Missouri Gun Owners Must Contact Schools In Proposed Legislation

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Missouri state Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal wants parents to notify schools if they own a gun. She also wants to make failing to prevent guns getting into the wrong hands an illegal offense. The state senator is holding a news conference on Wednesday in Jefferson city to release the proposed legislation.

According to a release from the Senator’s office Senate Bill 124 will make, “failing to prevent illegal firearm possession, it creates the offense of negligent storage of a firearm and it requires a parent or guardian enrolling a child in school to notify the school district or the governing body of a private or charter school that the parent or guardian owns a firearm.”

A Missouri Democrat wants to force parents to inform school officials of firearms ownership.

“We are not trying to take away anyone’s gun, period,” State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal told KMOV in St. Louis. “We’re not even asking what kind of gun you have. We want the school district to be able to say, ‘you know what, there are some really terrible things going on right now,’ and we need to be able to talk to the parent that we know they have a gun and make sure that there is security, that this gun is stored securely.”

The proposed law would criminalize and impose a $100 fine on parents who fail to inform public and private school officials and $1,000 if they are found guilty of “negligent storage of a firearm” and fail to notify a school that they own a firearm.

"It’s the next idea in a long list of proposed ideas for gun control: Making it mandatory for parents to notify their children’s schools about their gun supply," reports KCTV in Kansas City.

Timothy Birdnow, writing for the American Thinker, believes the proposed law “is intended to be as broad as possible, to open the door for more and stricter regulations down the road. Were Chappelle-Nadal putting forth a serious bill she would have specific definitions and a very circumscribed legal requirement. It is open-ended for a reason.”

Birdnow argues the law is part of a larger effort to brainwash children and turn them against the Second Amendment and the idea of gun ownership. “The fact is the Left has wanted all vestiges, indeed, all thoughts of firearm ownership washed away,” he writes.

Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, told the Woman’s National Democratic Club in 1995 he wanted to use a national anti-smoking campaign as a model to “change the hearts and minds of people in Washington, DC” about the Second Amendment.

Chappell-Nadal’s bill, however, faces an uphill battle. Earlier this month, Missouri Republican state Sen. Brian Munzlinger introduced legislation designed to nullify any federal law restricting semiautomatic firearms in the Show Me State. The law would make it a felony for federal agents to impose restrictions on firearms. Republican Casey Guernsey introduced a similar bill in the Missouri House.

Moronic proposal...these people don't have a clue.

Is it ironic that this is happening in the "show me state"? :D "Show me your guns."


More seriously, wouldn't that be a defacto gun registry? If that is illegal for the BATF, why isn't it illegal for the various state/county agencies?
Yes, i realize there are states that require firearms owners to have a "permit to buy" or something like the Sillinois FOID cards for firearms owners; that doesn't mean i think either is legal or right.

The government, be it local or national, undermine our liberties daily.
