    Exclamation Important Victories for Missouri Gun Owners & CCW (May/2012)

    ****Missouri Legislative Session Ends with Important Victories for Gun Owners****

    The Missouri General Assembly passed several pro-gun measures, sending them to Governor Jay Nixon before adjournment of the 2012 legislative session.

    Senate Bill 489 contains important Right-to-Carry reforms by honoring all live-fire training exercises as part of the concealed carry course prior to changes made in the training requirements last year. SB 489 would also legalize the ownership of auto-opening, switchblade knives throughout Missouri.

    House Bill 1647
    , would lower the Right-to-Carry age requirement from 21 to 18 years old for active duty military who are residents of or stationed in Missouri. It would also remove penalties for an accidental exposure of a firearm by a concealed carry endorsement holder and establishes a process for restoration of firearm rights for those currently prohibited.

    Senate Bill 480 is a transportation omnibus bill that includes a provision establishing a National Rifle Association license plate. Purchase of Missouri NRA license plates will help fund important pro-Second Amendment activities in the Show-Me State.

    All bills, if enacted, without an emergency clause will go into effect on August 28.

    Thank you to Missouri NRA members for making your voices heard in the final days and hours of the 2012 session. Contacting your state elected officials was key in resurrecting a number of important NRA-backed firearm freedom legislation.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Although Gov. Nixon is a Democrat, he's the former Attorney General under Republican Gov. Matt Blunt, and so far, has not stood in the way or vetoed any pro-gun legislation.

    Keeping our fingers crossed for his signature on these Bills!

    I'd like to point out that this is another reason to be against HR822.

    We're making so much incremental progress in so many states and slowly but surely removing bureaucrats from the process that the last thing I want to see happen is for RKBA to become a nationally regulated issue.

    Thankfully, it appears held up in the Senate with little chance of getting out of committee.

    Doesn't mean we can quit calling any politicians who could be on the fence on the issue, though.

    Congrats.... some good changes there. ! ! ! Be sure to thank your representative if they voted FOR them, it lets them know they gained some support from a voter and it was noticed.
