Auditor Nicole Galloway Statement on Governor Parson’s Special Session Call

July 15, 2020

Columbia, Mo. — Today, Auditor Nicole Galloway made the following statement about Governor Parson’s call for a special session to address violent crime:

“After advancing failed policies for almost two decades in Jefferson City, Governor Parson has finally realized that Missourians need action on the heartbreaking violence plaguing our communities. Last year, when Missourians pleaded with the Governor for a response to children being murdered by gunfire, he said he had to stay in his lane and instead called a special session about tax breaks for used cars and yachts. Then, the Governor promised our mayors that he would support legislation addressing gun violence — only to break his promise and deny he ever made it. As a legislator, Governor Parson voted in favor of making guns easier for criminals to acquire even when law enforcement begged him not to. It’s well past time that Governor Parson got serious about violence in Missouri. We’ll see just how serious he is this time about the biggest issue of all: finally taking common-sense action to get weapons off our streets.”
