Pending Missouri gun legislation transcript:

Hi, I’m John Schleiffarth, Independent Program Attorney for U.S. LawShield in Missouri.

I’m coming to you with a legislative update about proposed bills that could become law in Missouri.

The first one I want to talk about is House Bill 458.

House Bill 458 would add additional protections for citizens who own firearms and would like to keep them in their car on an employer-owned parking lot. The bill would prevent employers from retaliating against employees who have guns that they bring with them in their cars to work.

This is a good bill. It looks like it may pass.

The next bill I’d like to discuss is House Bill 185. House Bill 185 has been proposed to create harsh new penalties against gun owners who don’t quickly report a lost or stolen firearm to

the state. Those harsh new penalties could even include jail time.

I’m opposed to this bill and I don’t think this bill will make it into law. However, we’re going to keep an eye on it.

The final bill I like to discuss is House Bill 366. House Bill 366 with that extra unnecessary steps to the purchase of a firearm in Missouri. This bill does not have a lot of support. I don’t see it getting out of committee. I don’t see it passing. That’s a good thing for Missouri.
