Retention of Sales & Background Check Records in Missouri

Posted on January 2, 2012

Missouri makes it a violation of state law for a licensed dealer to violate the federal provision prohibiting dealers from transferring a firearm to any person unless the dealer notes in the required records the name, age, and place of residence of the purchaser if the purchaser is an individual, or the identity and principal and local places of business of the purchaser if the purchaser is a corporation or other business entity.1

Missouri has no other retention or reporting requirements for firearm sales or background check records.

See our Retention of Firearm Sales and Background Check Records policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
