This is great! Missouri already has open carry, this bill just took that one step further. You have the right to defend yourself. Missouri is upholding that right today.
Missouri lawmakers have overridden a veto of a wide-ranging guns bill that will let more people carry concealed weapons and give them greater legal rights to defend themselves.
The legislation will allow most people to carry concealed guns without needing a permit. That means they won’t have to go through the training currently required for permit holders. Missouri will join 10 other states with what supporters describe as a “constitutional carry” right.
The measure also expands legal protections for those who use deadly force to defend themselves in both public and private places.
