Frontier justice bill passes House
The Missouri House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed Rep. Marilyn Ruestman's frontier justice bill Monday. A 143-4 vote moves the Joplin Republican's bill, which allows property owners to use deadly force against intruders, to the Senate. The bill is the chief legislative focus of the National Rifle Association.
