Under current law, a citizen must take a class, then submit paperwork to the local County Sheriff who then has up to 120 days to issue a Conceal Carry Weapons Permit. The main issue is that several women have come forward who have been victims of stalkers, and even after they passed a background check at a gun store, the women were forced to wait 120 days for a permit to carry the gun in their purse. According to FBI statistics , over 1,500 women are killed each year by their stalker, even after they have obtained a restraining order. The women had a terrible choice, as one put it “either break the law and live or follow the law and die.” The women didn’t want to be identified for obvious reasons. The author of the bill, Assembly Candidate Jim Marchant, came into the studio for comment. “see video:” Missouri passed a Constitutional Carry law last week, over the veto of the Democratic Governor, making it the 11th state in the US to do so. According to public crime records, those states with Constitutional Carry laws have a lower crime rate than Nevada.
