A measure filed by a Republican lawmaker in Missouri would provide opportunity for gun owners to sue businesses that ban the carry of firearms for self-defense on their property.

Representative-elect Nick Schroer told the News-Leader.com that his measure, House Bill 96, would apply when a person who is authorized to carry a firearm in the Show Me State, is prohibited from doing so by a business and is then injured by another person or an animal.

The measure states that if an injured law-abiding gun owner could have used a gun for self-defense, he or she could sue the business that had banned firearms on the premises, which “assume(s) custodial responsibility for the safety and defense of any person” on their property who could carry.
