After last night’s decisive override of Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s veto, the NRA sent the following email blast:
Governor Nixon’s veto of pro-gun self-defense legislation, Senate Bill 656, was overridden by the Missouri General Assembly. With this historic override, Senate Bill 656 will go into law allowing Missourians to carry a firearm for self-defense without a permit beginning on January 1, 2017, in addition to other important self-defense measures.
Sponsored by state Senator Brian Munzlinger (R-18) and state Representative Eric Burlison, (R-133) SB 656 would:
Recognize Missourians right to Constitutional/Permitless Carry
Create Stand your Ground laws
Expand Castle Doctrine protections for anyone legally allowed into your home, vehicle, business and property
Implement 10, 20 and 50 year options for non-reciprocity issued permits
Allow components of firearm training for RTC permits to be online
Thank you to the NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their legislators in support of Senate Bill 656 during the regular and override session. Special thanks to those legislators who continuously voted in support of Senate Bill 656 to protect Missourians’ right to defend themselves and their families.
