Dear Secretary Cook:
On January 20, 2000, you submitted to us a summary statement prepared pursuant to Section 116.334, RSMo Supp. The summary statement which you have submitted is as follows:
Shall Section 571.080 of the Missouri Revised Statutes be repealed in its entirety so that it is no longer a crime in Missouri to transfer a concealable firearm without a permit?
Pursuant to Section 116.334, we approve the legal content and form of the proposed statement. Since our review of the statement is mandated by statute, no action we take with respect to such review should be construed as an endorsement of the petition or as the expression of any view regarding the objectives of its proponents.
