Missouri: Right-to-Carry Reform Signed into Law

Friday, July 12, 2013

Today, Governor Jay Nixon (D) signed into law Senate Bill 75, critical right-to-carry reform legislation.  Sponsored by state Senator Dan Brown (R-16) and state Representative Eric Burlison (R-133), this new law seeks to reform Missouri’s existing concealed carry process.  Starting January 1, 2014, sheriffs will now be the issuing authority for all concealed carry permits.  Additionally, it allows schools to annually teach the NRA Eddie Eagle Gunsafe® Program to help keep children safe.

Many thanks to those state legislators who voted in support of this right-to-carry reform as well as the ability to keep kids safe by educating them on firearm safety.  Please contact state Representative Eric Burlisonstate Senator Dan Brown and Governor Nixon to express your appreciation for their work and support to enact these critical reforms.
