Bill to Allow Concealed Carry on Public Transportation Advances in the Missouri State Legislature

Missouri has been on a tear lately when it comes to embracing the right to keep and bear arms. This legislative session is no different.  Sponsored by Representative Adam Schnelting (R-104), House Bill 1462 looks to expand concealed-carry rights in the Show-Me State. In particular, the bill aims to allow those with concealed carry permits the ability to carry when traveling on public transportation.  It also removes the prohibition on carrying with a license in a place of worship.  Additionally, the bill drops the minimum age to obtain a concealed carry permit from 19 to 18 years of age.  The Missouri House has just passed House Bill 1462 by an impressive 101-40 vote. The bill now moves on for consideration in the Missouri State Senate.
