Campus Carry Might Be Back On The Agenda In Missouri

posted on November 23, 2016

For three years running, campus carry has been introduced in the Missouri House and Senate. Each year, it has stalled. 

Supporters have renewed hope that 2017 will be the year in which law-abiding gun owners can finally bring their firearms onto campus, just like they can when not on campus property. Thanks to a Republican super majority in the legislature and a Republican governor elected to succeed Democrat Jay Nixon, plans to bring the campus carry bill back are already underway.    

 “I believe it’s important because we do have a right through the Second Amendment,” said Republican state Rep. Jered Taylor. “We shouldn’t take someone’s rights away because they stepped across the street and onto a college campus. Overall, I think it’s about personal responsibility and personal safety.”

Legislators can begin pre-filing bills on Dec. 1, ahead of the first day of session on Jan. 4.
