Missouri: HB 643, Self-Defense on Public Transit, Referred to Committee

House Bill 643, which would allow law-abiding citizens to carry firearms for self-defense on public transit, has been referred to the Missouri state House General Laws Committee.  Please contact committee members and urge them to SUPPORT HB 643.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact committee members.

House Bill 643, sponsored by Representative Adam Schnelting (R-104), is a companion to Senate Bill 39.  These important self-defense bills would remove the prohibition on law-abiding citizens carrying firearms for self-defense on public transit property and in vehicles.  In addition, they would also allow law-abiding citizens to transport unloaded or non-functioning firearms on buses.  These bills would repeal an arbitrary “gun-free zone” that does nothing to hinder criminals while leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless.  They 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.
