Audio: A Bill in the Missouri House would ban some gun free zones

Gun Free Zone

People with concealed carry permits could be allowed to take firearms into Missouri places like government buildings, polling places, churches, public hospitals, and public colleges.

During a Missouri House committee hearing Monday, Representative Jered Taylor of Nixa says he is proposing eliminating some gun-free zones.

 

 

Taylor says permit holders could help protect the public in these cases. St. Louis Democrat Peter Merideth says people should reflect on who is a good guy and who might no longer be a good guy in the wrong situation.

Taylor says gun-free zones are easy targets for criminals to carry out mass shootings. During a public hearing Monday, Lee’s Summit Democrat Keri Ingle says she has a problem with allowing guns into public hospitals.

 

 

The committee has not yet voted on the measure.
