By now, I believe most of us who consider ourselves gun people, have heard of Constitutional Carry. The State of Missouri has become the 11th state to enact the right to carry a concealed firearm for personal protection without a permit. There is however a considerable amount of confusion around this new law, which goes into affect on January 1, 2017. This law is for Missouri residents to carry in Missouri. The Kansas law is for Kansas residents to carry in Kansas.
