (R-131), have been rolled into one bill and are now heading to the House floor!

 

HB189 establishes that law-abiding Missourians do not have a duty to retreat and may defend themselves and their families from a criminal attack without fear of criminal prosecution or civil liability.

 

Also, House Bill 462, sponsored by Representative Brian Munzlinger (R-1), and House Bill 669, sponsored by Representative David Pearce (R-121) will likely be heard next week in the House Special Committee on General Laws.

 

HB462, the House companion bill to Senate Bill 457, sponsored by Senator Chuck Purgason (R-33), would repeal Missouri's outdated, redundant and ill-conceived permit to acquire a handgun statute.

 

HB669, the House companion bill to Senate Bill 257, sponsored by Senator Kevin Engler (R-3), would establish the “Missouri Disaster Recovery Protection Act” and prohibit government agencies from suspending your Second Amendment rights during an emergency or disaster.

 

Please contact your State Representative at (573) 751-3659 and strongly urge him or her to support and vote for the important bills listed above.

 

Finally, in addition to hearing the aforementioned SB457 and SB257, earlier this week the Senate Judiciary Committee also considered two Castle Doctrine bills, Senate Bill 41 (Purgason) and Senate Bill 62, sponsored by Senator Jack Goodman (R-62). All four bills were strongly supported with testimony from a throng of citizens and were well received by the committee.

 

Please continue to contact your State Senator at (573)-751-3824 and urge him or her to support NRA-backed proposals SB 41 and SB 62.
