Missourians deserve Second Amendment protections

    Your second amendment rights don’t stop at your property line. We live in a world where liberals call to defund our police and lawlessness runs rampant. Self-defense has never been more important. That’s why I have filed Senate Bill 1229 to ensure your rights—and your homes—are protected by state law.

    I went to school in St. James my entire life and graduated in 1975 as a proud Tigers basketball fan. Our basketball boys went to the state tournament that year. Coach Farris was something special. We had four straight years of exciting, winning boys basketball teams back then. Coach Farris is now in the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
