Seriously, what the hell is going on with semiautos?

How did we manage to survive the last century with these evil devices on the loose?

I swear, I do not get bans on technology. It is solving the wrong problem. The worst part is that an outlier shooting by a madman that is hardly the norm is what these states are basing their gun control policies on.

I am very surprised they would do this in Missouri though. Is St. Louis that Liberal? I know the rest of the state sure isn't.

St. Louis city is liberal, but st. Louis county is veeeeery republican. And there are way more people in the county than the city. Plus rural MO is generally republican. I dont know what the hell this bill is, there has been no coverage or talk of it here at all. This is the only place ive heard about it.

Looks like a "conspiracy nut" website. I wouldn't give it much credit for veracity.

(2) The manufacture of an assault weapon or large capacity ammunition feeding device by a firearms manufacturer for the purpose of sale to any branch of the armed forces of the United States, or to a law enforcement agency in the state of Missouri for use by that agency or its employees, provided the manufacturer is properly licensed under federal and state laws; or

(3) The sale or transfer of an assault weapon or large capacity ammunition feeding device by a dealer that is properly licensed under federal, state, and local laws to any branch of the armed forces of the United States, or to a law enforcement agency in the state of Missouri for use by that agency or its employees for law enforcement purposes.

Don't believe this will get too far but if it did we would have a few more rights taken away if they went door to door demanding your rifles.
