Missouri governor vetoes bill to abolish concealed weapon permits

BY KEVIN MURPHY

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon vetoed a bill on Monday that would eliminate the need for a permit, training and background checks for persons who want to carry a concealed weapon in the state.

The Republican-led bill passed the Missouri House and Senate this spring with enough votes to override the veto when lawmakers convene in September. Two-thirds majority is required.

In a news release accompanying his veto message, Nixon, a Democrat, said he has supported prior legislation to expand concealed carry laws during his seven years in office.

"But I cannot support the extreme step of throwing out that process entirely, eliminating sensible protections like background checks and training requirements, and taking away the ability of sheriffs to protect their communities," Nixon said.

2. I'm fine with permitting...

along with mandatory training and BGC as long as the process is Shall Issue and not a May Issue system where the...*ahem*..."right" to carry is decided by some elected official based upon the applicant's political support/contributions.

3. I'm fine with CC requiring a permit, as long as Open Carry is legal without one.

4. I'm fine with honest and expedient permitting.

No bureaucratic circle jerks. No favorites or favors. Permits with reciprocity.

5. Okay by me. But no Feinsteinian guns-for-elites-only permitting.

6. It's sad to see Nixon influenced by Bloomberg money. He's usually good on 2A matters.

Thankfully, the veto override is in the bag when the state legislature reconvenes this fall. The only permit you need is the 2nd Amendment.
