Missouri: The Shoot-Me State – The New York Times
Missouri Republicans just stripped law enforcement of necessary authority and allowed people to forgo a gun permit or training.
I mean what could go wrong?
"The law will let citizens carry concealed weapons in public without a state gun permit, criminal background check or firearms training. It strips local law enforcement of its current authority to deny firearms to those guilty of domestic violence and to other high-risk individuals. And it establishes a dangerous “stand your ground” standard that will allow gun owners to shoot and claim self-defense based on their own sense of feeling threatened."
