Missouri: House Committee Hearing Self-Defense On Public Transit

On February 26th, the House General Laws Committee will hear House Bill 1722 to ensure law-abiding citizens may carry firearms for self-defense on public transit. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1722.

House Bill 1722, sponsored by Representative Adam Schnelting, removes the prohibition on law-abiding citizens carrying firearms for self-defense on public transit property and in vehicles. In addition, it allows law-abiding citizens to transport unloaded or non-functioning firearms on buses. This repeals an arbitrary “gun-free zone” that does nothing to hinder criminals while leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless. It ensures that citizens with varying commutes throughout their day and of various economic means are able to exercise their Second Amendment rights and defend themselves.

Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1722.
