WTF in Missouri???

I don’t even know what to say about this one…

From CBS St. Louis-

Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, has proposed a bill that would create an offense for failing to prevent an illegal firearm possession or for the failure to safely store a firearm. The bill also would require a parent or guardian with a child enrolled in a school to notify the school district — or the governing body of a private or charter school — that the parent or guardian owns a firearm.

“This bill is very important to me because in urban cities across the nation, we experience gun violence every single day and usually our type of gun violence deals with people who live in high poverty areas, areas where there aren’t enough resources,” Chappelle-Nadal said.

Under the bill, an offense would be a Class A misdemeanor unless death or injury results, making the offense a Class D felony.

The offense would be committed if a parent or guardian fails to report the possession of a firearm by a child under the age of 18 or if a parent recklessly stores a firearm allowing the child to acquire it, by not storing it in a secure locked location.

I’m just shaking my head over this one…

  1. So doctors are to ask if we HAVE guns, and now the schools are collecting information for tracking purposes?

    Massive fail do I see in this, and can safely predict even more massive non-compliance in the unlikely event it passes.

  2. It’s nothing. A dead issue going into the Missouri legislature. Missouri also has a bill this session to reduce concealed carry restrictions as well. Except for the governor who basically ran unopposed and a few reps from the St. Louis and KC areas Mo. is almost completely Republican dominated now and not the spineless Federal Level republicans either.

    This bill is just more Lefty Liberal Feminist religious trash.

  3. Were it to pass, it would be another reason to get your kids out of the public school system.

  4. Rev- Yep, and talk about a hackable data base… sigh

    Pioneer- Thanks for the update!

    Ed- Me too!

    Anon- True!

  5. U city as it’s called by local (Ex local) because of it’s location by Washington University, is a bipolar city. It is bordered on all sides by St. Louis city on one side, Wellston on another, both very bad very crime ridden areas, Clayton an extremely affluent area and low crime area, Clayton Hills, a somewhat middle class area, Ladue an extremely affluent area, and some others I can’t remember. But from the east side of U city it’s extremely poor high crime to the west side extremely affluent and low crime. And when i say high crime I mean HIGH as U-City borders one of the worst areas of St. Louis city and also Wellston to the north, which is very very bad 80%+ Section 8 and HUD housing. I worked for their housing authority and it was nothing to have 7 or 8 shootings every weekend. And the cops spend most of their time either in the station or out of the city completely getting food for free up in Northwoods or Jennings or even Normandy or Bel-Ridge.

    So considering where she is is from THAT bad of an area she probably thinks she is doing good. Not excusing it but I can understand where she is coming from. And I totally disagree with it.

  6. I am almost to the giggling hysterically over some of these bills. The one bullet bill in Connecticut is absurd as well. I swear the politicians coming up with this drivel just thought “What is the stupidest thing I can say to SEEM like I care to shut my anti-gun people up and make them leave me alone.” They can’t possibly imagine any of it will win.

  7. Since my daughter’s pediatrician wants me to take him shooting, and I wear pro-gun T-shirts and hats to her middle school, and she’s told people that she likes to shoot and has shot a machine gun….I’d say this is moot in my case.
