Gun Safety Issues in Missouri

Gun Safety Issues in Missouri
Wednesday, January 9, 2019
7:00 p.m.
On CAT TV

Presenter:
Catey Terry
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense

Moderator:
Randy Picht, executive director, Reynolds Journalism Institute

Did you know? Missouri became a constitutional carry state in January 2017. No permit is required to openly or conceal carry a firearm. There is no requirement to register firearms or obtain a purchase permit and some specially trained school employees are allowed to carry firearms on school grounds.

Our January 9, CAT-TV show will focus on these and related issues and the approach being taken on gun safety by one group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense.

This program will be up on our website a few days later, or at http://www.columbiaaccess.tv.

The show replays on CAT TV at 7:00 a.m. on Tues., Thurs. and Sat. and 7:30 p.m. on Mon., Wed., Fri. and Sun. CAT TV is found on Mediacom Channel 85, Charter Communications 983, and CenturyTel Prism 98.

A YouTube version will be sent to members.
