Missouri: March Update on Pro-Gun Legislation

Senate Bill 656, sponsored by state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18), specifies that except for credit card fees incurred, no additional fee beyond $100 may be charged to process concealed carry permits and allows military members extra time to renew their permits. 

SB 656 was unanimously passed by the Missouri Senate and is now awaiting House Speaker Todd Richardson’s referral to a committee.  Please contact your state Representative and ask him or her to Support SB 656.

*****

Yesterday, February 29, several NRA-backed bills were heard by the Committee on Emerging Issues.  Those bills are still pending a vote in the committee and are outlined below:

House Bill 1468, sponsored by state Representative Eric Burlison (R-133), would allow all law-abiding individuals to carry a concealed firearm anywhere that isn't expressly prohibited by law.  HB 1468 would also recognize your right to legally carry a concealed firearm without having to obtain a permit, allowing law-abiding gun owners the ability to better protect themselves and their loved ones.

House Bill 1764, sponsored by state Representative Robert Cornejo (R-64), would require a church or other place of worship to provide explicit notice that concealed firearms are not allowed on the property.  Under this legislation, if church leadership orders their members not to carry for self-defense, they must post such notifications for members. 

House Bill 1819, sponsored by state Representative Joe Don McGaugh (R-39), would modify provisions relating to the use of force and provisions relating to firearms.  This update to Missouri’s Castle Doctrine statute would allow anyone who is lawfully inside a dwelling to use protective force to defend themselves or others.  The current Castle Doctrine does not explicitly include visitors, such as family members or other authorized persons visiting the home, under its protections.

Please contact your state Representative as well as members of the Committee on Emerging Issues, and politely ask them to support these critical pro-gun bills.  You can contact your Representative by clicking here or the above button.
