No permit needed to carry a weapon in Missouri...

Not really sure how I feel about this...I went through an 8 hour course that had hands on training and was taught about the gun laws in our state..

Now anyone may carry a a concealed gun without a permit...Good, bad what's your opinion ??

It is now headed to the House for consideration which should also override the veto without an issue..

Shall not be infringed. Period. No criminal record or mental illness. Good to go. Bottom line is it's not up to me or anyone else to dictate who's capable once they pass the background check to purchase.

This would be true if every gun purchase went through the background check, but they don't...Online sales on social forums are bursting at the seams here in Missouri and most don't even do a bill of sale...

The hood rat doesn't care either way because they were carrying anyway...

A bit scary. Especially for the police officers. I can not see that ending well for them if all the hood rats can carry and a justified shooting goes down.
I wonder how many of them are applying out of state for new positions?

I'm happy with the requirements that the CCW holder either take some instruction or pass a test, and that they don't have any criminal record.

So who among us hasn't been at the range and seen some noobie who is all over a full-size silhouette target at five yards? People like that need a little more practice before I want them handling a gun around me.

I'm not comfortable with noob's either. But the 2nd amendment doesn't say Keep and Bear arms if you meet someone else's criteria. That's liberal thinking, not unless you meet my standards.

I think if pass a background check to buy a handgun there should be no reason why you shouldn't be able to carry that gun. Is paying a fee to the government for a carry permit going to make you more responsible ? I doubt it.

In Pennsylvania anyone without a record can open carry without a permit, but if you get in a vehicle you need a carry permit. If you want a carry permit you go to the Sheriff's Department and apply for one for about $30. In 30 days you have your permit. Pa has the second most CCW permits issued in the country and I don't see many issues with guns in the state. If your going to do something stupid with a gun, no fee, class or license is going to stop you.

Update from the first post....

In the House, the veto was overridden on a 112-41 vote...It is now the law of Missouri...

There's several states that have Constitutional Carry, folks are doing fine. The good people of Missouri will handle their freedoms well as do their next door neighbors in Kansas with Constitutional Carry.

Every time gun restrictions are lifted the same old hangwringing occurs. And every time the handwringing is proved wrong.

Good, bad, what's my opinion? My opinion is that gun owners who support government mandated training, licensing and background checks to exercise the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms do a disservice to the Constitution and their fellow Americans.

On the good side a lot of the poorer people who couldn't afford to take a class or pay for a permit can now be protected.
