Transporting Firearms Through Missouri

The laws governing the legal use, storage and carrying of firearms are constantly changing. Below are the applicable laws in the State of Missouri as of 1/18/2013. The below information is designed to be a guide and not the final word. If you have specific questions, please refer to the Missouri State Legislation chapter 571at mo.gov Another great source is dps.mo.gov


Missouri now permits any person who is at least 21 years old to transport a concealable firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle. No concealed carry endorsement is required.  Under the old law, the peaceable journey exception to the unlawful-use-of-a-weapon law permitted travelers on a continuous peaceablejourney to carry a concealed weapon. The peaceable journey exception is still in the law, and may apply in circumstances where the new law does not (i.e. ifthe person is less than 21 years old). Also, any coroner, deputy coroner, medical examiner, or assistant medical examiner may carry a concealable firearm uponor about their person without an endorsement.

Note: This law does not affect the law prohibiting possession of a concealable firearm by a dangerous felon.
