Help Us Fix MO’s Self-Defense Laws!
Missouri’s Stand-Your-Ground law has holes in it. That’s how Kim Gardner was able to attack Mark and Patricia McCloskey after they defended themselves from a violent mob!
Until we fix these issues, every law-abiding gun owner in Missouri could face these same politically motivated attacks after they are forced to defend themselves against a violent criminal.
Representative Jered Taylor’s HB-2118 would provide criminal immunity to gun owners who use reasonable force in defending themselves. More, this new legislation would offer a pre-trial hearing so you could assert your immunity BEFORE you go to court, not only during an appeal following a conviction.
The legislation also modifies Missouri’s assault statutes to make it clear that displaying a firearm to stop a violent criminal is not a criminal action!
Once this bill is passed into law, Missouri will have the best self-defense laws in the entire country, and we won’t have to worry about being McCloskey’d ever again! But moderates in the legislature don’t want to pass this bill and are working behind the scenes to kill it.
So please send your PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL to the House Government Oversight Committee immediately, and urge them to move HB-2118 through their committee right away and with no weakening amendments!
Once you’ve done that, take the next step and become a member of the Missouri Firearms Coalition so that we can keep fighting for you in Jefferson City and in D.C.! You can get involved at www.JOINMOFC.com!
