Wait, I thought all of the anti-gun folks keep saying, “Don’t worry, no one is talking about confiscation of your guns.”

Well, apparently Missouri Democrats are.

The Missouri state legislature is strongly Republican controlled so the bill is likely to go nowhere, but it’s further proof that the anti-gunners goal is confiscation.

Here is the worrying part of the bill:
Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution:

(1) Remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri;

(2) Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or

(3) Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.

5. Unlawful manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of an assault weapon or a large capacity magazine is a class C felony.

Here is a link to the full bill.
