Missouri: Constitutional Carry Passed the Emerging Issues Committee – Action Needed!

Missouri: Constitutional Carry Passed the Emerging Issues Committee - Action Needed!

The entire nation is watching!

Gun owners in West Virginia forced the legislature to pass Constitutional Carry legislation last week, including an override of the Governor’s veto, notching up one more state that allows citizens to carry without needing government permission.

Every time another state passes this law – our collective gun rights take a step forward.

Now it’s our turn, and gun owners are watching to see if Missouri becomes the next state to make Constitutional Carry a reality!

And the good news is, we’re making progress!

I’m pleased to report that thanks to your calls, emails, and Facebook messages to the members of the House Emerging Issues Committee — the committee approved our Constitutional Carry bill (HB1468) and advanced it with no weakening amendments!

Now the bill moves into the House Select Committee for General Laws, and the process is repeated.

As a reminder, the Missouri Constitutional Carry Bill would restore the right of every law-abiding Missouri citizen to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families — WITHOUT going through a bunch of bureaucratic rigmarole!

In short, if you’re legally able to own a firearm, you’re legally able to carry it. Period.

As I said a moment ago, gun owners all over the country are watching this fight!

(Gun owners all over the country are watching our fight to pass Constitutional Carry – hoping that we can add to the momentum that was begun in West Virginia last week!)

But this also means that anti-gun forces both here in Missouri and outside organizations such as those funded by radical gun-grabbers like Michael Bloomberg will also now be mobilizing their forces in an attempt to shut down this crucial legislation.

That’s why it’s vital that you contact the members of the House Select Committee for General Laws and insist that they pass HB1468 through their committee with no weakening amendments!

Remember, it’s your calls and emails that make all the difference when legislators decide whether or not to pass legislation.

Anti-gun forces will be mobilizing their people. We need to do the same!

That’s why I’m counting on you to make your calls and send your emails to the committee right away.

Once you’re done, please send this email to every one of your pro-gun friends and family members here in Missouri – get them involved in this fight too!

Finally, if you can, please consider chipping in $10 or $20 to enable the Missouri Firearms Coalition to mobilize even more gun owners by email, social media, and direct mail if we have time!

But please make your calls and send your emails first, that’s most important!

For Freedom,

Dr. Curt Frazier
Chairman of the Board


P.S. Thanks to all of your calls and emails, the House Emerging Issues Committee has advanced Constitutional Carry legislation (HB1468) out of their committee with no weakening amendments!

Now the bill moves to the House Select Committee for General Laws – meaning that you and I need to redouble our efforts and make sure that this bill doesn’t die in Committee.

After all, as the nation watches to see if Missouri becomes the next Constitutional Carry state, you can be sure that anti-gun forces will be mounting a major challenge to this legislation!

So please immediately call and email the members of the committee and insist that they advance HB1468 right away!

(You can use our pre-written email below if you prefer.)

Sample Email Message

Dear Representative,

Constitutional Carry legislation, HB1468, recently passed out of the Emerging Issues Committee and is now in the House Select Committee for General Laws — on which you serve.

Constitutional Carry is a very simple bill that simply allows law abiding Missourians to carry a firearm for self-defense without having to go through a bunch of bureaucratic hassles, pay heavy fees, and be added to a database.

Anyone currently unable to own or carry firearms would remain ineligible under this law and the current Shall Issue permit system would remain in place for those who want the optional permit.

Constitutional Carry became law in Kansas last year, West Virginia passed it just last week, and it’s on the books in another half-dozen states!

Please vote in support of this important legislation when it comes up before you.

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Curt Frazier
Chairman of the Board
