                   Okay, after January 1 , 2017 anyone in Missouri can legally carry a concealed weapon. What does that mean for those of you who have already gotten a concealed carry license. DON'T LOSE THOSE CARDS! They have a five year life span so if you are going to carry a concealed weapon outside of Missouri (check the reciprosity map for states that accept Missouri ccw license). Okay, can I ask you a question? If anyone can carry a concealed weapon in Missouri without a license af...ter January 1, why on earth would you want to pay $200.00, $250.00 or $500.00 for a free license? Answer, for one reason only, so that you can carry a concealed weapon into another state. Thats it....the only reason. So you already have a CCW license good for five years, use it, then renew it in five years. Save your money. Kinda sounds like our Missouri state legislature is trying to pull a fast one on us doesn't it? Why spend that money when you have already done the work and paid for a CCW license. Have you received a letter from the Missouri Attorney Generals office telling you that your current license is no good anymore? Nope, and unless you do your current license is still good to go. Just a little something for your information.                                                    


                       SB 656 Passes! Nixon’s Veto Overridden

Posted on September 11, 2014 by wmsa

The override didn’t happen until the wee hours of this morning, but happen it did. The Missouri Senate voted to override Governor Jay Nixon’s veto earlier in the evening. The Senate then passed SB 656 to the House.

Senate Bill 656: An omnibus bill dealing with firearms, Nixon vetoed this bill for it’s provisions allowing schools to designate and train a “school protection officer,” to legally carry a firearm on school property. The bill also lowers the minimum age for a CCW permit from 21 to 19. The bill also prohibits health care professionals from asking about requiring asking a patient about firearm ownership or recording and/or reporting such ownership to a government entity. The bill also addresses so-called “open carry” law. Under the bill, local governments will not be able to prohibit CCW holders from engaging in open carry practices. Democratic Senators Scott Sifton and Jolie Justus spent nearly two hours discussing the bill in a semi-filibuster. The bill ultimately passed by a vote of 23-8 along party lines. — The Missouri Times.
