In 2011, Missouri enacted a law making it the crime of fraudulent purchase of a firearm if a person:

  • Knowingly solicits, persuades, encourages or entices a licensed dealer or private seller of firearms or ammunition to transfer a firearm or ammunition under circumstances which the person knows would violate Missouri or federal law;
  • Provides to a licensed dealer or private seller of firearms or ammunition what the person knows to be materially false information with intent to deceive the dealer or seller about the legality of a transfer of a firearm or ammunition; or
  • Willfully procures another to violate either of these provisions.1

Missouri does not otherwise regulate firearms trafficking.
