    Okay guys, correct me if Im wrong but I believe MO just lowered CCW age to 21?

    Missouri House of Representatives

    HCS HB 668 -- FIREARMS AND DEFENSIVE USE OF FORCE

    SPONSOR: Munzlinger (Jones, 117)

    COMMITTEE ACTION: Voted "do pass" by the Committee on Agri-
    Business by a vote of 11 to 0.

    This substitute specifies that deadly force may be used against a
    person who unlawfully enters, remains after unlawfully entering,
    or attempts to unlawfully enter private property by the
    individual who owns or leases the private property. The
    individual who owns or leases the private property does not have
    a duty to retreat from the property.

    The minimum age requirement for obtaining a concealed carry
    endorsement is lowered from 23 years of age to 21 years of age.
    To process a change of address for a concealed carry endorsement,
    the sheriff of the new jurisdiction may charge a fee of up to
    $10. A sheriff may charge a fee of up to $10 to change the name
    on an endorsement.

    Antique firearms, as defined in 18 U.S.C. Section 921, are exempt
    from the definition of "firearm" as it relates to weapon
    offenses.

    FISCAL NOTE: Estimated Cost on General Revenue Fund of $2,000 in
    FY 2010, $0 in FY 2011, and $0 in FY 2012. No impact on Other
    State Funds in FY 2010, FY 2011, and FY 2012.

    PROPONENTS: Supporters say that the bill will allow veterans,
    returning from defending their country, to defend their families.

    testifying for the bill were Representatives Jones (117), Brown
    (149), Munzlinger, and Leara; and National Rifle Association of
    America.

    OPPONENTS: There was no opposition voiced to the committee.

    If you follow that link it says summary of the committee version of the bill. That would mean that it passed committee, and is now on it's way to the house floor for a vote. I don't know the overall political climate of the house, but with no opposition in committee, it should go far. This is great progress!
    I hope no one succeeds in blocking it or amending the language in it.

    Only problem is many coming back from Iraq are as young as 18 - what about them?

    Well progress is progress.. Hopefully if we can show there wont be mass murder in the streets when 21 year olds can carry then maybe they will eventually think about lowering it to 18..

    I hope it comes to a vote, and I hope it passes. I wrote my representatives as "a concerned father" voicing my support for allowing my daughter to be able to protect herself at an earlier age.

    I hope it passes. The MO legislature has several CCW issues they are dealing with now--5 or 6 IIRC. I hope the political climate in Jeff City is good for these issues.

    This makes sense to me.

    I hope it passes.

    While I agree that they should issue CHLs to 21 year olds, I don't like how they are only going to do this for veterans. I greatly appreciate the service they have and are giving to this country, I don't think they should be singled out like this. 21 year old non veterans get mugged and killed all the time. Why aren't they allowed to have it?

    Not the law yet. The bill lowering the age to 21 as well as authorizing ccw permit holders to carry on college/university campuses, and a couple of other modifications to our ccw laws still has a final vote in the House before moving on to the Senate.

    We are still a long way from these issues becoming law in the state. Even if we get it through the Senate we still aren't sure if the Governor will sign the bill into law.

    The universities are very unhappy with the campus carry provisions and will fight us every inch of the way.

    But we are one step closer.
