Expanded Gun Rights Not On The Table Right Now

In the wake of last week’s mass shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl celebration, a top Missouri Republican says now is not the time for two bills that would expand gun rights. House Majority Leader Jon Patterson, of Lee’s Summit, says legislation that would allow guns on public transportation and in churches will take a back seat. So will another attempt to exempt guns and ammunition from sales taxes. House Democratic Leader Crystal Quade, who was at the Chiefs celebration, thinks she knows why the plug was pulled on these bills.

Several House Democrats plan to file a resolution this week that would give local government more power to make their own public safety laws.
