Missouri: Urge your Legislators to Override Governor Nixon’s Veto of Self-Defense Legislation

Last Month, Governor Jay Nixon vetoed Senate Bill 656, an important pro-gun omnibus self-defense bill.  Among the numerous expanded protection opportunities, SB 656 would have also permitted anyone legally allowed to possess a firearm to carry a firearm for self-defense without a permit.

The NRA has publicly condemned the veto of Senate Bill 656 by Governor Jay Nixon, and now your legislators need to hear from YOU in order to override the veto.  Please contact your state Senator and state Representative and politely urge them to support the override of Governor Nixon’s veto of Senate Bill 656.


Sponsored by state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18), and state Representative Eric Burlison (R-133) SB 656 would:

  • Recognize Missourians right to Constitutional/Permitless Carry
  • Expand Missouri’s current Stand your Ground laws 
  • Expand Castle Doctrine protections for anyone legally allowed into your home, vehicle, business and property
  • Implement 10, 20 and 50 year options for non-reciprocity issued permits
  • Allow components of firearm training for RTC permits to be online 

Again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state legislators and urge them to override Governor Nixon’s veto of Senate Bill 656.
