Missouri Legislators To Address Veto Override Today

Today’s the day! Missouri state legislators are returning to the state capitol this morning to consider an override of Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of pro-gun Senate Bill 656.

Despite the “permitless” carry bill unanimously passing the legislature with overwhelming support earlier this year, a coalition of anti-gun organizations led by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is attempting to prevent the override. Bloomberg has invested millions in the state, aggressively targeting Republican legislators in an attempt to flip the votes necessary to sustain the veto. 

The NRA is urging residents to contact their representatives—tell them you don’t want to bring Bloomberg’s big-city gun control to the Midwest, and ask them to demand an overriding vote.
