Missouri: Self-Defense Bill and Right-to-Carry Reform Delivered to Governor

Thursday, May 30, 2013

Contact Governor Nixon TODAY and ask him to sign House Bill 533 and Senate Bill 75 into law

Two important pro-gun reforms, House Bill 533 and Senate Bill 75, were officially delivered to Governor Jay Nixon (D) today.  He now has 45 days to act on these measures.

HB 533, sponsored by state Representative Jeanie Riddle (R-49) and state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18), would protect the right of a state employee to store a firearm in his or her private vehicle on state property as long as the vehicle is locked and the firearm is not visible.  This bill also seeks to prohibit any government entity from using tax dollars to participate in a gun “buyback” program unless the firearms are resold or transferred to a federally licensed firearms dealer.

SB 75, sponsored by state Senator Dan Brown (R-16) and state Representative Eric Burlison (R-133), seeks to reform Missouri’s existing concealed carry process.  Currently, the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) is responsible for issuing concealed carry endorsements, but after recently betraying the trust of the people of Missouri, state legislators have demanded the permitting process be transferred to county sheriffs.  If SB 75 is enacted, sheriffs will be the issuing authority for all concealed carry permits starting January 1, 2014.  In addition to this critical right-to-carry reform, SB 75 would also allow schools to annually teach the NRA Eddie Eagle Gunsafe® Program to help keep children safe.

The NRA thanks the bill sponsors, and also House Speaker Tim Jones (R-110), House Majority Floor Leader John Diehl (R-89), Senate Majority Floor Leader Ron Richard (R-32), Senate Pro Tem Tom Dempsey (R-23) and Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Kurt Schaefer (R-19) for their leadership and steadfast efforts to ensure these essential reforms were passed this legislative session.

Please contact Governor Nixon and respectfully ask him to sign House Bill 533 and Senate Bill 75 into law.
