State lawmakers say they will evalutate the State Supreme Court ruling to decide what changes must be made to fully enact the conceal and carry law. The ruling questions whether the Legislature violated the Hancock Amendment’s prohibition against unfunded mandates. Under the law, county sheriffs would charge a $100 permit feeto be deposited in the sheriff’s revolving fund that pays for equipment and training. Four counties, in particular Kansas City’s Jackson County, asserted that wouldn’t allow the money to cover processing costs, creating an unfunded mandate. House sponsor Larry Crawford of California says he be will talking with colleagues about addressing the court’s concern. Senate Leader Peter Kinder of Cape Girardeau sponsored the legislation in that chamber. He says study will proceed action. Kinder though says he’s delighted with the ruling, noting that it found nothing in the state constitution to prohibit the legislature from enacting a conceal and carry law.
