The MO Supreme Court Opinion has been released and is 5-2 in our favor -- in short, the injunction is dissolved (except for LTC permit opt-out for Greene, Jackson, Camden, and Cape Girardeau Counties), the bond has not been released, and it's clearly constitutional with regards to Article I, Section 23! There are issues regarding Hancock that require further study. An analysis will be posted as soon as it's available.
The most frequently asked question is, "When are car carry and out-of-state carry permits legal?" Research on this critical question does not provide as specific an answer as we would like.
The law is somewhat vague on the effective date of this Opinion. Due to a Court Rule which says Post Opinion Motions can be filed up to 15 days after the Opinion is issued, the safer course is to not carry in your car or with an out-of-state permit until that time has elapsed. (The Opinion was handed down February 26, fifteen calendar days would be March 12.)
The Hancock issues in this Opinion are less than clear and are still currently being researched. Please be patient.
In the meantime, know that the Legislature is currently working on a Bill to "fix" any perceived Hancock problem with the LTC Law.
