Hi, I’m John Schleiffarth, Independent Program
Attorney for U.S. LawShield in Missouri. I’m coming to you with a legislative update
about proposed bills that could become law in Missouri. The first one I want to talk about is House
Bill 458. House Bill 458 would add additional protections
for citizens who own firearms and would like to keep them in their car on an employer-owned
parking lot. The bill would prevent employers from retaliating
against employees who have guns that they bring with them in their cars to work. This is a good bill. It looks like it may pass. The next bill I’d like to discuss is House
Bill 185. House Bill 185 has been proposed to create
harsh new penalties against gun owners who don’t quickly report a lost or stolen firearm to
the state. Those harsh new penalties could even include jail time. I’m opposed to this bill and I don’t think this bill will
make it into law. However, we’re going to keep an eye on it. The final bill I like to discuss is House
Bill 366. House Bill 366 with that extra unnecessary
steps to the purchase of a firearm in Missouri. This bill does not have a lot of support. I don’t see it getting out of committee. I don’t see it passing. That’s a good thing for Missouri.
