Missouri House Passes Concealed Guns Bill

Jefferson City, MO – The Missouri House today passed a bill to
allow most civilians to apply for a license to carry hidden guns.

The bill would let people age 21 and older request a concealed gun permit. They'd also have to complete a gun-safety training
course.

Concealed firearms would be banned in prisons, airports, schools, arenas and other public places.

Businesses also would be allowed to ban concealed guns by posting a sign.

The bill goes now to the Senate.

Governor Holden has said he will veto any concealed weapons legislation.
