HesseMartone Attorney Testifies Before Missouri Senate

HesseMartone Attorney Virginia Lay provided Senate testimony regarding SB613—a controversial gun bill that loosens gun restrictions and could nullify some existing guns laws.  If passed, this law would

  • nullify all federal gun laws;
  • allow the open carry of firearms up to 16 inches in length;
  • lower the age for concealed-carry permit holders from 21 to 19;
  • allow school districts to designate one or more teachers or administrators as armed school protection officers;
  • specify that no licensed health care professional may be required by law to ask a patient if he/she owns a firearm; and
  • prevent conceal-carry permit holders from being disarmed or physically restrained by law enforcement officers unless under arrest.
