Yesterday, thanks to your calls and e-mails, the Missouri Senate removed the anti-gun language in Senate Bill 613 by a 22 to 9 vote. After SB 613 was amended with the adoption of language relating to stolen firearms reporting, offered by anti-gun state Senator Jamilah Nasheed (D-5), your NRA-ILA expressed its opposition to the bill. We want to thank the Missouri Senate and its leadership for listening to constituents’ views, and removing the anti-gun language. Given the removal of Sen. Nasheed’s amendment, NRA-ILA is neutral once again on Senate Bill 613. SB 613, in its current form, is expected to be read for its third time in the state Senate this week.
Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated throughout the 2014 legislative session.
