Missouri: Anti-Gun Bill to Receive Hearing on Wednesday

On Wednesday, February 17, the Senate Transportation, Infrastructure and Public Safety Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 691.  The hearing is scheduled for 8:15 a.m. in Senate Hearing Room 1 on the 1st Floor of the Missouri Capitol. 

It is critical that you contact your state Senator immediately in opposition to this bill.

Introduced by state Senator Jamilah Nasheed (R-2), SB 691 mandates that gun owners report a firearm to local law enforcement or a sheriff within 72 hours of “discovering” the loss or theft, or they will be penalized.  Victims of gun theft should not be punished further by being prosecuted for such a “crime.”  Police resources should be focused on finding the real criminals responsible, not further victimizing those who have had not only their belongings stolen, but their sense of security and privacy as well. 

Please contact your state Senator as well as members of the Senate Transportation, Infrastructure and Public Safety Committee and urge them to oppose SB 691.  Contact information for committee members is provided below:
