On February 26, 2004 Missouri’s concealed weapons law became effective. The law set up training requirements and background checks for applicants as well as issuing processes for sheriffs. It also states restrictions on where concealed weapons are and are not allowed. Lastly, it allows persons to carry concealed in their vehicle without obtaining a permit. [Source]
