If you haven’t already heard the news, the House General Laws Committee passed House Bill 630 by a party line vote of 9-3 late Tuesday night.
The bill now moves to the House Rules Committee for their consideration, and I have to tell you, with the calendar moving steadily along — they need to hear from you now!
There are always a flurry of last minute budget bills that require a lot of time to finalize and approve in the last month of the session.
That’s especially true in the first year of a 2-year assembly and with a new Governor.
That’s why I need you to contact the committee members right away — using the information below — to make sure they know that ending deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ is a top priority for gun owners!
As a reminder, that’s all that House Bill 630 would do: end the state mandated ‘Gun Free Zones’ that are in effect in close to two dozen locations.
The passage of Constitutional Carry last year doesn’t change these policies, meaning that you are required to be disarmed in places like churches, hospitals, mass transit systems, sports complexes and many more!
And, as we all know, it’s ‘Gun Free Zones’ like these that are almost always targeted by a madman looking for a body count!
So please help us end these dangerous ‘Gun Free Zones’ in Missouri by contacting the House Rules Committee using the phone numbers, email addresses, and Facebook links I’ve listed below.

Your message is very simple: insist that they support HB630 as is, with no amendments, and that they move it through the committee right away!
If you’d prefer, you can use the pre-written email below.
Dear Member of the House Rules Committee,
I am writing to urge you to vote ‘YES’ on HB630 as soon as it comes before you!
HB630 simply removes the dangerous ‘Gun Free Zones’ that are on the book here in Missouri, and allows law abiding citizens the ability to defend themselves in so many public places.
Study after study show us the painful truth that so-called ‘Gun Free Zones’ don’t stop crime but actually attract violent killers, who know they won’t face opposition in these areas.
With there only being a little over a month left in session, and with the bill having already cleared the sub-committee and the General Laws committee — I hope you’ll advance this right away with no weakening amendments!
Please act fast — there’s not a lot of time to spare!
Word of this fight is growing. More and more media outlets are picking up on this and trying to shut us down.
In addition, powerful corporate lobby interests are trying to blockade the bill behind the scenes!
So in addition to contacting the committee members, please give us the ammo we need to fight with by donating $50, $25 or even just $10 today!
Either way, make your voices heard by contacting the committee right away!
Dr. Curt Frazier
Chairman of the Board
P.S. Our legislation to end the deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ here in Missouri has passed the second committee and now moves into the House Rules Committee!
With the end of session only a month away, it’s critical that you contact the committee immediately using the information provide above.
And with this bill passing another committee, the list of enemies who are trying to stop the bill continues to grow.
Please help us continue to mobilize Missourians with your most generous contribution today of $50, $25 or even just $10 today!
