Think of just about any mass shooting this country has witnessed over the past two decades — including the recent travesty in Parkland, Florida — and you and I both know what they have in common.
Virtually all of them take place in so-called “Gun Free Zones.”
The killers know they’ll run into absolutely no one who is armed.
So they’re free to shoot human fish in a barrel until they run out of ammo or someone from the outside with a gun and a little guts bothers to show up.
I’m sick of seeing innocent people slaughtered — enabled by idiot politicians who think a stone-cold killer is going to see a “Gun Free Zone” sticker on a door and go, “I guess I can’t go in here!”
If you are, too, I’m counting on you to please sign the enclosed petition to all members of the Missouri State House Rules Committee insisting they vote to pass “Gun Free Zone” Repeal (H.B. 1936).
The good news, is that thanks to your help the State House’s General Laws Committee just passed legislation (H.B. 1936) REPEALING every one of the “Gun Free Zones” on Missouri’s books.
My staff testified. And despite being outnumbered by Bloomberg’s anti-gun goons 90-8, we still ended up passing this legislation through the General Laws Committee 8-4!
This would be a MAJOR step forward for Missouri — and help shield our state — from the shootings we’ve seen in recent years.
As you and I have seen, as the body count rises, so does the media’s mass hysteria against law-abiding gun owners like you and me!
Now, all over the country, gun control laws are being debated and rammed into law — as if that will solve anything.
But what will, is ENDING “Gun Free Zones” across Missouri!
And I can promise you that if we don’t act to end “Gun Free Zones,” one day the gun-grabbers WILL be able generate enough anti-gun hysteria after a mass shooting that ALL of our Second Amendment freedoms will be on the chopping block.
That’s why we have to act now.
If passed, the Missouri “Gun Free Zone” Repeal Bill would take every one of the following areas state law automatically declares a “gun free zone” off the books, including:
*** Hospitals. As a physician, I can tell you that gang violence routinely spills over into hospitals as criminals look to ensure those who might talk to police are “taken care of” before they’re able to talk;
*** Churches. Sadly, we’ve already seen in Sutherland Springs, Texas and Charleston, South Carolina what happens when evil people target innocents who are unarmed. With our culture’s growing hatred for traditional values, I can’t say I think attacks on churches will let up;
*** Many restaurants. Just consider how vulnerable waitresses who are leaving work late at night are just walking to their cars! Why should our state government stand in the way of them protecting themselves?
*** Day cares. Just as we’ve seen in schools, day cares have also been targets for those seeking to make news headlines through murder;
*** Polling places and local government meetings. Local government officials are allowed to carry to protect themselves. Isn’t your life worth just as much?
It would also mandate that K-12 schools provide a legal method for someone on the premises to carry through an enhanced permit — whether that’s teachers, school administrators or security officers.
Just as we’ve seen with Columbine, Newtown, and Parkland, our kids are often the most vulnerable to blood-crazed lunatics.
So isn’t it time a gunman was forced to think twice before targeting a school for a shooting spree?
I certainly think so.
And the good news is, if we can pass H.B. 1936, Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun pals will likely realize Missouri is a lost cause.
And you and I can send them packing!
But it won’t happen without your IMMEDIATE action.
That’s why I’m counting on you to sign your petition insisting the House Rules Committee pass H.B. 1936 right away.
The members of this Committee are already getting an earful from Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun crowd.
They need to hear from you TODAY.
And in addition to signing your petition, please agree to a generous contribution to help me launch:
>>> A massive statewide mail and email program designed to generate pressure on politicians;
>>> A statewide media tour where the Missouri Firearms Coalition will work talk radio and local TV explaining why we must end so-called “Gun Free Zones;”
>>> A state-of-the-art Internet and social media campaign exposing any politician who dares to stand in our way;
>>> Hard-hitting Internet, radio and newspaper ads calling out politicians who’d rather keep Missouri safe for criminals.
I know that’s a lot to ask for.
But I know you feel the pit in your stomach every time you flip on the news to hear about one of these shootings.
You feel for the victims and their families. You’re angered at the ridiculous policies politicians have put in place that enable these tragedies.
You’re frustrated at those who could have stopped the tragedies, but didn’t.
And then afterwards you see media elites sneering at you telling everyone who will listen that you’re the problem.
I’m sick of it all.
Let’s end “Gun Free Zones” in Missouri before it’s too late.
We have the chance. It’s time to take it.

P.S. After passage through Missouri’s General Laws Committee, “Gun Free Zone” Repeal is headed to the Rules Committee!
Bloomberg and his pals are mobilizing like never before to stop it!
