Missouri Bill Offers Firearm Upgrades
In Missouri, a bit of good news is on the horizon: House Bill 2034 shields firearm range owners from civil and criminal liability for noise emission.
The bill also removes residency requirements for concealed carry permits. Under current law, residents must live in Missouri for six months before they can receive a permit. The new legislation waives the six month requirement for those who already possess a valid permit from another state.
In addition, the bill closes the records of those who filed a permit-to-acquire with their county sheriff. It is no longer a requirement to file with the county sheriff and records that are still on file will now only be available through a court order relating to criminal investigations.
