Gun control measures failed in the U.S. Senate last week, but Missouri lawmakers pushed through legislation related to the Second Amendment.

The legislative action is a reflection of the sentiment in the statehouse, which has been present all year. Soon after the school shooting in Connecticut, state lawmakers anticipating federal gun-control action began filing bills meant to protect Second Amendment freedoms and states’ rights.

    This don't address if I have to remove my gun while picking up a grand child from school, since they make you walk up to the door to get them, (which I think is a Good Thing), but as I have said in the past, my gun is of NO danger to the GOOD people, if it is on my person, if you require me to take it off to walk up to the door to pick up a Grand Child, then for those minutes it is not under My control !! And I think anyone under the age of 21 yrs old should Have to have Military experience before getting a CCW,,,,, we don't need any of these kids with their Pants dragging the ground, showing the top 12 inches of their underwear to be carrying any firearms because it's obvious that they are not Mature enough !!

    "And I think anyone under the age of 21 yrs old should Have to have Military experience before getting a CCW"
    Since when does having "military experience" make you a "firearms expert" or even sane for that matter? The prisons are literally full of ex military personnel and aren't there several 1 percenter motorcycle gangs started by ex military after WW2?
    Oh you must be talking about people like Timothy McVeigh. Now there was an expert....................

    I know a whole lot of veterans that I wouldn't want anywhere near a weapon in a tense situation, let alone having one concealed.

    I don't think their should be an age limit. There should be a maturity limit. I know several adults who aren't mature enough to responsibly handle a firearm. And I'm sure there are young adults even under 18 who are responsible enough.

    ditto
    i've even had military training and sent to a combat zone and for those 2 years i had no training that had any bearing on what's required for concealed carry here.
