                       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.


At this time, if you are planning a trip into another state and would like to Carry Concealed I would strongly recommend contacting the Missouri Attorney Generals office for instruction on how to proceed.  This just may prevent you from being arrested for illegally carrying a handgun concealed. 

I would also like to thank the many people who attended my Concealed Carry Classes.
