Missouri: City of St. Robert Passes Discharge Ban!

Friday, November 20, 2009

The Board of Aldermen of the City of St. Robert recently passed an ordinance banning the discharge of any “projectile device" within the city limits.

Unfortunately, this ordinance makes no exemption for the use of a firearm in self-defense, even in one's own home.

Please contact your city aldermen and let them know you want the act of self-defense within the city limits to be protected and exempted in this ordinance!

An ordinance amending the St. Robert City Code by Amending Section 200.250 (Discharging air guns and other projectile devices) of the city code
