Concerned about nervous tourists, Lake Ozark is banning the open carry of firearms

The vote by the board of aldermen has put the town squarely in the middle of a national debate on gun rights. Although less than a month old, the ordinance could soon become moot. A bill passed by Missouri lawmakers would void any local ordinance that prohibits openly carrying a firearm by anyone with a valid concealed carry permit. It currently awaits action by Gov. Jay Nixon.
