The battle to protect the Second Amendment never ends. Americans who value their right to bear arms need to be constantly vigilant, keeping an eye on all levels of government as liberals try everything they can to disarm law abiding citizens.
In Missouri, Republicans in the state Senate were wrestling with the Democratic governor (and well-funded activists) over a carry permit law, and scored a huge victory in the legislature.
On September 14 Missouri lawmakers in the House and Senate overrode Governor Jay Nixon’s (D) veto of SB 656, thereby recognizing the Second Amendment as the only carry permit law-abiding Missourians need. (…)
Democrats and Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety had argued against the bill, claiming the lack of a permit requirement would endanger public safety. (…)
In Missouri, the NRA, Breitbart News, and others continually pointed out that SB 656 was about self-defense and making it easier for law-abiding citizens to be ready to defend their own lives and the lives of their families. (…)
Missouri now joins Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Montana, Vermont, Wyoming, and West Virginia on the list of states that recognize the Second Amendment as a sufficient concealed carry permit for law-abiding residents.
The momentum seems to be on the side of the constitutional conservatives on this issue. In Missouri, they proved that they could go up against gun grabbers with deep pockets and win.
