Mo. Senate Panel Endorses Protecting Gun Owners

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri Senate panel has endorsed legislation making it illegal for employers to discriminate against current or prospective workers who have concealed weapon permits or have used a legal firearm.

The measure would prohibit refusing to hire an applicant solely because the person has used a firearm for a legal purpose, such as self-defense.

Employers would also be prohibited from classifying job applicants differently based on whether they have a concealed carry permit or have used a gun in the past.

The House passed the bill last month. The Senate’s general laws committee approved it on a 12-0 vote Tuesday, sending it to the full Senate.


Firearms measure is HB1621
