Governor Mike Parson doesn’t seem to be wading into recent demands of about 50 GOP Missouri state lawmakers that Republican U.S. Senator Roy Blunt immediately withdraw his support for federal gun legislation, A bipartisan group of U.S. Senators has reportedly completed the broad strokes of a measure that would enhance background checks, allocate more money for mental health treatment and add so-called “red flag” laws.

The latter is an effort to keep firearms out of the hands of people who may be a danger to themselves or others.
The governor says that he’s confident Missouri will have the final say-so on any changes.



Senator Blunt has stated he is open to discussion of gun regulation legislation.
