Missouri Governor talks about guns during State of the State

Governor Parson’s State of the State address on Wednesday included proposing ways to fight violent crime. Parson says he wants Missouri’s laws strengthened that target violent criminals, like gun ownership restrictions for minors and domestic abusers.

Some state lawmakers are not on board with the idea and say such measures would violate the Second Amendment. His 30 billion dollar budget plan unveiled also includes adding four more Highway Patrol troopers to work on St. Louis highways and one million dollars to protect crime victims and witnesses during investigations.
