Missouri: General Assembly to Take Up Pro-Gun Legislation During Tomorrow’s Veto Override Session

As reported last week, the Missouri General Assembly will meet tomorrow and Thursday to consider bills that were vetoed by Governor Jay Nixon.  Three of the bills being considered include provisions that would improve gun laws in the Show Me State.  Tomorrow, the bills will come up in their house of origination – Senate Bill 656 in the state Senate and House Bill 2002 and House Bill 2008 in the state House of Representatives – and on Thursday the opposite chamber will consider those bills if passed.  Each of these bills addresses the issue of creating a safer school environment, by making Missouri more compliant with the NRA’s School Shield program.
