Today, lawmakers in Missouri used a heavy Republican supermajority vote to loosen the state gun laws. This new law will allow (most) adults to carry a concealed weapon WITHOUT a permit. That’s right, they do not need a permit to conceal carry.

 

For this law to pass, it needed a whopping 2/3 majority vote in each chamber, which it received.

 

Democrat’s biggest argument is that this could cause racial minorities to be at a higher rish of being shot.

 

“The targets in our area are black boys, not pheasants,” said Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, who represents Ferguson, where sometimes violent protests broke out after the fatal police shooting of black 18-year-old Michael Brown in 2014. The white officer was cleared of wrongdoing by state and federal investigations.

 

First of all, that is a ridiculous scenario to use. The officer, regardless of color, was cleared of wrongdoing because he DID NOT do anything wrong! He was charged by a thug who was twice his size. He called out and warned the thug to stop, but when he did not cease, the officer pulled the trigger.

 

Nadal continued on to say “What I don’t want is to get to the point where there is a trigger-happy police officer or bad Samaritan like Zimmerman who says, ‘Black boy in the hood. Skittles. Let’s shoot.”

 

Once again, not a good scenario to use, but hey, they will use any and everything they can.

 

The new bill will allow LAW ABIDING citizens to protect not only themselves, but their family as well.

 

Missouri will join 10 other states that already allow concealed carry without a permit.

    There will always be a person who, in anger, may go wrong here but this is a rarity with law abiding citizens. It’s the non-law abiding people who make the headlines. When the latter knows that others around them may be armed, they are more prone to show self control.
    Self control is the basic makeup of a moral person, which America’s society depends on for survival.

    “Democrat’s biggest argument is that this could cause racial minorities to be at a higher risk of being shot.”

    Actually, it should reduce the risk of being shot, because there is less risk of them assaulting someone if the person is likely to be armed.

    No where in this law does it say that the right to carry does not extend to blacks who are right now the victims of criminals. This lw is GOOD for good people. And Democrats, who are playing the puppet for the ONE WORLD ORDER are pushing to disarm All GOOD PEOPLE. WHY? ONE WORLD ORDER people are NOT good.

    why is it that the only right mentioned in the constitution that we have to ask for special permission is the 2nd Amendment Right ?
    There should be no permit needed to exercise this right.
    The amendment is not to insure any gov’t the right to exclude you except by special permit .
