Question?? How would Missourians act differently if a CCW law passed tomorrow?

    Got to wondering...Just how different life would be in Missouri if a CCW law passed tomorrow?

    How many "closeted" gun fans would step forward and arm themselves?

    Do LE officers usually support or oppose CCW? Why?

    What are the usual requirements to get a CCW in other states?

    What disqualification factors usually prevent you from getting a CCW permit?

    Could a business owner prevent you from entering his business site with a legally concealed gun?

    What other changes might impact Missourians if/when a CCW law passes?

    well one benefit would be to shut up the anti's !!! before the CCW here in Guntucky, they were all making outrageuos scenarios. like we were back in the old west, shoot outs in every saloon, traffic incidents becoming battle zones, robbery and mayhem would increase and on and on. well their predictions fell flat!!!!! now they only grumble.:target:
    MoDoc and Tracer like this.

    Colorado is going for a Statewide CCW law. Same thing here,gunbattles all over,criminals taking away your gun and shooting you with it,etc. Hasn't happened anywhere else,but they keep trying the S.O.S.

    Well, unless people in Missouri are very strange, there should be a lrge decrease in violent crimes about a month after the law is passed. This is due primarily to career criminals taking greater care not confront potentially armed citizens.

    If Ohio passed a CCW, I'd be in line faster than lightning. I really miss living in KY, because you can go armed all the time.
    I imagine the crime rate here would go down DRASTICALLY.
    As far as the supporting/non-supporting law enforcement agencies, the FOP and the Buckeye Sheriff's Union are supporters of CCW, while the Ohio Chiefs of Police and the Highway Patrol are against it. The only reason the HP is against it is if they endorse it, and it goes haywire, they just got a black eye. The OCP is against it, but only at the top levels. They seem to think that policemen were born policemen, and that's final. I know of many chiefs who would like to see CCW legal, as it would make their jobs, and the street officers' jobs, easier. But, the "smile-for-the-camera-and-shake-the-nice-ladys'/gentlemans'-hand-for-the-newspaper" chiefs don't want it, mainly because they don't know about their own guns that they carry everyday.

    I think it is a form of registration ! What "Agentcy" is going to keep the records/list of gun owner/carriers . IF they register "the" gun , they bring the search warrant for "the" gun and the search stops with the gun . IF they register the "carrier" they bring the search warrant for " any and all consealable weapons" ,the search doesn't stop.
