Missouri State Senate

Introduced

SB 352 - This act prohibits a county, municipality, or other governmental body, or agent of one of the above, from participating in a program in which individuals are given a thing of value in exchange for surrendering a firearm unless the county, municipality or governmental body adopts an ordinance providing that any firearm received will be offered for sale or trade to a licensed firearms dealer.

The proceeds from the sale must be deposited with the county, municipality, or governmental body unless the proceeds are collected by a sheriff, in which case they must be deposited in the County Sheriff's Revolving Fund.

If the firearm is not sold or traded after being offered to at least two licensed firearms dealers, then the county, municipality, or governmental body may destroy the firearm.

This provision is identical to a provision of the truly agreed to and finally passed SCS/HCS/HB 436 (2013) and a provision of the truly agreed to and finally passed SCS/HB 533 (2013).
