Some Missouri leaders are calling Governor Jay Nixon to veto a wide-ranging gun bill that would establish a “stand your ground” law and eliminate the need for a permit to carry a concealed firearm. The bill lowers the penalty for carrying a concealed weapon where it’s not allowed and allows invited guests in a home to use deadly force on intruders. The measure was approved on the final day of the 2016 legislative session. Nixon has until mid-July to decide whether to veto the legislation. Opponents say the bill would put citizens in danger, and invite more gun violence on the streets. Lake-area lawmakers have so-far remained quiet on the legislation.
