Missouri: House Committee Passes Pro-Gun Bills

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Last week, the House General Laws Committee approved and reported as “Do Pass” multiple NRA-supported bills.  The following pro-gun bills have been referred to the House Rules Committee where they will be assigned to the House calendar:

House Bill 1778, sponsored by state Representative Jeanie Riddle (R-20), would prevent a landlord from prohibiting tenants from possessing a legally owned or possessed firearm in an individual residence or common areas.

House Bill 1591, sponsored by state Representative Wanda Brown (R-57), states that there shall be no more than 40 students per qualified firearms safety instructor during the classroom portion of a firearms safety training course.  Current Missouri law only allows 40 students per classroom, regardless of whether or not there is more than one instructor present.

House Bill 1539, sponsored by state Representative Mike Kelley (R-127), would modify the current concealed carry training requirement, which requires an individual to shoot both a revolver and semi-automatic pistol, and would allow someone to shoot only one firearm rather than both firearms.

House Bill 1474, sponsored by state Representative Rick Brattin (R-55), would allow any school district to designate a teacher or administrator as a school protection officer to carry a concealed firearm after he or she has met specified training requirements.

The Missouri General Assembly is currently not in session, but will return on Monday, March 24, at 4:00 p.m.  Please contact your state Representative today and respectfully urge him or her to vote “YES” on the bills listed above.  Contact information for your state Representative can be found here.

Additionally, Senate Bill 745, sponsored by state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18), passed in the Senate Judiciary Committee and Civil and Criminal Jurisprudence Committee.  SB 745 includes improved right-to-carry language and technical corrections related to transitioning the concealed carry permit process to the sheriffs in 2013.  Please contact your state Senator and ask him or her to vote “YES” on SB 745.  Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
