Missouri Lawmakers Reconvene To Override Constitutional Carry Veto

posted on September 7, 2016

Next week, Missouri state legislators will return to the State Capitol and vote to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of 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. The fate of the bill will be decided one week from today in Jefferson City.
