Three Minor Victories for Gun Rights in Missouri

Posted on the 22 May 2012 by Mikeb302000
Naturally the pro-gun crowd calls these "big" victories. What do you think?
 Senate Bill 489 contains important Right-to-Carry reforms by honoring all live-fire training exercises as part of the concealed carry course prior to changes made in the training requirements last year.  SB 489 would also legalize the ownership of auto-opening, switchblade knives throughout Missouri.
House Bill 1647, would lower the Right-to-Carry age requirement from 21 to 18 years old for active duty military who are residents of or stationed in Missouri.  It would also remove penalties for an accidental exposure of a firearm by a concealed carry endorsement holder and establishes a process for restoration of firearm rights for those currently prohibited.
Senate Bill 480 is a transportation omnibus bill that includes a provision establishing a National Rifle Association license plate.  Purchase of Missouri NRA license plates will help fund important pro-Second Amendment activities in the Show-Me State.
