Despite the attacks launched by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Constitutional Carry passed through the Select Committee on General Laws yesterday in a very brief 6-2 vote, with two members of the committee absent.
All of them were talking about the number of calls and emails that they have been receiving from you regarding this legislation!
Thank you for working so hard to advance this legislation.
Constitutional Carry (HB 1468) is a very simple concept, if you’re legally allowed to own a firearm, you’re legally allowed to carry it for self-defense without having to pay fees, go through bureaucratic processes, or be added to a government database.
This is the same sort of law that passed in neighboring Kansas last year, West Virginia two weeks ago, and is poised to become law in Idaho as early as next week!
But with each step forward we make in advancing Constitutional Carry for Missouri — anti-gun organizations both here in Missouri and nationwide — are taking notice.
I fully expect a major attack from out-of-state billionaires like Michael Bloomberg and his front groups as this bill progresses.
That’s why I need your help!
The next step for HB 1468 is to be called to the House Floor for a vote by the entire House.
We need House Speaker Todd Richardson and Majority Floor Leader Mike Cierpiot to take the next step and put this bill on the Floor!
Please contact them right away and urge them to move this forward, with no weakening amendments. You can reach them using the information below.

▶▶▶ Majority Leader Mike Cierpiot
Once you have, please send a note of thanks to Rep. Eric Burlison for helping us get as far as we have in this process.
Eric did a great job of answering questions on the bill yesterday and has stuck up for gun owners throughout this process.

As a reminder, the legislature is on Spring Break next week, so please contact them right away!
Dr. Curt Frazier
Chairman of the Board
P.S. Thanks to your calls and emails, Constitutional Carry legislation (HB 1468) passed out of the House Select Committee on General Laws yesterday with a vote of 6-2, with 2 additional members absent.
Thank you for getting us to this point!
Now we need you to contact the Speaker of the House and Majority Floor Leader, using the information above, and urge them to put this bill on the House Floor for a vote by the full House!
