Even in the old wild west, towns collected guns from those entering the city limits. Obviously, they didn’t think to take an “originalist” look at the Constitution.
Missouri is smarter than traditional real Americans still discovering the country.
Missouri lawmakers passed yet another dangerous pro-gun law this year … this one would allow people to carry a concealed weapon — with no training and no permit.
Basically, it’s called constitutional carry. No limits. Could it be our genius founding fathers wanted everyone to have a load gun with them?
Finally saying what I never found the right words to say myself, and combining “constitutional carry” with “stand your ground/Castle Doctrine” laws:
Sen. Jason Holsman, a Kansas City Democrat noted: “We’re essentially authorizing a citizen without training to have a firearm. Then another citizen who is afraid that that citizen has a firearm can shoot and kill them, because they feel they’re in fear for their life because that untrained citizen has a firearm.”
That’s what this whole thing is going to meltdown to someday, if it isn't already happening.
Oh, and speaking of Missouri's "stand your ground" law...that was also changed, as Sen. Holsman indicated above....
The lawmakers also approved a controversial “stand your ground law” ... It would expand the self-defense claim that citizens already can use in a shooting to make them even more likely to get away with an unjustified shooting.
