New here, but been with illinois carry for quite a while now praying to someday get a ccw in illinois. anyways my question is this...In late march some friends of mine and i are taking a hiking trip in southern missouri along the ozark trail current river section...I know that missouri is an open carry state but i had heard at one time that OC wasn't allowed inside of national parks and riverways, i have also heard that a law was recently past allowing OC in national parks as long as it coincides with state laws. would i be allowed to OC while on our hiking trip??? and if so could someone point me to the exact literature that states so. Like here in illinois...a person is allowed to carry a pistol in a glove box or console uncased being as how the glove box or console is technically considered a case and there is no restriction on magazines loaded or not providing they are not in the pistol. Now not every cop in illinois knows that soalong with my pistol i carry a copy on the bill that allows me this right. When i go to missouri if i can carry i would also find in beneficial to keep my right in writing on my person just in case.
thanks guys Kyle
You can find our weapon offenses here. I think its 2/22, that the fed law goes into effect. I don't see any issues with it, do not carry in any buildings owned by state or federal gov.
Section 1. Subdivision (8) "into any building owned or occupied by any agency of the federal government...)
unless you have a ccw, then
Subsection #4. Subdivisions (1), (8), and (10) of subsection 1 of this section shall not apply to any person who has a valid concealed carry endorsement issued pursuant to sections 571.101 to 571.121 or a valid permit or endorsement to carry concealed firearms issued by another state or political subdivision of another state.
Also, let us know what cities you will be in and we can try to research those for you also.
Just my opinion, but that's the way I read it. Just to make sure, your talking about Van Buren, Mo correct? That is very nice part of the state...make sure you carry at least a .40 or they might laugh at you.
Lets see if others have a different opinion or live down that way and know for sure.
