Celebrating A Big 2A Win in the Show Me State

posted on September 16, 2016

The Missouri General Assembly on Wednesday voted to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of important pro-gun legislation, marking a major victory for the Show Me State’s law-abiding gun owners.

The new law will allow anyone legally allowed to possess a firearm to carry that firearm, while also maintaining the current permit system. In addition, the bill expands Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground protections; adds additional permit options to include extended and lifetime permits; specifies that with the exception of credit card fees, no additional fee beyond $100 may be charged to process concealed carry permits; and allows members of the military extra time to renew their permits.

“This is a great day for freedom in Missouri,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. “The legislature stood strong for the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens by overriding Gov. Nixon's misguided veto. Despite the best efforts of Michael Bloomberg and out-of-state gun-control groups to defeat the override vote, their agenda was rejected."
