Missouri First reports that, “With a party line 4 – 2 vote, the Missouri Senate General Laws Committee voted to send SB 325 on to the full senate for consideration.” However, there’s a lot of work to be done yet. For one,  the president pro tem, Sen. Tom Dempsey, must place it on the calendar promptly and then majority floor leader, Sen. Ron Richard, must carve out valuable time on the senate floor for debate.


1.  Call the following two senators and respectfully, but firmly, let them know you want to see SB325 get a vote – a YES vote – in the Senate

  • Call Sen. Tom Dempsey: (573) 751-1141
  • Call Sen. Ron Richard at: (573) 751-2173)

Call in the evenings or over the weekend.  If you reach a voicemail, leave your message in support of SB325 and ask for a return call as well.

2.  Contact your own state senator.  Be strong and respectful – and let them know that you want to see nothing less than a YES vote on SB325.

Caleb Jones, will vote on this bill soon. Unfortunately, there is also some talk about rolling some other gun rights bills into HB 436.

  • E-mail Rep. Jones at Caleb.Jones@house.mo.gov.  Let him know that you’d like to see HB436 passed AS-IS.

Schaefer caught the DoR in a lie about their acceptance of grants from the federal Department of Homeland Security. Listen to this 5 minute exchange he had with the directors. YouTube Audio

Going far beyond a Freedom of Information Request, the Senate subpoenaed the department, demanding documentation under the force of law. Here’s the subpoena
