Victory In Missouri

The governor’s veto of Constitutional carry legislation in Missouri has been over-ridden.  I think that makes Missouri the 11th state in the nation to enact such legislation.  What it means to state citizens is that if they can legally own a firearm they can carry it concealed without obtaining a permit to do so.  One of the major arguments of the law’s detractors was the lack of a training requirement.  I fully understand that concern, and it does concern me too, but there are many poor and elderly people that simply could not afford the permit fees for a CCW license.  Just because you are retired on a fixed income should not cause you to lose your right of self defense.  Same for a single mom struggling to make ends meet.  Perhaps her ex is violent and refuses to acknowledge her restraining order.

All in all I must agree with Jefferson: “I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

    Why does it have to be a legal? All men means everybody. If the good guys carried, there will be much more effective way to decrease gun murders. Why should I be refused from arming myself if the spouse lied and had me arrested for domestic assault. The case was dismissed and was supposed to be erased but because I was arrested for DV I can’t buy a gun.

  2. Excellent News and a BIg +1 on not excluding people from exercising their rights due to income requirements.

    Here in TX I have been writing letters to my Congressman and Senators requesting Veterans be EXEMPT from all Concealed Carry Fees. At first they wanted to say if you were a Veteran you could claim you were INDIGENT and get the REDUCED RATE, I disagree with this across the board. Why should we make our Proud Men and Women who Fought for this country stoop so low as to claim they are INDIGENT!! No, they should be Exempt from All Fees.

    Anyways, the good fight continues and one state at a time we are getting there with Constitutional Carry being the ultimate goal for ALL.

    Regards.

    • Yes, our veterans have already paid a high price, mostly to preserve the rights of others. It is an abomination that they should be required to pay for a license to exercise a God-given right. The license turns that right into a privilege, which is un-Constitutional at best and a sin against God at its worst. The Constitution in its original intent must be reinstated as the highest law of the land.
