On February 12th, the Missouri state Senate Transportation, Infrastructure and Public Safety Committee voted to pass Senate Bill 39 to allow law-abiding citizens to carry firearms for self-defense on public transit. It has been placed on the Senate informal calendar and can be brought up at any time for consideration on the floor. Please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT SB 39.

Senate Bill 39, sponsored by Senator Bob Onder (R-2), would remove the prohibition on law-abiding citizens carrying firearms for self-defense on public transit property and vehicles. In addition, it would also allow law-abiding citizens to transport unloaded or non-functioning firearms on buses. This bill would repeal an arbitrary “gun-free-zone” that does nothing to hinder criminals while leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless. It would ensure that citizens with varying commutes throughout their day and of various economic means are able to exercise their Second Amendment rights and defend themselves.
