Armed citizens less likely to commit crimes.

A report has just been released that refutes the left’s claim that gun cause crime. Quite the contrary says the report.

WMSA was very successful last year raffling an AR (M4 clone). It was so successful that we’re doing it again!  This time, instead of an AR, we’re raffling a semiautomatic AK-47 clone by Century Arms. It will be a short-term raffle, the drawing for the AK will be at the Missouri Valley Collectors Association Gunshow on July 30, 2016.

Nixon vetoed SB656, now what?

Nixon has vetoed the Omnibus Firearms bill, SB656. That bill contained numerous improvements to Missouri law for firearm owners and for concealed, and unconcealed, carriers. The bill was passed last Spring with a veto proof majority in both Houses of the Legislature. Many of our members in the Legislature have vowed to repeat their vote in September to override Nixon’s veto.

What we must do now and through the vote in September is to call, write, and email all our Representatives and Representatives and urge them to vote of override SB656’s veto. We must be polite but firm. No threats but a gentle reminder that gunowners helped put them in office and the General election is coming in November.

Nixon’s excuse for his veto was one item, Missouri’s version of Constitutional Carry. It was the old “Blood in the Streets!” theme that has NEVER come true anywhere in the US. Well, perhaps only in those liberal enclaves like Chicago.

Please read Kevin Jamison’s comment below and follow his lead.


Governor Nixon has vetoed SB656.  He claims that it would allow persons to conceal weapons if a background check found a felony conviction (he’s talking about an SIS, a Suspended Imposition of Sentence,) or if the sheriff thought them a danger to the community.  The veto session is important.  We have to get those cards and letters going.

Kevin L. Jamison, President, WMSA

 

 

Nixon vetos SB656

As expected, Governor Jay Nixon vetoed SB656 at the last minute.


Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon vetoes bill allowing concealed carry without training

Nixon, a Democrat, said the legislation would “make Missouri less safe”

The bill also contains a provision creating a “stand your ground” law

Both the House and Senate passed the legislation with enough votes to override Nixon’s veto
