MO Legislature Overrides Nixon’s Veto, Becomes Constitutional Carry State

The legislature in Missouri once again proved its commitment to protecting freedom and the second amendment for Missourians by overriding Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of a conceal carry gun bill as reported by National Review:

The Republican-led Legislature enacted the law Wednesday by a 24-6 Senate vote and a 112-41 vote in the House. Both exceeded the two-thirds majority needed to override the veto of Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.

 By surpassing the two-thirds majority in the Missouri House and Senate, the enacted legislation will “allow most adults to carry concealed weapons without needing a permit while also expanding people’s right to defend themselves both in public and private places,” according to U.S. News & World Report.

Because of the Legislature’s bold action in overriding the Governor’s partisan veto, Missourians will now have easier access to their Constitutional protected rights. This is a win for freedom in Missouri and ensures that individual’s will be able to protect themselves going forward.
