Missouri: Pro-Gun Bill Heads to Governor’s Desk!

Friday, May 28, 2010

Please Contact the Governor Today!

On Friday, May 14, House Bill 1692 passed out of the Missouri General Assembly with the Senate’s adopted amendments.  HB1692 now heads to Governor Jay Nixon’s (D) desk for his consideration.

HB1692, sponsored by State Representative Jason Smith (R-150), contains numerous pro-gun provisions, such as expanding Missouri’s “Castle Doctrine” protections to any property boundaries one leases or owns, capping the sheriff fee at $10 for permit holders who change address’, and clarifies the language, “intoxicated with a firearm,” so that the person cannot be charged with a felony if they lawfully possess firearms in their home while intoxicated. This provision also extends to self-defense.

HB1692 would also allow a prosecutor with a Right-to-Carry permit to carry in a courthouse and with the judge’s permission, in the courtroom as well. If signed the bill would also bring Missouri’s gun laws up to speed by reflecting the federal law exempting antique firearms from “unlawful possession” citations.

In Missouri’s 2010 legislative session only 10% of the filed legislation passed out of both chambers. Thanks to State Senators Charlie Shields (R-34), Kevin Engler (R-3), Jane Cunningham (R-7), Bill Stouffer (R-21), Jack Goodman (R-29), Scott Rupp (R-2), and Brad Lager (R-12), Missouri’s law-abiding gun owners were able to pass important pro-gun legislation in the final hours of legislative session.


It is important that strong legislation like HB1692 be signed into law.  Please contact Governor Nixon and respectfully urge him to sign HB1692. Contact information can be found by clicking here.
