Missouri Lawmakers Pass Pro-Gun Bill On Last Day Of Session

posted on May 16, 2016

On Friday—the last day of the session—both the Missouri Senate and House approved Senate Bill 656, an pro-gun measure that makes several important changes.

Sponsored by Republican state Sen. Brian Munzlinger and Republican state Rep. Eric Burlison, SB 656 would recognize Missourians’ right to constitutional/permitless carry where open carry is not prohibited; expand Missouri’s current Stand your Ground laws; and expand Castle Doctrine protections for anyone legally allowed into your home, vehicle, business and property. It would also specify that except for credit card fees incurred, no additional fee beyond $100 may be charged to process concealed-carry permits; allow military members extra time to renew their permits; implement 10-, 20- and 50-year options for non-reciprocity-issued permits; and allow components of firearm training for RTC permits to be online.

Senate Bill 656 will now be sent to the desk of Governor Jay Nixon for his consideration and signature.
