Show Me Change In Gun Control

The Show Me state, my place of birth, today had reasonable changes in gun control laws enacted.

This is not a new "assault weapon" ban, a ban on large capacity magazines or ban handguns in the state capitol. Nor is this change to restrict purchases to one gun a month.

Missouri enacted its Castle Doctrine law. No longer will unscrupulous Nifong's (I apologize for the redundancy) be able to bring charges against home owners who shoot intruders.

Also the principal tool for discriminating against those deemed "undesirable" as firearms owners, the legal requirement to go to the county sheriff and obtain a permit to purchase a handgun has been eliminated.

These changes are powerful statements to the criminal class; stay away from our homes. Here you are the prey not the predator.
