    Go Missouri!

    ...The biggest victory for gun owners comes from HB 1657, which makes it easier for some people to obtain concealed carry endorsements and gives people with CCW permits more freedom.

    The bill allows members of the United States Armed Forces to receive a concealed carry endorsement starting at age 18 rather than age 21. The idea behind it is hey we trust these servicemen and women to operate military-grade weapons, then it’s certainly reasonable to allow them to carry concealed weapons. After all carrying a hidden pistol can’t be any worse than driving a tank.

    This extra leeway also applies to spouses of service members stationed in Missouri and individuals who have been honorably discharged and have assumed residency in Missouri.

    The other major breakthrough for gun rights advocates is how the new laws change how the state handles concealed carry restrictions. People with a valid concealed carry permit and who legally carry a firearm may “briefly and openly display the firearm to the ordinary sight of another person, unless the firearm is intentionally displayed in an angry or threatening manner, not in necessary self-defense.”

    I like the way Missouri states: "briefly display the firearm to the ordinary sight of another person..."

    Florida has something similar, but is not very specific...there have already been some problems.

    Good to hear.

    Here, they wanted no doubts, and wrote the law so that if you had a CC license you could in essence open carry, and any city, etc. could not prohibit it. I know of no incidences a CC holder has opened carried as a result, but ..... they made it so no one could twist anything the wrong way at all just to harrass someone with a CC license.
