Missouri: City of St. Robert Discharge Ban Update!

Friday, December 4, 2009

Last week, NRA members responded to an ILA alert regarding St. Robert, Missouri’s recently passed discharge ban.

Because of your phone calls and emails, St. Robert’s City Attorney, Kevin Hillman, contacted NRA to discuss the city code regulating firearms and projectile discharge within the city limits. Mr. Hillman graciously provided NRA a detailed description of how the amended section, 200.250, was purposed to relax restrictions on both firearm and bow-hunting within the city limits, and was in no way designed to limit the use of self-defense rights of residents.

NRA expressed concern on the portion of Section 200.250, the “Air Gun” discharge clause, that specifically stated a person who discharges “any BB gun, spring gun or air gun or shall shoot any pebble, bullet, slug, arrow or other hard substance by means of a sling, crossbow, rubber band or bow or any other means shall be deemed guilty of an ordinance violation.”

Mr. Hillman assured NRA that Section 200.240, which protects the use of a firearm for self-defense, would not be affected by the amended code in Section 200.250. 

SECTION 200.240:     WEAPONS -- CARRYING CONCEALED -- OTHER UNLAWFUL USES

A.     A person commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons if he or she knowingly:

1.     Carries concealed upon or about his or her person a knife, a firearm, a blackjack or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use; or

D.           Subdivisions (1), (8) and (10) of Subsection (A) of this Section shall not apply to

any person who has a valid concealed carry endorsement issued pursuant to Section 571.101, RSMo., or a valid permit or endorsement to carry concealed firearms issued by another State or political subdivision of another State. 

E.     Subdivisions (3), (4), (5), (6), (7), (8), (9) and (10) of Subsection (A) of this Section shall not apply to persons who are engaged in a lawful act of defense pursuant to Section 563.030, RSMo.

Thank you for contacting your city leaders regarding the city code on firearms. Your activism began a productive conversation with the City Attorney, Kevin Hillman, and brought resolution that leaves everyone better informed of their rights and city regulations.
