As St. Louis and Kansas City deal with increasing gun violence, they are taking aim at Missouri’s lax gun laws.
Both cities are working to pass legislation that would get around state guns laws. Missouri law allows people to carry concealed weapons without a permit.
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey, a Republican, says his office has put St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones’ office “on notice” over her proposed restrictions that Bailey says are unconstitutional.
Both cities are working to ban high-powered guns and keep guns out of the hands of minors.
