Governor Jay Nixon Signs Missouri’s Comprehensive Gun Bill Into Law!

Friday, July 8, 2011

Today, July 8, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon signed into law a vitally important measure expanding a variety of firearm rights for Missouri gun owners!  Among the provisions in this critical bill include lowering Missouri's Right-to-Carry age from the nation's highest, at 23 years of age, to 21.

NRA-backed House Bill 294, authored by state Representative Jeanie Riddle (R-20) and sponsored in the Senate by state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18), is a comprehensive firearm reform bill that addresses a number of Right-to-Carry issues important to Missouri’s law-abiding gun owners. Both chambers of the Missouri General Assembly passed HB 294 by overwhelming majorities.

HB 294 will improve Missouri gun laws by:

• Prohibiting sales taxes on firearms or ammunition from being higher than those for sporting goods, sporting equipment, hunting equipment, and accessories;

• Allowing residents to purchase long guns from non-contiguous states and vice versa by removing non-penalty merchandising practices provisions;

• Lowering the concealed carry age to 21;

• Allowing a person to possess, manufacture, transport, repair, or sell a machine gun, short-barreled rifle or shotgun, or firearm suppressor if he or she complies with federal law;

• Creating the crime of fraudulent firearms purchases if a person knowingly solicits, persuades, encourages, or entices a licensed dealer or private seller of firearms or ammunition to transfer a firearm or ammunition under circumstances which the person knows would violate federal or state laws; and

• Enabling members of the General Assembly and their staff who possess valid concealed carry endorsements to carry a firearm for self-defense in the Capitol.

Please contact state Representative Jeannie Riddle (R-20), state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18) and Governor Jay Nixon to express your appreciation for their support for the Second Amendment rights of lawful Missourians!
