  • Beginning Aug. 28, Missouri’s sheriffs will be issuing permits to carry concealed guns as well as renewing permits, under a new law, SB75, signed by Gov. Jay Nixon.
    The permits have previously been issued by the Missouri Department of Revenue, and this will continue until Aug. 28.
    Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Shinn reported the following details about the new gun permit process.
    To apply for a new Conceal Carry Permit (CCW) or renew one, submit the required fees and paperwork to the sheriff of the county in which you reside. The fee for an original application is $100, and the renewal fee is $50.
    Upon completion of the required background checks, successful applicants will be issued a CCW permit by the sheriff.
    The permits issued Aug. 28 or later will be valid for five years, after which they must be renewed. If not renewed after six months, they will be voided.
    Permits issues prior to Aug. 28 will be valid until their expiration date, at which time they need to be renewed by the sheriff.
    Changes of name or address, and reports of a lost or stolen permit will need to be reported the sheriff, after which the sheriff will issue a new permit with updated information for a $10 fee.
    Shinn requested applicants make an appointment by calling (573) 769-2077, Ext. 1406.
