GOA Praises MO Republicans for Overriding Gov. Nixon’s Veto and Establishing Constitutional Carry!

Springfield, VA -- Gun Owners of America applauded Republican legislators in Missouri for overriding Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of Constitutional Carry legislation.

“This is a fantastic day,” said GOA Executive Director Erich Pratt.  “Four states have adopted permitless carry this year.  So Missouri’s action in overriding the Governor’s veto brings the total number of states with Constitutional Carry to twelve.”

Gun Owners of America mobilized its grassroots members on several occasions this year -- see here and here as recent examples -- in support of this Constitutional Carry legislation.  Billionaire Michael Bloomberg was very active in the state, opposing the legislation, but to no avail.  Permitless carry will now take effect in Missouri on January 1, 2017.  (See our Facebook/Twitter meme that GOA posted.)

“Law-abiding citizens should not have to ask for permission to exercise a constitutionally-protected right,” Pratt said.  “That’s the beauty of Constitutional Carry, it honors the Second Amendment which says the right to keep and BEAR arms ‘shall not be infringed.’”

Erich Pratt is the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America.  Either Pratt, or another GOA spokesperson, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over 1.5 million gun owners.
