Hey all, I can be found more on the Washington and Arizona forums, but it has recently been brought to my attention that I may move to Missouri for work post graduation. I love open carrying here in Arizona and my style of carry leads me to OC more anyway. My questions are about the reception in your state capitol to changing the preemption law to include OC, or at the very least include those who have a CCW endorsement. Is there a lobbying effort in place to expand carry laws in MO similar to AZ's Arizona Citizens Defense League? I find it odd that KC allows OC and STL does not. Are there comparative crime stats in each respective city? I wonder if your proximity to the 2A hell hole called Illinois has something to do with the unique restrictions in MO? Carry On!
There are several efforts, even independent efforts and there is an effort to try and develop a group push that is coming together, it has a ways to go, but folks are trying to put heads together and get something done, it is a tough one as it is not a popular topic but that is being worked on too
while OC may be illegal in St. Louis City, it is but a small portion of the STL Metro area. there must be 100 or so individual municipalities there that may or may not have OC ordinances. and of those where it is legal, the reception of OC may or may not be favorable. working thru the laws is difficult at best.
yes, some of us are diligently working towards full preemption. at the capitol there seems to be a split on the subject. i have hopes that there will be a new voice in Jefferson City come January....a collective voice of the public.
while there are many soldiers on the front lines, they sometimes lack direction. a few of us are trying to change that. stay tuned, things might just get interesting.
I'm the one who's gotta die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life the way I want to.
