The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly in State Legislation

GGS Monthly Meeting & Program
Monday, June 26
4:00 – 5:30 pm
Colonial Church in Prairie Village, 7039 Mission Road

Now-ended legislative sessions in Missouri and Kansas had it all: gun-related proposals that reformers considered good, bad, and even ugly.

Proposed gun legislation that affected school districts’ curriculum, public transportation, concealed carry permits, safe storage requirements, and criminal negligence of discharging a firearm all crossed legislators’ desks this year.

At the meeting we’ll hear legislators from both states review the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bills that were introduced, retrace the bills’ paths to approval or defeat and preview what to expect in the 2024 session. Sen. Lauren Arthur and Rep. Emily Weber will discuss Missouri and Sen. Ethan Corson and Rep. Linda Featherston will cover Kansas.

We’ll also have a new advocacy postcard to send to legislators. We’re committed to contacting our elected officials until they meet our demands for common sense gun reform.

Join us June 26 in the church sanctuary on the first floor to get the full legislative picture. (Parking is now available on the south side lot and in the back on the east side.)
