JEFFERSON CITY | Missouri businesses would have to allow properly licensed people to carry concealed guns in their parking lots under a bill approved by the House.
Businesses can currently choose to ban concealed weapons on their property.
House members approved the bill today by a 113-40 vote. The legislation now goes to the Senate.
Under the bill, businesses would not be responsible for injuries or attacks on their property, unless a similar incident had happened in the previous two years.
Never miss a local story.
Kansas City Democrat Rep. John Burnett said the bill will make businesses less safe for consumers. He says the state already has tough concealed weapons laws.
