Constitutional Carry Comes to Missouri!

Constitutional Carry Comes to Missouri!

Missouri becomes the 11th state to allow “constitutional carry,” allowing people to carry concealed firearms without a permit!

On Wednesday, the Missouri state senate used parliamentary maneuvers to end a Democrat filibuster and force a vote to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of SB656, a bill written to eliminate the permit requirements for concealed carry.

After passing in the Senate 24-6, the bill moved on to the House where it quickly passed 112-41 and thus exceeded the two-thirds majority needed to override a veto.

Constitutional carry becomes law in 30 days.

SB656 does other wonderful things as well, such as making Missouri a “stand your ground” state and eliminating a victims duty to retreat before fighting back against an assailant. The bill also expands the castle doctrine to allow invited guests in a home to use deadly force on intruders.

And if you still want to get a concealed carry permit, you can. There’s a lifetime version that never expires. Open carry without a permit was already legal in the state.

Missouri Democrats reacted to the bill in a predictable fashion, with one representative from North Kansas City calling it a “stupid, dangerous piece of legislation,”

Sen. Brian Munzlinger, a Republican who sponsored the bill, disagrees, saying the new law “will allow law abiding citizens to protect themselves from criminals.”

And Rep. Kevin Engler says that gun-control advocates make ominous predictions about every gun bill that the Missouri General Assembly has ever passed.

“This bill will not do the crazy things that are being said,” Engler said.

We congratulate Missouri on the accomplishment and hope that other states follow their example!

      I refer to permit-less or constitutional carry as a “We don’t need no stinkin badges law”, because the law does not require you to get one of those silly CCW Badges in order to carry. Referring to constitutional carry as such allows me to do two of my favourite things, advocate for the second amendment, and make fun of CCW badges, in one action.

      If only I could find a way to also make fun of sheepdogs as well.

      I was born and raised in NYC and saw the handwriting on the wall back in the ’70’s to get out. So I headed out west and landed in California. It was fine in the ’70’s but then the same NYC liberal mania crept in here too. Now I’m retired and about to relocate once again to either Arizona or Utah. I figure I moved once to escape that madness and I can do it again! The change of relocating is always frightening at first, but you can do it. Oh one more thing . . . Vote Trump!

        And yea:
        VOTE TRUMP!
