Good news in St. Louis

A snag in Missouri's concealed weapons law was fixed on Tuesday, so that now law-abiding citizens of St. Louis (city and county) should be able to carry:
Legislative supporters said the bill eliminates any legal wiggle room for counties to continue to refuse to issue the permits.

'It ends all the Supreme Court challenges, all of the objections that the chief law enforcement officers have,' said Sen. Jason Crowell, R-Cape Girardeau, an attorney who handled the bill.

The Senate passed the bill 29-3. The House passed the same bill 142-7 in March.

Because it contains an emergency clause, the bill will become law as soon as Blunt signs it, instead of on the state's traditional Aug. 28 start date for new laws.
tnx to Alphecca
