Appeals Court Clarifies Missouri Airport Carry Law

posted on December 21, 2016

A recent ruling by the Missouri Court of Appeals states that gun owners with a concealed-carry license can now carry their firearm onto airport parking lots and into the airport. (Guns still cannot be taken through security, however.) 

The ruling clarifies a Springfield ordinance that bans guns on airport property unless you’re a member of law enforcement or have written authorization. “The Second Amendment, given this case, would trump that ordinance,” said local attorney Adam Woody. 

Matt Fry, partner at Rosenblum and Fry law firm, has represented many citizens who had forgotten they had a gun on them when they entered the airport. Each was charged with unlawful use of a weapon. Fry says this new ruling will rectify that.

“If you carry a firearm into Lambert, you can be asked to leave, possibly subject to a fine—but you can't be arrested and charged for unlawful use of a weapon if you are a concealed-carry permit holder,” he noted.
