Support Needed For Missouri Veto Override

posted on August 31, 2016

With former NYC mayor and anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg poised to spend big bucks in Missouri to stop an attempted override of SB 655, NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action is alerting Show Me State gun owners to the threat.

The Missouri General Assembly is scheduled to reconvene for a veto session in September, where the House of Representatives and the Senate will vote to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of important pro-gun self-defense legislation. Senate Bill 656, which would make numerous pro-gun reforms including permitting anyone legally allowed to possess a firearm to carry a firearm for self-defense without a permit, was passed out of the legislature with overwhelming support during the 2016 Regular Session before being vetoed by Gov. Nixon.

The NRA has publicly condemned the veto of Senate Bill 656 by Gov. Nixon, and now state legislators need to hear from their constituents in order to override the veto.

Use Your Power!

It is extremely important that Missouri gun owners contact their lawmakers today and urge them not to bow to out-of-state, anti-gun interests by allowing New York-style gun control to come to Missouri. Politely urge them to override Gov. Nixon’s veto of Senate Bill 656 by clicking here.
