Today, Missouri State Senator Kurt Schaefer (R-Columbia) amended Senate Bill 663 with critical self-defense language, known as Stand Your Ground. Senate Bill 663 and this pro-gun amendment by Senator Schaefer could be considered as early as tomorrow for final Senate passage before it goes to the Missouri House and it is important that your state Senator hear from you TODAY. Please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT SB 663 when it comes up for a vote.
This amendment would expand Missouri’s current Stand your Ground laws and provide that a person does not have a duty to retreat from any place that such person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity has a right to be.
