In spite of St Louis County and St Louis City dragging their feet on issue, I think this is a good choice. Missouri itself is a new carry state and will benefit greatly and, as the article says, it is reasonably close for a lot of people. Additionally, Illinois is right across the river and a well behaved group of gun owners so close by may have a little political influence.

".shall not be infringed." What is not understood?

Good job NRA! Pick a state where you have to get a permit to buy a concealable firearm and title II firearms are banned. Just goes to show - NRA only cares about the FUDDS.

Title II firearms aren't banned in MO - just ask John Ross.

OTOH, suppressors are.

What I find odd is St. Louis City (as opposed to St. Louis County) hasn't allowed a gun show in years...

Um... John Ross is a FFL who pays his SOT, he can own them. Joe Blow who does not hold a FFL (including C&R) can not own a machine gun in MO.

It is unlawful to knowingly possess, manufacture, transport, repair or sell a machine gun without the appropriate federal license. A machine gun is any firearm that is capable of firing more than one shot automatically, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.

It is unlawful to knowingly possess, manufacture, transport, repair or sell any rifle of less than 16 inch barrel length, shotgun of less than 18 inch barrel length, rifle or shotgun of less than 26 inch overall length, any silencer, any switchblade, or explosive bullets. The use or possession of "metal penetrating bullets`` during the commission of a crime is a felony.

Missouri Gun Laws from NRA (http://www.nraila.org/GunLaws/StateLaws.aspx?ST=MO)

Correct, but all it takes is a C&R FFL to permit a MO resident to own Title II items (both C&R & modern), so you can't really say they're banned here - just one extra hoop to jump through.

Anyway, I'm surprised St. Louis City would welcome the NRA's business, and I'm surprised the NRA would give it to them.

And if your C&R FFL expires?

St Louis - Total Est. Time: 8 hours, 9 minutes

Columbus - 3 hours, 45 minutes

I don't like it, but I understand it.

At the last gun show in the city, I heard a shot. This was down at what is now the WhateverNameOfTheYear Dome. Some bubba doofus had brought something in, or something, and anywho, the round bounced off the floor and hit someone in the leg. Presto, no more gun shows in STL city. Still in Edwardsville, Belleville, Fenton, Overland, Wentzville, etc., etc...

Campers, if I'm still living here, I've got a housepest room with a double bed, three sofas, a loveseat, and a futon. And a trailer and a van. And plenty of floor space.

And a liking for good coffee.

Drat. I was hoping for San Francisco. ;) Well, okay then, Reno?

Ah well.

Anheuser-Busch has contributed to pro-gun causes, including the passage of the CCW law. They are based in St. Louis. It must not be a total den of stupidity.
