    Question on wording of RSMO 21.750

    http://www.moga.mo.gov/statutes/c000-099/0210000750.htm

    Does this mean that the municipalities that restrict open carry or conceal carry are in direct violation of MO law? I keep on rereading this and come up with the same answer of yes. If I am reading this wrong, please help me see where I'm going astray. I know that most are not lawyers but would like sane, like minded people to reply before going and spending money on a lawyer.
    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    Read paragraph 3 very carefully. That is where the legislature gave the municipalities the authority to regulate OC contrary to the MO Constitution.

    It became effective in 1985. The State of Missouri preempts everything about firearms except open carry RSMO 21.750.3
    Discharge of a firearm within a municipality and sales tax of firearms and ammunition.

    All we need to do is preempt 21.750.3 and the muni's can find a nother hobby!

    Maybe next year? We'll see........

    I worked 24/7 for 2A OC rights! Don't like what I did? Try it yourself, it was my full time job!

    Not CC, only OC. Only the state can restrict CC. Most towns don't restrict OC cuz they ain't had any problems and they have cops who know the law.

    It seems that the closer to "big cities" you get the less knowledgeable it seems the cops get. By and large the vast majority of cops in MO know the law. Virtually every one of them recommends that we CC to "save the children".

    Out in the sticks where I live cops don't care one way or the other as long as you ain't displaying any nitwit behaviors.

    For some reason I kept on skipping over that paragraph. Weird. Oh well, got my hopes up for nothing.

    Again you have posted a "no shirt sherlock" statement, As long as anyone is doing their own thing and bot bothering any other person, they need to be left completely alone by the government.

    Weary is a better way to put it, weary of governmental interference in areas the system by design was to prevent.
