Missouri’s “Hunting Heritage Protection Act” Being Undermined!
Friday, July 27, 2007
On July 3, 2007 Governor Blunt signed Senate Bill 225into law. Now, NRA members are anxiously awaiting the enactment date on August 28. Since passage in the closing days of Missouri’s regular session, the Missouri Municipal League (MML) has undermined NRA members' hard work on SB 225, by urging all cities that do not currently have restrictions on hunting and the discharge of firearms to enact such an ordinance prior to the effective date of Senate Bill 225, the “Hunting Heritage Protection Areas Act.”Now, the MML is trying to influence your local Park District board to pass restrictions on SB 225!
As you know, SB225 protects Missouri’s critical wildlife habitat and sport shooting areas within the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers 100 year flood plain and prohibits localities from enacting any ordinance that restricts hunting and lawful discharge within the protected areas. In doing so, this important legislation will protect irreplaceable wildlife habitat for current and future generations of sportsmen.Please be sure to monitor your city government and Park District meeting and agenda announcements and alert NRA-ILA of any proposal that seeks to restrict hunting and sport shooting. Please forward any information to Kris Koenen at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 267-1209.

Gun control advocates are once again pushing the entertainment industry to produce anti-gun propaganda with the explicit goal of advancing failed firearm legislation. The renewed overt effort will strike some as superfluous, given Hollywood’s lengthy track record of anti-gun agitprop and left-wing political monoculture.
