There is not much information on the information page for Missouri, and I am wanting to ask those of you from the state who know the laws. I will be traveling through the state Mid-August, and am wondering about the laws.
Unrestricted. If you are 21 or older, and may otherwise legally possess a firearm, you may have your loaded handgun anywhere in the vehicle, concealed or otherwise. Long guns must be in plain view.
MO recognizes ANY other states CCW permit, which is necessary to CC while on foot. OC is allowed by state law, but may be prohibited locally. Unless you are familiar with the local codes, you should probably avoid OC.
3. Subdivisions (1), (5), (8), and (10) of subsection 1 of this section do not apply when the actor is transporting such weapons in a nonfunctioning state or in an unloaded state when ammunition is not readily accessible or when such weapons are not readily accessible. Subdivision (1) of subsection 1 of this section does not apply to any person twenty-one years of age or older transporting a concealable firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle, so long as such concealable firearm is otherwise lawfully possessed, nor when the actor is also in possession of an exposed firearm or projectile weapon for the lawful pursuit of game, or is in his or her dwelling unit or upon premises over which the actor has possession, authority or control, or is traveling in a continuous journey peaceably through this state. Subdivision (10) of subsection 1 of this section does not apply if the firearm is otherwise lawfully possessed by a person while traversing school premises for the purposes of transporting a student to or from school, or possessed by an adult for the purposes of facilitation of a school-sanctioned firearm-related event.
