FIRST REGULAR SESSION
HOUSE BILL NO. 593 [pdf]
99TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY

INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVE MCDANIEL.
1291H.01I D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk

AN ACT

To repeal sections 571.030, 571.107, 571.215, 577.703, and 577.712, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof five new sections relating to firearms, with penalty provisions.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
[….]
2. A person shall not carry a weapon readily capable of lethal use onto any private property whose owner has posted the premises as being off-limits to such weapons by means of one or more signs displayed in a conspicuous place of a minimum size of eleven inches by fourteen inches with the writing thereon in letters of not less than one inch. A violation of this subsection shall not be a criminal act but may subject the person to denial
of admission to the premises or removal from the premises. If such person refuses to leave the premises and a peace officer is summoned, such person may be issued a citation for an amount not to exceed one hundred dollars for the first offense. If a second citation for a similar violation occurs within a six-month period, such person shall be fined an amount not to exceed two hundred dollars and, if he or she has a permit to carry concealed firearms, then such permit shall be suspended for a period of one year. If such person does not have a permit to carry concealed firearms then a permit shall not be issued for a period of one year from the date of the violation. If a third citation for a similar violation is issued within one year of the first citation, such person shall be fined an amount not to exceed five hundred dollars and shall have any Missouri lifetime or extended concealed carry permit revoked. Such person shall not be eligible for a new or renewed Missouri lifetime or extended concealed carry permit or a concealed carry permit issued under sections 571.101 29 to 571.121 for a period of three years. Upon conviction of charges arising from a citation issued under this subsection, the court shall notify the sheriff of the county which issued the Missouri lifetime or extended concealed carry permit. The sheriff shall, if necessary, suspend or revoke the Missouri lifetime or extended concealed carry permit.

[emphasis in original]

Gee, you’d have to post your own home.

The prohibitions on concealed carry in churches, schools, and higher education, among other places, are removed in the bill.
