Constitution's ban should apply to officers too
To the editor:
In response to the article "Judge blocks concealed guns measure": I hope, since Missouri's Constitution mandates that keeping and bearing arms "does not justify carrying concealed." that the enlightened governor will issue a proclamation to all law enforcers stating that their backup pieces (usually carried concealed) are now illegal and that the use of same will violate the Missouri Constitution.
Either that, or change the constitution to allow for concealed carry by all who wish, thereby making it unequivocally clear that no resident (private or public, government or not) is above the constitution.
