    Summary of 2A Bils going to the Governor

    Might not be 100% complete, but good to some extent:

    HCS/SB 75 - This act modifies provisions relating to public safety.
    SHERIFFS: This act provides that no person will be eligible for the office of sheriff unless he or she holds a valid peace officer license under Chapter 590. Any person filing for the office must have the license at the time of filing. These provisions do not apply to St. Louis County or St. Louis City. (Section 57.010)
    Every sheriff must maintain, house, and issue concealed carry permits beginning January 1, 2014. (Section 57.100)
    The sheriff of any first class county not having a charter form of government, second class county, third class county, or fourth class county may employ an attorney to aid and advise the sheriff in the discharge of his or her duties and represent him or her in court. (Section 57.104)
    Under current law, prisoners in a county jail must pay the costs of their board. This act requires the circuit clerk in each county to report to the Office of State Courts Administrator the names of people certified by the sheriff as being delinquent in the payment of money owed for a period of imprisonment in a county jail. Whenever a person has satisfied his or her debt or begun making regular payments to the sheriff, the sheriff must notify the clerk that the person is no longer considered delinquent. (Section 221.070)
    The sheriff of any county may establish and operate a canteen or commissary in the county jail for the use and benefit of the prisoners. The revenues received from the canteen or commissary must be kept in a separate account and must be used to acquire the goods sold and other minimum expenses of operation. Any excess moneys must be deposited in the Inmate Prisoner Detainee Security Fund. (Section 221.102)
    These provisions are substantially similar to HCS/HB 464 (2013) and HCS/SCS/SB 42 (2013).
    ASIRT: This act establishes the Active Shooter and Intruder Response Training for Schools Program (ASIRT). By July 1, 2014, each school district and charter school may train teachers and school employees on how to respond to students with information about a threatening situation and how to address a potentially dangerous or armed intruder or active shooter in the school or on school property. Training may be conducted on an annual basis. Initial training may be eight hours in length and continuing training may be four hours in length. All school personnel must annually participate in a simulated active shooter and intruder response drill conducted by law enforcement professionals, as described in the act. Program instructors must be certified by the Department of Public Safety's Peace Officers Standards Training Commission. (Section 170.315)
    EDDIE EAGLE GUNSAFE PROGRAM: Each school district and charter school may annually teach the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program to first grade students, or use a substantially similar or successor program of the same qualifications. The purpose of the program will be to promote safety and protection of children and emphasize how students should respond if they encounter a firearm. School personnel and program instructors must not make value judgments about firearms. Firearms are prohibited from the teaching of the program. Students with disabilities will participate to the extent appropriate. (Section 171.410)
    FIREARMS OWNERSHIP RECORDS: Any records of ownership of a firearm or applications for ownership or an endorsement that allows a person to own, acquire, possess, or carry a firearm are not open records and will not be open for inspection except by order of the court to persons having a legitimate interest. Any person who violates this provision is guilty of a class A misdemeanor. (Section 571.011)
    CONCEALED CARRY PERMITS: Under current law, a person seeking to carry concealed firearms must apply to the sheriff for a certificate of qualification for a concealed carry endorsement. Upon the issuance of the certificate, the person must then present the certificate to the Department of Revenue, which issues a driver's licenses or nondriver's licenses with a concealed carry endorsement. This act repeals the provisions requiring the person to present the certificate to the Department of Revenue for a driver's license or nondriver's license with a concealed carry endorsement. Instead, the permit issued by the sheriff authorizes the person to carry concealed firearms. (Section 571.101)
    Concealed carry permits will be valid for five years from the date of issuance or renewal. A concealed carry endorsement issued prior to August 28, 2013 must continue for a period of three years from the date of issuance or renewal, as described in the act. (Section 571.101)
    This act changes the eligibility requirements for a concealed carry permit. Non-citizens who are United States permanent residents are eligible. Currently, an applicant must not have pled guilty or pled no contest to certain crimes punishable by a prison term of one year or less. This act increases the prison term to two years. This act adds closed records to the documents in which a person cannot have engaged in a pattern of behavior considered dangerous to obtain a concealed carry permit. Applicants must also not otherwise be prohibited from possessing a firearm under section 571.070 or 18 U.S.C. 922(g). If an applicant is not a U.S. citizen, the application must include his or her country of citizenship and any alien or admission number issued by the federal Bureau of Customs and Immigration Enforcement. An applicant must show a government-issued photo identification only for the purpose of verifying the person's identify for permit renewal. (Section 571.101)
    The concealed carry permit must specify only the following information: the permit holder's name, address, date of birth, gender, height, weight, color of hair, color of eyes, and signature; the signature of the issuing sheriff; the date of issuance; and the expiration date. (Section 571.101)
    The permit must be no larger than two inches wide by three and one-fourth inches and must be of a uniform style. The permit must be assigned a Missouri uniform law enforcement system county code and must be stored in sequential number. (Section 571.101)
    Biometric data is prohibited from being collected from the applicant. The sheriff must perform an inquiry of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. If no disqualifying information is identified, the sheriff must issue the permit. However, if the required background checks are not completed within forty-eight hours and no disqualifying information has come to the sheriff's attention, the sheriff must issue a permit. The permit will be valid until the sheriff issues or denies the certificate of qualification. If the background checks identify a disqualifying record, the sheriff must revoke the permit. (Section 571.101)
    Sheriffs must keep a record of all applications for concealed carry permits or permits. Any record of an application that is incomplete or denied must be kept for a period not to exceed one year. Records of approved applications must be kept for one year after the expiration and non-renewal of the permit. Beginning August 28, 2013, the Department of Revenue must not keep any records of applications for concealed carry permits. Any information collected by the Department of Revenue related to an application for a concealed carry endorsement prior to August 28, 2013 must be given to MoSmart and the sheriff of the county in which the applicant resides. (Section 571.101)
    Certain personal protected information is required to not be batch processed for query and is only available for a single entry query if an individual is a subject of interest in an active criminal investigation or is arrested for a crime. In addition, the distribution of bulk downloads or batch data to federal, state, or private entities is prohibited, except to MoSmart as provided in the act. Any state agency that has retained any documents or records, including fingerprint records provided for a concealed carry endorsement prior to August 28, 2013 must destroy them upon successful issuance of a permit. (Section 571.101)
    For purposes of chapter 571, the term "concealed carry permit" will include any concealed carry endorsement issued by the Department of Revenue before January 1, 2014 and any concealed carry document issued by any sheriff or under the authority of any sheriff after December 31, 2013. (Section 571.101)
    If a permit holder is convicted, as described in the act, the court must forward the permit to the issuing sheriff. (Section 571.104)
    To renew a concealed carry permit, a renewal application must be completed. In lieu of the fingerprint requirements and firearms safety training, the applicant need only display his or her current concealed carry permit. A name-based background check, including an inquiry of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, must be done for each renewal. The process for renewing a concealed carry endorsement issued prior to August 28, 2013 will be the same as for renewing a concealed carry permit except that the applicant need only display his or her current driver's license or nondriver's licence containing an endorsement in lieu of the fingerprint and firearms safety training requirement. (Section 571.104)
    Late fees assessed for a renewal and notice of expired certificates to the Missouri uniform law enforcement system and the individual are extended to concealed carry permits. Also, when a permit or endorsement holder's permanent address changes and he or she reports the address change to the sheriffs, the sheriff of the new jurisdiction may charge a fee for processing not to exceed ten dollars. If the person has a concealed carry endorsement issued prior to August 28, 2013, he or she must also furnish proof to the Department of Revenue. The sheriff must report the residence change to the Missouri uniform law enforcement system. A ten dollar fee may be charged for the replacement of a lost or destroyed permit or a driver's license or nondriver's license containing a concealed carry endorsement. A sheriff may charge a fee not to exceed ten dollars for name changes. The sheriff must report the name change to the Missouri uniform law enforcement system. (Section 571.104)
    This act repeals the requirement that a concealed carry endorsement suspension be reinstated at the time of the individual's driver's license. (Section 571.107)
    FIREARMS SAFETY INSTRUCTION: This act reduces, from fifty to twenty, the number of minimum rounds of live firing an applicant must do to receive a certificate of firearms safety training course completion by a qualified firearms safety instructor.
    Certificates from a firearms safety instructor course approved by the Department of Public Safety must be notarized.
    This act allows a qualified firearms safety instructor to submit a copy of a training instructor certificate, course outline bearing a notarized signature of the instructor, and recent photograph to the sheriff of the county in which he or she resides. The sheriff must collect an annual ten dollar fee from an instructor who chooses to submit the information and must retain a database of qualified instructors. This information will be a closed record except for access by any sheriff.
    Any firearms safety instructor who violates any provision of section 571.111 will be prohibited from instructing concealed carry permit classes and issuing certificates. (Section 571.111)
    OTHER CONCEALED CARRY CHANGES: The forms used to petition a court to revoke an individual's concealed carry permit or endorsement will be updated to incorporate changes in the law, including: the previously mentioned allowable increase in prison term from one year to years' imprisonment; the effect of the issuance of a provisional certificate of qualification; and disqualification based on 18 U.S.C. 922(g). (Section 571.114)
    The term "concealed carry endorsement" is replaced, or supplemented with, the phrase "concealed carry permit" throughout to reflect the change from the issuance of a concealed carry endorsement to a concealed carry permit. The terms "provisional certificate of qualification" and "certificate of qualification" are changed to "permit." In addition, "permanent resident" is added in conjunction with "United States citizen" or "U.S. citizen." (Sections 50.535, 302.181, 571.030, 571.037, 571.107, 571.114, 571.121)
    PROHIBITION ON SHARING RECORDS OR DEVELOPING DATABASES WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT: This prohibits state agencies, departments, contractors and agents working for the state from constructing, enabling, maintaining, participating in, developing or cooperating with the state or federal government in developing a database or record of the number or type of firearms, ammunition, or firearms accessories that an individual possesses.
    This provision is also contained in HCS/HB 787 (2013). (Section 571.500)
    MOSMART: Any information collected by the Department of Revenue related to a concealed carry endorsement must be given to the members of MoSmart. In addition, on August 28, 2013, the Department of Revenue must begin transferring any records related to the issuance of a concealed permit to MoSmart for dissemination to sheriffs. (Sections 571.101 & 650.350)
    This act creates the "Concealed Carry Permit Fund" within the state treasury. The director of the Department of Public Safety must distribute all funds annually in the form of grants approved by MoSMART. The Department must administer all MoSMART grant deposits. Grant funds must be spent first to ensure county law enforcement agencies' ability to comply with the issuance of conceal carry endorsements, including but not limited to, equipment, records management hardware and software, personnel, supplies, and other services. (Section 650.350)
    REPEALED SECTION: This act repeals section 571.102, which governed the effective date of the law based on the date when the Department of Revenue begins issuing nondriver licenses with conceal carry endorsements. (Section 571.102)
    This act contains an emergency clause on Section 650.350. (MoSmart)
    Provisions in this act are similar to HCS/SS/SB 252 (2013) and HCS/HB 787 (2013).

    This bill changes the laws regarding firearms.
    The bill establishes the Second Amendment Preservation Act which
    specifies that although several states have granted supremacy to
    laws and treaties under the powers granted under the United States
    Constitution, the supremacy does not apply to federal laws that
    restrict or prohibit the manufacture, ownership, and use of
    firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition exclusively within the
    state except to the extent that they are necessary for the
    regulation of the land and naval forces of the United States Armed
    The bill specifies that all past, present, or future federal acts,
    laws, orders, rules, or regulations that infringe on the people's
    right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment
    to the United States Constitution and Article I, Section 23 of the
    Missouri Constitution are invalid, will not be recognized, are
    specifically rejected, and will be considered null and void and of
    no effect in this state.
    It is the duty of the courts and law enforcement agencies of the
    state to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and
    bear arms within the borders of the state, and no public officer or
    employee of the state has any authority to enforce or attempt to
    enforce any of the infringements on the right. Any official,
    agent, or employee of the federal government who enforces or
    attempts to enforce any of the infringements on the right is guilty
    of a class A misdemeanor.
    Any state citizen who has been subject to an effort to enforce any
    of the infringements on the right to keep and bear arms under these
    provisions will have a private cause of action for declaratory
    judgment and for damages against any person or entity attempting
    the enforcement.
    In any jurisdiction that prohibits the open carry of a firearm by
    ordinance, the prohibition is lifted if the person has a valid
    concealed carry endorsement from this state or a permit from
    another state that is recognized by this state in his or her
    possession at all times, he or she displays the endorsement or
    permit upon the demand of a law enforcement officer, and the
    firearm being openly carried is 16 inches or less in overall
    length. In the absence of any reasonable and articulable suspicion
    of criminal activity, a person carrying a concealed or unconcealed
    handgun cannot be disarmed or physically restrained by a law
    enforcement officer unless under arrest. Any concealed carry
    endorsement holder who violates these requirements may be issued a
    citation for an amount of up to $35, but it will not be a criminal
    Any school district may designate one or more elementary or
    secondary school teachers or administrators as a school protection
    officer, whose responsibilities and duties are voluntary and in
    addition to their normal responsibilities and duties. Any
    compensation for serving as a school protection officer must be
    funded by the local school district without using state funds.
    The bill authorizes a school protection officer to carry concealed
    firearms in any school in the district, but he or she must keep the
    firearm on his or her person at all times while on school property.
    A person violating these provisions must be removed immediately
    from the classroom and is subject to employment termination
    A school protection officer may detain any person the officer sees
    violating or any person who the officer has reasonable grounds to
    believe has violated any state law or school policy. Any person
    detained for violation of a state law must, as soon as practically
    possible, be turned over to a law enforcement officer. Any person
    detained for a violation of a school policy must be turned over to
    a school administrator as soon as practically possible. However, a
    person cannot be detained for more than four hours.
    The bill specifies the requirements to be designated as a school
    protection officer, including requesting the designation in writing
    to the school district superintendent, holding a valid concealed
    carry endorsement, and submitting a certificate of school
    protection officer training program completion from a program
    approved by the Director of the Department of Public Safety. Any
    school district that designates a teacher or administrator as a
    school protection officer must notify the department director in
    writing within 30 days that includes specified information.
    A school district may revoke the designation of a person as a
    school protection officer for any reason. The district must
    immediately notify the person in writing and must notify the
    department director in writing within 30 days of the revocation.
    The department director must maintain a listing of all persons
    designated as a school protection officer and make the list
    available to all law enforcement agencies. However, any
    identifying information collected is not considered public
    information and is not subject to an information request under the
    Open Meetings and Records Law, commonly known as the Sunshine Law.
    Any school employee who discloses any information to anyone, other
    than those authorized to receive it, will be guilty of a class B
    misdemeanor and will be subject to employment termination
    proceedings within the school district.
    Currently, a person with a valid concealed carry endorsement cannot
    carry a concealed firearm in any higher education institution or
    elementary or secondary school facility without the consent of the
    governing body or a school official or the district school board.
    The bill exempts any teacher or administrator of an elementary or
    secondary school who has been designated by his or her school
    district as a school protection officer and is carrying a firearm
    in a school within that district from the requirement of obtaining
    The substitute requires the Peace Officer Standards and Training
    Commission must establish minimum standards for the training of
    school protection officers, the minimum number of hours of
    training, and the curriculum for training programs and specifies
    the minimum training requirements. The commission must also
    establish minimum standards for school protection officer training
    instructors, training centers, and training programs. The director
    of the commission must develop and maintain a list of approved
    school protection officer training instructors, centers, and
    programs and make the list available to every school district in
    the state. The bill specifies the information that must be
    submitted by each person seeking entrance into a school protection
    officer training center or program. A certificate of school
    protection officer training program completion may be issued to any
    applicant by any approved instructor affirming that the person has
    taken and passed a program that meets all requirements specified in
    the bill and that the person has a valid concealed carry
    A person or entity cannot publish the name, address, or other
    identifying information of any individual who owns a firearm or who
    is an applicant for or holder of any license, certificate, permit,
    or endorsement that allows the person to own, acquire, possess, or
    carry a firearm. Any person or entity violating these provisions
    is guilty of a class A misdemeanor.
    A licensed health care professional cannot be required by law to
    inquire if a patient owns a firearm, document or maintain in a
    patient's medical records if the patient owns a firearm, or notify
    any governmental entity of the identity of a patient based solely
    on his or her status as a firearm owner. These provisions cannot
    be construed as prohibiting or restricting a health care
    professional from requesting or documenting the information if it
    is necessitated or medically indicated by the professional's scope
    of practice and it does not violate any other state or federal law.
    The bill changes the minimum age at which a person can be issued a
    concealed carry endorsement from 21 years of age to 19 years of
    No county, municipality, or other governmental body or an agent of
    the entity may participate in any program in which an individual is
    given a thing of value in exchange for surrendering a firearm to
    the entity unless it has adopted a resolution, ordinance, or rule
    authorizing the participation in the program and the resolution,
    ordinance, or rule provides that any firearm received must be
    offered for sale or trade to a licensed firearms dealer. The
    proceeds from any sale or gains from a trade must be the property
    of the entity unless the proceeds are collected by a sheriff, in
    which case the proceeds must be deposited in the county sheriff's
    revolving fund. Any firearm remaining in the possession of the
    entity after it has been offered for sale or trade to at least two
    licensed firearms dealers must be destroyed.

    HB 533 -- FIREARMS (Riddle)
    COMMITTEE OF ORIGIN: Committee on General Laws
    COMMITTEE ACTION: Voted "Do Pass" by the Committee on General Laws
    by a vote of 9 to 4.
    This bill specifies that a person who is found guilty or pleads
    guilty or nolo contendere to a prior felony offense and who commits
    a subsequent felony offense in which the person possesses,
    displays, brandishes, threatens to use, attempts to use, or
    discharges any firearm will be guilty of the offense of unlawful
    possession or use of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
    The offense will be in addition to and not in lieu of any
    underlying felony offense or other offense for which the person may
    be charged.
    The bill specifies that a person who commits the offense by
    possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony will be
    subject to 10 years imprisonment; by displaying, brandishing,
    threatening to use, or attempting to use a firearm during the
    commission of a felony will be subject to 20 years imprisonment;
    and by discharging a firearm during the commission of a felony will
    be subject to a term of life imprisonment. The terms of
    imprisonment must be imposed consecutively to any other terms of
    imprisonment imposed for any other felony offense.
    The bill exempts law enforcement officers or United States military
    personnel who are performing their lawful duties or who are
    traveling to or from their places of employment or assignment from
    these provisions.
    The bill specifies that a person commits the crime of unlawful use
    of weapons if he or she knowingly possesses a firearm while also
    knowingly in possession of controlled substances that are
    sufficient for a felony violation.
    This bill specifies that the state cannot prohibit any state
    employee from having a firearm in his or her vehicle on state
    property, provided the vehicle is locked and the firearm is not
    visible. These provisions apply only to the state as an employer,
    when the state employee's vehicle is on property owned or leased by
    the state, and the state employee is conducting activities within
    the scope of his or her employment.

    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!
