This work contains two chapters from a longer work titled The Civil Right to Keep and Bear Arms: Federal and Missouri Perspectives (2023 Edition). The included chapters address two subjects. First, the chapters address application to select circumstances of the principles adopted in New York State Rifle & Pistol Ass'n, Inc. v. Bruen, 142 S. Ct. 2111 (2022). Those include (i) non-temporary governmental seizure or retention of individual arms (in contrast to a ban on all a subject's firearms possession and seizures in Terry stops); (ii) changes in Federal regulation mandating indefinite records retention by dealers; (iii) disabilities arising from non-violent criminal convictions; (iv) State restrictions on licensure of non-residents; and (v) prohibitions on standard-capacity magazines. Second, the chapters address the general contours of firearms restrictions under Missouri law.
