Missouri voters struck down the right to conceal a weapon in 1999.

But some representatives now say you should be able to hide a gun anywhere in your vehicle.

House Majority Leader Wayne Crump says Missouri gun owners should feel as safe as gun owners in other parts of the country.

The Missouri House moved one step closer to letting you keep a weapon hidden in your car.

House Majority Leader Wayne Crump introduced the bill to allow Missouri residents to protect their guns and themselves.

But he says this isn't the same as proposed concealed weapons law struck down by voters in 1999.

Crump says he thinks this proposal will be enough to convince Gov. Holden to sign a concealed weapons law.

The proposal is nearing a final vote in the house.
