To amend chapter 563, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to the Missouri right to protection act.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 563, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 563.023, to read as follows:
563.023. 1. The provisions of this section shall be called and may be cited as the "Missouri Right to Protection Act". It is an extension of the "Castle Doctrine".
2. Any lawful citizen of Missouri has the right under the United States Constitution to protect themselves, including but not limited to, the following:
(1) By the use of guns and ammunition;
(2) By the use of mace or other repellants; and
(3) By any other means necessary to stop an assailant.
3. Any lawful citizen of Missouri has the right to defend himself or herself, unless he or she is in the act of committing a crime, without interference from federal or state agencies.
4. Law abiding citizens of Missouri shall not have their gun or ammunition rights waived by any governmental agency nor shall their guns or ammunition be tracked, with but not limited to, markings or radio frequency identification (RFID) dust, paint, or by any other direct identifiers.
5. Any lawful citizen of Missouri has the constitutional right to privacy in such citizen's home, including but not limited to such person's home, farm, vehicle, trailer, or any other place of domicile, and to be anonymous as long as such citizen is not in the act of committing a crime. America was founded on the principles of freedom from persecution by the government. It was meant to be that the federal and state governments were not intended to have the power that they have surmised in the last eighty years. Missouri citizens have the right to the protections listed in this section as was set out in the United States Constitution. No governmental entity has the authority to supersede these constitutional guarantees.
