Missouri: Self-Defense Bill Referred to Another Senate Committee

Gun Rights

House Bill 1462, to reduce areas where law-abiding citizens are left defenseless, has been referred to Senate Governmental Accountability and Fiscal Oversight Committee. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT HB 1462 and schedule it for a hearing.

House Bill 1462 repeals arbitrary “gun-free zones” that do nothing to hinder criminals, while leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless. It removes the prohibition on law-abiding citizens carrying firearms for self-defense on public transit property and in vehicles. This ensures that citizens with varying commutes throughout their day, and of various economic means, are able to exercise their Second Amendment rights and defend themselves.

The bill also repeals the prohibition in state law against carrying firearms for self-defense in places of worship. This empowers private property owners to make such decisions regarding security on their own, rather than the government mandating a one-size-fits-all solution.
