Legislators on Monday presented three bills about firearms to the House Emerging Issues Committee, with the National Rifle Association testifying in favor of all three.
State Rep. Eric Burlison, R-Springfield, said he sought to make it so that all those who openly carried guns would also be able to conceal-carry in public places, other than those listed in statute, such as schools, courts and houses of worship.
“What this bill does is it addresses what I think is the most important thing: We should not be placing a financial burden, a tax, on someone” who simply wants to exercise his or her Second Amendment rights, Burlison said.
The financial burden would be cost of a concealed-carry permit. The bill would allow Missourians to carry concealed weapons without having a permit with them. The bill caused confusion at the hearing.
“This would allow all those who don’t have any training at all to carry concealed weapons,” state Rep. Jeremy Lafaver, D-Kansas City, said during the hearing.
