Missouri: Gun Control Lobby Working Overtime to Prevent the Strengthening of Your Second Amendment Rights

Missouri: Gun Control Lobby Working Overtime to Prevent the Strengthening of Your Second Amendment Rights

In September, the Missouri General Assembly will reconvene for a veto session.  During the veto session, your lawmakers will vote to override Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of important pro-gun self-defense legislation, Senate Bill 656.  This omnibus bill would make numerous pro-gun reforms, including permitting anyone legally allowed to possess a firearm to carry a firearm for self-defense without a permit.  Having passed the legislature with overwhelming support during the 2016 Regular Session, Governor Nixon decided to play politics with your rights and veto the legislation. 


Former New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, along with his anti-gun allies, are coming out of the woodwork to oppose any attempt to override the veto of SB 656.  These anti-gun elitists would like to see the Second Amendment repealed from the U.S. Constitution, and are targeting Missouri this September.  Your legislators need to hear from you now more than ever!

The NRA has publicly condemned the veto of Senate Bill 656 by Governor Nixon, and now your legislators need to hear from YOU in order to override the veto.  Please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and state Representative and urge them to support the override of Governor Nixon’s veto of Senate Bill 656.  Urge them not to bow to out-of-state, anti-gun interests by letting New York-style gun control come to Missouri.

For information on Senate Bill 656 and its importance, please visit NRA’s 2AinMO website.  Encourage your family, friends and fellow gun owners to visit this site and contact their lawmakers in support of overriding Governor Nixon’s Veto of SB 656.
