Nope. It's a bs useless piece of garbage that a veto proof majority screwed up. These idiots have blown our shot at this. Gives me another reason to move to Kansas.
I work for St. Louis County Justice Services and what they call "Request for fiscal impact" for TAFP ....SB 656 (5082-04) just hit my email this morning.
These go out to administrators of any affected departments, school districts and the like to get our input for how the proposed law might impact us financially, operationally or otherwise. Sometimes they ask for Urgent Input to speak against or for a bill....but this one they did not.
My supervisor was somewhat surprised that I already had full knowledge of this bill and the changes being proposed and probably wasn't expecting the earful that I gave him on the open carry side of it. The only input I had, because like it or not, facilities like ours have become the new mental health institutions thanks to the closing of several mental health facilities in MO under former Gov. Holden's watch.....was the this:
No health care professional licensed in this state shall use an electronic medical record program that requires, in order to complete and save a medical record, entry of data regarding whether a patient owns, has access to, or lives in a home containing a firearm.
My suggestion was simply: Pay attention to the health care wording!
I've attached the proposed law for easy access and because mine is 35 pages compared to the 28 page one attached in the first post (not sure what was added beside the header page) but I'm guessing most of us have read/reviewed it.

encounter with local leo in st. Louis muni..officer says he always disarms ccw people so he
can run serial number...what's with that..I informed him with new bill in legislation that would be
an unlawfull act to disarm with out making arrest merely for snooping purpose of valid ccw carriers,
and could lead to lawsuit against officer with out his being able to hide behind immunity....
please comment about what to say when told they want to check your weapon for serial number
to show not stolen firearm...thanks for all the good work in getting us here...wonder how st. Louis city
will act after new law is signed or let become valid by inaction
Actually, this bill was not screwed up....it is what it is. It never contained an element SAPA.
Please tell me what is useless about this bill? Lowering the age to CCW? Allow schools to have teachers trained as School Protection Officers? Voiding local ordinances on OCing (with a CCW)?
If you are criticizing the bill because there is no SAPA; then you need to research and see which bills contained SAPA. I'll help you a little; try HB1439 and SB613.
Plain and simple, the nullification of federal laws and/or charges against Fed LEOs is very touchy with most states legislatures. This is no exception to MO. The SJR36 that is going to be on the ballot this fall will help (in my opinion) push SAPA through. If the voters of MO approve; this will help a great deal in securing continuity for the years to come in 2A legal battles. And hopefully, it will encourage legislators to enact a better SAPA.
It was the fall back bill. I'm well aware of the differences. Doesn't matter if we're not committed to upholding the constitution in light of federal overreach.
