Hello and thank you for using JA! My goal is to provide you with excellent service and help with your legal problem.
.
Under Missouri's open carry laws, you do not need any type of permit to carry a weapon openly visible while properly holstered or slung. This is under the MO State Constitution, Bill of Rights, Section 23, which states:
.
That the right of every citizen to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or when lawfully summoned in aid of the civil power, shall not be questioned; but this shall not justify the wearing of concealed weapons.
.
The only thing that could hamper this is some type of local regulation because MO says that local ordinances will control the regulation of open carry.
.
But assuming there is no local ordinance, there is no legal restriction on open carry...
