Should the introduced language eventually be adopted, the Hawkeye State would become the fourth – behind Louisiana, Missouri, and Alabama – to explicitly designate strict scrutiny as the required judicial standard for adjudicating restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms.

Missouri: Right to Keep and Bear Arms Constitutional Amendment Awaits Action in House

Last week, the House General Laws Committee voted “Do Pass” on Senate Joint Resolution 36 and this measure is currently waiting to be added to the House floor calendar.  Sponsored by state Senator Kurt Shaefer (R-19) and being handled in the House by state Representative John Diehl (R-89), SJR 36 would strengthen Missouri’s current right to keep and bear arms constitutional amendment, Section 23, Article I.
