Missouri: The Shoot-Me State

Missouri: The Shoot-Me State
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD SEPT. 16, 2016

In an alarming victory for the gun lobby, Missouri’s Republican-controlled Legislature voted Wednesday to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto and enact a wholesale retreat from gun safety in the state.

The law will let citizens carry concealed weapons in public without a state gun permit, criminal background check or firearms training.

It strips local law enforcement of its current authority to deny firearms to those guilty of domestic violence and to other high-risk individuals. And it establishes a dangerous “stand your ground” standard that will allow gun owners to shoot and claim self-defense based on their own sense of feeling threatened.

2. Every criminal with a record, every wife beater

 

every idiot that will leave his loaded gun on the coffee table so his kid can pick it up and shoot yours when they are playing, every right wing freak hopped up on Fox news and hate radio with an ax to grind..now rule by the gun in Missouri.

I would stay far far away if possible.

4. And we wonder why the police seem so paranoid...

when interacting with the public.

And - if you choose to exercise the second half of your 2nd Amendment right - really bad shit can happen, particularly from the first half exercisers - "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state..."
